The CW Plans to Repeat Gossip Girl From the Beginning

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.

I never got to watch this show, With working the way i do. Really do want to catch up on it, but , for me, I think that renting the dvd would be better. I have got some really, really good reviews on it though so far. honestly, wish the gilmore girls never went off the air. I missed the last episodes. Zine,

Really, why renew it and replay it? It's a big dissappointment of a show. It had so much potential. Too bad it's horrible.

LuciLu - I hope so too! I imagine there'd be some disagreements, I mean, girls disagree, and having to play characters who were fighting probably didn't make things any easier ;)

i really hope the rumors they claim in that article about blake and leighton not getting along arent true! i would like to think they are all friends on and off screen. :)

did they ever reveal who GG was in the books?

I think having Eric as "Gossip Girl" is kind of stupid, and doesn't entirely fit with things..... and anyone who's read the books knows that it could never have been Eric - as he was older and away at college. Anyway, I really hope they do sign a second season of the show. It's awesome! Otherwise it'll become one of those cult classics like My So-Called Life.

libre — they're out of episodes completed before the strike. That's why it's going to start rerunning now - no more new ones to show!

Loooooooooove gossip girl - does anyone know how many episodes they managed to do before the writer's strike? We've got to be close to the limit.

I hope they don't reveal GG, because they never did in the books ... I liked the mystery behind it.

I am so glad they are re-running it. I missed the first three episodes, but once I caught a full one I am so hooked! I really hope they renew it. I need more! As for Gossip Girl, I agree with you Buzz. I don't belive it is him. That doesn't make sense. :-p

I didn't realize who it was. But how is it Eric?? It's a girl's voice that's talking! And why would he use those words, like 'xoxo gossip girl'? What guy would do that?

ok I read it, and I dont think I buy that that is who it GG is.. but I really do hope they renew it!

Did people not realize that's who GG was? Really? They told us in the first episode, before the show even started! When the CW starts rerunning the series watch the first episode: listen to the voiceover intro and see who is on screen when it says "and who am I? I'll never tell" - it's the same person as mentioned in that article - sitting on a bed with a computer. I was always under the assumption that WE were supposed to know, but the CHARACTERS weren't.

I hope they do renew it. I like the show and although yeah, it glamourizes bad behavior and all-- so what? How many great shows in history were looked down upon(not that I'm saying Gossip Girl is a great piece of work, it's just the principle of the thing) and are now cult classics? It's a fun show, just like Beverly Hills 901210 was in its heyday.
