The beginning of the end is upon us, Gossip Girl fans.
Just days prior to the season five finale, The CW has announced - as expected - that the series will return as part of that network's 2012-2013 schedule... for a shortened final season.
It will be comprised of only 11 episodes.
Moreover, with Josh Safran now out, Executive Producer Sara Goodman has been elevated to show runner. She will helm the final run of episodes.
The CW will formalize its entire new schedule on Thursday, May 17 at the network's Upfront presentation in New York City. TV Fanatic will be there!
