at . Comments

We now know the date on which Gossip Girl will be signing off for good.

The CW confirmed today a December 17 series finale for the long-running drama, which will bid viewers one final "XOXO" with a just-announced TWO-HOUR episode.

Moreover, in news broken by TV Line, the network will air a special retrospective immediately prior to the installment.

Blair, Lily and Chuck

Not a great deal is known about the final Gossip Girl episode, except its title ("I Love You, New York XOXO"); the return of Jenny and Eric; and, oh, right, the possibility that we'll meet Chuck and Blair's son.

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.
