It took 90210 over 10 years to get a spin-off, but Gossip Girl gets one after one season. They want to give co-star Taylor Momsen her own series or they may introduce a new character next season for the spin-off…it’s all up in the air right now, but they do know they want to set the series at a girls boarding school and they want to use the arc of Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen’s character) based on the book series, The It Girl for the spin-off.
If the series does go, it doesn’t mean it will be on the CW, but they do have right of first refusal on any Gossip Girl series…AND, I’m sure the CW wouldn’t let a spin-off go on another network when their own is struggling. Then again, this is all hear-say…so nothing has been set in stone.
I’ve been dying to read The It Girl and haven’t had the time, has anyone read it…think the spin-off is a good idea?
