TCA Press Tour: Get the gossip on 'Gossip Girl's' upcoming season
When Donna and Brenda, those prissy gals of “Beverly Hills, 90210," headed to Paris …they only got as far as the Universal backlot. Psh! When you’re Serena and Blair, only the real thing will do.
The first two episodes of “Gossip Girl” will feature the besties parading around Paris--the real one. From the Eiffel Tower and Musee d'Orsay to the ultra chic and fashionable avenue Montaigne, the gals are making the rounds and, judging from the sneak peak of footage shown Thursday at the TCA press tour, they may be kissing some boys in the process … or, at least Serena is.
When we left off, little Miss Jenny lost her innocence to Chuck. Dorota welcomed a baby. Dan discovered he fathered a baby (maybe) … it’s hard to say when Georgina is involved. Serena remained Nate-less but managed to wake up in bed next to Dan. Blair said “bon jour” to Paris. And the moment that had us clutching our string of fake Forever 21 pearls: a mugger stole Chuck’s would-be engagement ring (for Blair) before shooting the bow-tied, plaid-loving lad!
So what’s next for our favorite Upper Eastsiders? Ed Westwick, who plays Chuck, was joined onstage by executive producers Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran to talk GG. Here’s a small taste of what to expect in the upcoming season. Stop now if you don’t want the gossip!
--Chuck and Blair: Vive le Chuck! Not even a gunshot could keep Chuck down. Cane in tow, Mr. Bass lives on and he’ll have an encounter with Blair in Paris—“I didn’t have to use my school French,” Westwick assured us--that will have “explosive consequences for the rest of the season,” Schwartz said.
--Georgina: Like an outdated outfit hogging valuable closet space, Georgina finds a way out and back into your life. “You will be seeing more of Georgina Sparks in more ways than one,” Savage said.
--Jenny: She may have left at the end of the season, but Jenny will be back with “as much drama as possible,” Savage said. She’ll reappear sometime in the season.
“Gossip Girl” returns Monday, Sept. 13 at 9 p.m.
