Is this a sign that after the writers' strike ends, Gossip Girl could see a second season? While the buzzed-about but low-rated series is on a strike-imposed hiatus, the CW is attempting to recruit more viewers by repeating the entire series from the beginning starting on Monday.
The replay of the season will kick off with a 90-minute special edition of the first episode, complete with bonus interviews from the cast. Other special features that night include stories on the show's fashion and music and as-yet-unaired clips. The remaining 12 episodes will then air in order on Mondays at 8 p.m. — which at least keeps it away from American Idol.
Oh, and by the way: The New York Daily News claims to have revealed the identity of Gossip Girl — not the voice (that's Kristen Bell) but the actual character who keeps the dishy blog on our favorite Upper East Siders. Look only if you don't mind potentially being spoiled, but I'm just saying, I don't think I buy it.
