CW President Confirms Final Number of Gossip Girl Episodes, Loves Supernatural

by at . Comments

The CW President Mark Pedowitz took the stage this morning at the Television Critics Association press tour and touched on a number of topics related to his network, from showing saying goodbye to shows he hopes say hello in the near future.

Read on for a detailed rundown of the executive's Q&A session with reporters...

  • Ed Westwick as Chuck Bass Pic
  • Scheming Sam

The final season of Gossip Girl will consist of 10 episodes and the network may air a One Tree Hill-esque retrospective. Said Pedowitz: "I'm a big believer in allowing the audience to say farewell to their shows. It’s important for us on this side of the fence to give a satisfactory ending.”

Pedowitz says a Supernatural Season 8 renewal was a "no-brainer" and he's hoping for a ninth season at the very least. He also confirmed that Misha Collins will appear in a minimum of eight upcoming episodes.

Why did The Secret Circle fail? "Not enough good-looking men. Not enough sense of humor."

The L.A. Complex is performing well digitally and Pedowitz plans to air all Season 2 episodes.

Clearly an executive who actually watches his network's programs, Pedowitz said of The Vampire Diaries Season 4: "There's always new cast members and those who are dead can always come back to life."

He would love to see the network air some kind of Hunger Games-like series and has had phone calls about turning the brutal Japanese film Battle Royale into a series.

I have bought a coplue of them just out of curiosity. I do not care at all about Brad and Angelina, etc. Some people seek something above themselves to give meaning to their lives. They worship celebrities and live vicariously through them. They should get a life . I have a full life, and I care nothing about celebrities. Was this answer helpful?

Misha Collins appearing in more episodes was the best news for Supernatural I heard recentely. hm..Season 9...gotto think about that. I guess it's ok since jenson and jared are the best and love to see them continue. Can't wait for season 8.

Now, the end is real: 10 episodes and goodbye :( At least, Supernatural keep going for two seasons more (and we hope for three, four..)

Forgot to add, I hope season 6 begins where season 2 ended. The show would be better off for all of the characters if seasons 345 were someone's very bad nightmare.

Just rewatched all of GG and boy was the Dair thing out of nowhere and contrived. I know B needed to use someone in the interim to test her love for C but did it have to be another main character. Did it have to be D. CeCe's words kept ringing in my ears as I watched them together. Anyway, Love that of all Lilly's children she loves Chuck the most. Hope she helps him to take down dear old dad and then gets back with Rufus. I hope Blair and Chuck are happy as they are the true loves of G.G

A production of series still is making mistakes and introduces a guest actors in a too short season, and the audience just wants to watch what will happen with Serena, Dan, Chuck, Blair and Nate, and others who were there in season 1 and 2! My opinion is that at the end of the GG should be happy together Serena and Dan, and Chuck and Blair, and Lily and Rufus and maybe Nate and Jenny!

It is good that will be six season with these few episodes - only 10! Due to falling ratings of GG, production is going to make only 10 new episodes in season 6, it is too few to be completed in a quality way to end GG. Production of the series was ruined GG from season 3, and each of the following season was getting worse and worse! At the end of season 5 GG did not have anything to do with season 1 and 2, and those are, in the opinion of many viewers, were the best! So viewers will get season 6 with 10 episodes, which are few, and eventually special episode that somehow ends up as a story that the audience wants. Whatever the extent of this special episode (1 or 2 hours) will not be enough to fix what was ruined during the 3, 4 and 5 of the season. A production of series still is making mistakes and introduces a guest actors in a too short season, and the audience just wants to watch what will happen with Serena, Dan, Chuck, Blair and Nate, and others who were there in season 1 and 2! My opinion is that at the end of the GG should be happy together Serena and Dan, and Chuck and Blair, and Lily and Rufus and maybe Nate and Jenny!

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
