Gossip Girl executive producer Joshua Safran has revealed that the show is still waiting on the go signal for the sixth season. The end of the current, season five, is not until May, but they have to start preparing for the finale.
And he says, they are not preparing for any end to the series, just the season itself, and they will definitely have more stories to tell. Suffice to say, there’s going to be a huge cliffhanger at the end of the season. The show deserves at least one more year to wrap it all up and give the viewers a satisfying ending.
“I’m hoping it goes another year and then I think if it were to end then, it’d be okay. If it were to continue, I’d be super happy as well.”
For now though, the real focus is on what is going to happen in the show’s 100th episode, the much-awaited wedding. And the producers say it’s going to be a nod to the very beginnings of the series. When they prepared the big story, they had to watch some of Gossip Girl’s past episode again so they can have a few notes and touches, a homage to the earlier season.
