The final season of The CW’s Gossip Girl begins Monday and if the teasers are any indication, trouble will be brewing in the Big Apple — moreso than ever before. When the sixth season kicks off, viewers will see some major changes for the core group: Serena (Blake Lively) has moved on to a new boytoy (guest star Barry Watson), Blair (Leighton Meester) and Chuck’s (Ed Westwick) relationship remains in the gray, Dan (Penn Badgley) is ready to take on “Manhattan’s elite” with a new book and Nate (Chace Crawford) is on his own with The Spectator.
As executive producer Sara Goodman tells it, the final 10 episodes of the series will end on a high note — which now includes the identity of the anonymous blogger. “How we end Gossip Girl will be satisfying. I think everyone will be happy,” the series’ showrunner tells The Hollywood Reporter.
THR: You’ve described Steven (Barry Watson) as a much more grown-up match for Serena. Does he represent the type of man she should be with?
Goodman: We really wanted her to be in an adult relationship. We wanted her to have that change. I guess we’ll see if she’s ready for it or not, or if this is who she belongs with. But he absolutely is the most viable love interest than we’ve ever had for her – in a long-term way.
THR: How much of what Serena was up to in the summer be revealed?
Goodman: We’re more moving forward. We’ll just take it at face value [from what is said during the premiere].
