Goodbye Gossip Girl
After six dramatic seasons following the privileged lives of Manhattan’s elite, Gossip Girl has said its final farewells. Luckily, the show wrapped up with a perfect ending, tying up all the loose ends, including the identity of Gossip Girl. It seems obvious now, of course. But thinking back to all the possible suspects, did you ever consider it would be someone as gossip-centered as Lonely Boy himself?
New to The CW
Now that the secret’s out and the show has concluded, your Monday nights are left with a void. If you were still hoping to remain a couch potato that night, not to worry. The Carrie Diaries can fill that hole in your heart. Like Gossip Girl, it’s centered in Manhattan. But don’t expect to glean the latest fashion trends, not unless you’re into 80s vintage. The entire show is set in 1984, but don’t let that deter you. The absence of smart phones and the fashion are the only giveaways, and some of Carrie Bradshaw’s outfits having even come back in style.
The Gossip Girl Stars Move On
If a teenage Sex and the City or modern fairytales aren’t your thing, and you’re more interested in following the GG stars as they embark on their next projects, here’s the scoop. None have signed on for new TV shows yet, except Connor Paolo who played Erik van der Woodsen. He moved on to the hit drama Revenge in 2011. But most of the main stars (Blake Lively excluded) have films set to release in 2013-14, including a remake of Romeo & Juliet staring Ed Westwick (Chuck) as Tybalt.
