After five seasons of OMFG fashion moments and more indelible drama-for-your-mama than one could stomach, CW's Gossip Girl is gearing up for its sixth and final season.
On Thursday, the CW Network presented its 2012-13 broadcast schedule in New York. Side note: Flo Rida opened the presentation with a musical medley of his top hits, but I digress. Gossip Girl, the fashionable Manhattan-based show starring golden girl, Louboutin-lover and stylist-to-herself Blake Lively, and the adorable, multi-talented Leighton Meester, will take the 9-10 p.m. EST time slot on Monday nights in October. The show, which is executive produced by The O.C.'s Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, has fueled the fashion-feeding habits of industry insiders since its astounding debut season in 2007.
Has the CW found a replacement for its targeted demographic? As we noted earlier this year, The Carrie Diaries, based on the earlier years of Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, will debut in January, replacing the dramz of GG. The new series will star AnnaSophia Robb as the '80s Carrie according to the release.
As for what will become of Manhattan's elite in their final season? The CW provides a brief synopsis. WARNING: SPOILER ALERT:
Season six opens with the Upper East Siders working together to find one of their own. Serena has gone off the grid, beyond even the reach of Gossip Girl. Her friends fear for the worst and hope for the best, but even they can't imagine where they will ultimately find her.
Meanwhile, Blair has offered Chuck her heart, but is her love enough to help him win back his empire?
Lonely Boy Dan has written a new book that promises to make even more trouble than the first, and this time he has no desire to remain anonymous.
Nate is determined to finally reveal the true identity of Gossip Girl, thereby making a name for The Spectator, and himself.
Lily and Rufus turn on one another when Rufus makes a surprising new ally who threatens Lily and her family. Anywhere else it would be too much drama to handle, but this is the Upper East Side.
And when Bart Bass, Jack Bass and Georgina Sparks show up to raise hell, it's a fight to the spectacular series finale.
Who comes out on top? That's one secret I'll never tell… xoxo, Gossip Girl.
