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.

I love gossip girl, please dont stop writing about it, its really good
and i cant get enough of it!!


Please,don't stop yet. you misunderstood. Dan and Serena aren't perfect for each other... Serena and Nate belong to each other..They...They zing!!!! Dan and Vanessa are perfect for each other. They have a lot in common. As for Serena and Dan, nothing-in-common. please i want to watch another gossip girl. tell them season 7 is the last one. break up dan and serena and i'll be moving on and forget gossip girl. i'm not the only gossip girl in the world. xoxo gossip girl.


DO NOT CANCEL GOSSIP GIRL!!! if your losing fans make the show better and get them back! don't give up gossip girl is amazing listen to your fans!!!


Chuck+Blair && Serena+Dan


I think the ending should be chuck+Blair && Serena+Dan! I am from Ethiopia, Thank You!


Please dont end Gossip Girl ... Keep pumping them out Its by far the best series of its kind and i love the whole concept of the program and couldnt imagine TV without it I am due to buy the whole seasons soon and would like it to continue Ive never even heard of CW until Gossip Girl and its very unlikely i will remember them if this program stops


Please do not end GG, there are thousands of viewers and we love it!!! Dont do it!


another version of GG perhaps? something more serious? according to their agae?


It is true that Safran guy is delusional. He tried experimenting and breaking the dynamics of the group with his creative fantasies but they didnt work! But hey it seemed like he would not listen despite the outcry of the fans and look where it got the show! I am glad season 6 is going back to its roots. it is what made the fans love gossip girl to begin with


*can't wait for Australia

Gossip Girl Quotes

Rita: Luckily, Robin was working with me in New York this week and able to bring along a very special video of Blair.
Tiffany: What is it?
Penelope: A Jack Bass sex tape?
Tiffany: A Nelly Yuki snuff film?

It only takes one video to topple an entire career. If you don't believe me just YouTube Connie Chung piano.
