Gossip Girl Producers: Return to "Core Dynamics and Characters" Ahead

at . Comments

Gossip Girl's core characters and dynamics will be on display in the CW drama's sixth and final season this fall, according to executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.

With show-runner Josh Safran departing to helm Smash Season 2, and producer Sara Goodman elevated to his former role, one can at least hope (if not expect) this will actually be the case.

Schwartz confirms that the 11-episode Gossip Girl Season 6 will focus on a return to the “core dynamics and the core characters” that drew fans to the show in droves at the outset.

Blair and Chuck

Adds Savage of the coming conclusion to the show:

“There are definitely some things we want to see in the Gossip Girl series finale, and we think we have a great opportunity to tell those final stories and honor our characters and honor our fans."

"We’re all really excited for this final run.”

What about you? Are you excited or apathetic? Do you think the show will redeem itself in its final chapter? What kind of stories are you hoping to see in the sixth season swan song come October?

Hi everyone!!! Guess what? Leighton Meester is here in the Philippines right now to endorse a local clothing line. Ahead of her of 2 years is Ed Westwick who also endorsed the same brand. Philippines is so grateful to have Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf in the country. Filipino fans are so thrilled! Lucky us.


I dont think BOTH Darena and lilly/Rufus can happen. Its either one of them. Darena can be together if Lilly/Rufus break up cause they're still technically stepbrother/sisters.


The one thing that was great about this show is Chair, too bad they made this poor couple go through the most ridiculous of obstacles. I really hope Dair stays over as that was the most pathetic, contrived dribble ever.


i agree with Grrrrr they ruined the show it's too late the damage has already been done.Personally i stopped watching after 5x10 because i lost patience with these writers, they just kept ruining my favorite couple (chuck and blair) over and over.Now this couple is not the same anymore , did blair eally have to be screwed by louis and dan humphrey to realize that she is in fact in love with chuck? This show disgust me.


These producers/writers are a bunch of MORONS. They know they've ruined the show, so they turn back to season 1 + 2 to try and return to "core dynamics?" I'm sorry but what the hell is this sh*t? Characters are supposed to grow and develop. They're being completely lazy.
Season 5 finale was a letdown, totally. Especially with Serena, I felt like their not giving her character a fair chance to mature, she's just returning to how she was.
Dumb retards ruined my favourite show. Chair isn't even the same anymore, but I'll admit much better than Dair. And now they're cutting the final season in half. If they mess this up, I'll really hate them!


chuck and blair is the the only thing that they should fix! endgame!


My Season 6 prediction: Dan will die. SERENATE will happen. Happy ending.


@lila, is that even something to laugh about? Even before the start of the show that's what they have been introduced "spoiled rich kids" and that swapping partners theme is universal on teen soap. What's laughable is that you don't know what you are into.


I think we are all conceived in a bit to our wishes and predictions for season 6. And we lost sight of that the season 6 is the final season and that in the season 6 will be events to take place to complete the series. All the love stories that lasted 4-5 seasons (Serena and Dan, Chuck and Blair, Lily and Rufus) must be completed in a way that the audience is satisfied. In accordance with what the producers announced that in the season 6 will honor the characters in the series and viewers who follow the series from the beginning. 10-11 episodes a little to began with a new love story, this refers to Serena and Nate, because the two are not together since the end of season 3. In addition, not only the love stories that should have ended, but perhaps more importantly, the relationship between friends and between families.


As long as Nate/Serena and Dan/Vanessa are endgame then I'll be fine.
