Wow, it sounds like they ruined basically every character on this show. I'm glad I stopped watching after the second season.

Huh, I failed to fathom that The Return of the Ring was the season finale. I thought the episode was too good to be true.

It amazes me still that not only did Sara Goodman (who wrote 5.24) manage to turn me off to watching GG with one single episode, but they've also convinced me to stay the hell away from the CW.

Rooting for the actors now to be able to get as far away from Stephanie Savage and company once the 6th season ends. Glad they've started rebelling already by not appearing at the Upfronts.

I was surprised that any of the main characters didn't appear at the Upfront.
But after all those boring episodes and season 6 coming, I'm not.

Let the rumor mill and speculation begin!! Personally, I can see a spin off better than this idea, but they always swore there would never be a SATC movie, too, so...

HollywoodNews.com: ‘Gossip Girl’ will be ending next season, so it only makes sense that fans speculate about the possibility of the show becoming a movie.
Chace Crawford, who plays Nate, was recently asked the question and didn’t exactly give the answer everyone wants to hear, states E! News. “I don’t know if I want that, or do not want that. I don’t know what the logistics would be on that. I would imagine it’s a long shot,” Crawford commented.
Instead, fans will have to settle for now on the last eleven episodes that will come with the final season.

Gossip Girl isn't SATC, GG has become progressively worse and it's viewers are waaaay down. NO MOVIE EVER!!!

^ That's what I was thinking. Gossip Girl hasn't been good for some time now, but the last 2 seasons of SATC were amazing.
I don't think the costume department is up to the challenge of the movie. Patricia Field might not be everyone's favourite, but she knows her characters' styles through and through. The way they've been dressing the entire cast in Gossip Girl is as if they've become parodies of themselves.

That huffingtonpost.com review is spot on. All the characters are so unlikeable know.

I just don't understand how the writers can't see how their story lines aren't positive examples for young people especially girls. I

don't watch Smash but I feel sorry for the fans cause that Josh Safran's clearly has weird ideas about how people should behave.

Gossip Girl Producers: Return to “Core Dynamics and Characters” in S6

Gossip Girl’s core characters and dynamics will be on display in the CW drama’s sixth and final season this fall, according to executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.
With show-runner Josh Safran departing to helm Smash Season 2, and producer Sara Goodman elevated to his former role, one can at least hope (if not expect) this will actually be the case.
Schwartz confirms that the 11-episode Gossip Girl Season 6 will focus on a return to the “core dynamics and the core characters” that drew fans to the show in droves at the outset.
Adds Savage of the coming conclusion to the show:
“There are definitely some things we want to see in the Gossip Girl series finale, and we think we have a great opportunity to tell those final stories and honor our characters and honor our fans.”
“We’re all really excited for this final run.”

Core dynamics? Blair and Nate together. Blair ruling with a Putin-esque iron fist. Serena trying to get her friends back after screwing up. Dan being soooooo different with his Jeff Buckley biopic hair. Chuck trying to rape 14 year olds.
When a show has to go back to the same dynamic as the first series you know they really strayed from the path. If they'd really written a good show the fans would be okay with the character's progression and change.

Agreed!

What a step back for a show when they cannot even support the characters' development, it's become beyond pathetic! and they want to honor their fans? all they've done the last two seasons was slapping them in the face repeatedly.

^This! Agree with you both. They've screwed up so many times and instead of trying to just make up for it by giving the plots interesting twists they keep making it so obvious they failed and just make two steps back again and again. Zero development, zero sympathy left for any of the characters. And with even the fashion being crap now this show has become entirely useless. Even random daily soaps seem more well-written than GG. You can just tell it's all ad-hoc decisions based on ratings and reviews. Oh, the fans don't like Dair, so let's go back to Chair. We've run out of random people to guest star on the show, let's bring back dead people. We can't follow a story line for more than 2 episodes, so let's bring on another boring blonde that turns out to be a not-so-sneaky-and-clever schemer. It's really a miracle this show has survived this long with the writing being so poor and the ratings constantly decreasing.

Not that reality is a big factor in GG, but did anyone notice that at the end of the last episode Blair is in a limo with her mother in Paris, and next thing we know she is waltzing into the Casino in Monte Carlo- and says to Jack "Thanks for the call"?? Like she was down the street or something??
