Gossip Girl graduating, spinning off?

Cutbacks are obvious all over the place in television, but don't be worried about seeing less of The CW's Gossip Girl. In fact, if everything goes right, expect to see more of the show that has made many fathers across the country lock up their hormonally charged daughters.

Moles inside the network told Variety that The CW is working on a plan to make a new Gossip Girl show, and why not? The CW is targeting the young female demographic, and young ladies and old ladies who think they're young ladies flock to Gossip Girl constantly.

The report says The CW would plant a seed for the new show in an upcoming episode of Gossip Girl--sort of a makeshift pilot for the potential spin-off. If the viewer response is positive, fast-track the show, baby!

As for who the show would focus on, that's still up in the air. But unlike in the books Gossip Girl is based on, it won't be Jenny Humphrey (played by Taylor Momsen). (Jenny Humphrey went on to star in the It Girl books.) If it happens, the current idea is to branch out one of the existing main characters other than Jenny.

The original Gossip Girl mothership will continue on, of course, and the show will see new environs. Gossip-gushers New York Magazine confirmed with Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage that next season the cast will move on to college.

"One of the problems with 90210, for example, was that their stage was high school," Savage told the magazine. "We feel like ours is New York." City of course, I don't think we'll see Serena prance on over to Poughkeepsie anytime soon.

Let's see which characters schedule 9 a.m. classes. What do you think of Gossip Girl expanding and matriculating? And who do you want to see as the focal point of a new Gossip Girl show?

i really believe that the TV evolved way to fast, I mean the book had 9 volumes, I believe, before any spin off had apeared. I really like these characters, but the show does not revolve around them, it revolves around the Upper East Side teenagers

Apparently the spin off is going to be of Lilly when she was growing up and meets Rufus for the first time! :)

I'm all for a show for Taylor Momsen... Jenny Humphries. Her character is the only interesting one besides Serena anyway. Unless they want to really make it intersting, and make a series about the parents!!! Ha Ha Ha!

This youth culture! I am over 50, male, straight, and find myself fascinated by the parents' story lines. I have always loved Kelly Rutherford and Margaret Colin...

Frankly, I don't much like the idea of a spin-off show at all. Spin-offs rarely work well-- and sometimes cause the main show to sink, too. And one of the reasons GG works so well is the interplay between the characters.

Of course, the likelihood of them all ending up at the same school is minimal. So, I suppose one option would they have one series set at, say, Yale (since they visited there already), and another at a different Ivy?

I think it might be Penelope or Hazel..or one of the follower girls who need a life of their own.

My guess is that they would do Vanessa, she hasn't really been in this season at all. I would like to see a Vanessa spin off, that would be cool. Jenny, eh, not so much, I'm not her biggest fan. But Vanessa, I could get on board with that.

I'm confused as to why its not going to be Jenny. The story is already set up from the books. I read the GG books, but couldn't get into the It Girl ones however, so maybe it should be someone else. But Jenny is already so separate. I don't know who they would make it, but I'll be watching.

Just awesome an GG spinoff,they have many directions that they could go, but the best would about Chuck and how he moves forward after his father death, but Blair can do better than Chuck!! Blair and Chuck together that would be wrong!!

Give Jenny her own show! She is constantly undermined in Gossip Girl by the bigger characters, she needs her chance to shine now give her it!

I actually think the people who run The CW are trying to make it fail.

Anything that would ruin CB would suck! I mean I would love Chuck or Blair to get their own show but it would be horrible without each other. Hopefully Dan, Nate, or Vanessa.

As long as it isnt Nate or Vanessa, Im good. I would have loved a Jenny one (Myabe titled "Little J"!!!), but most people hate her, so thats a no.
