OMFG! Gossip Girl Getting a Spinoff?

Hey, Upper East Siders, are you ready for a double dose of gossip? There's a story floating around that the producers of Gossip Girl are planning a spinoff of the CW series.

(Update: Josh Schwartz has said it's not true, but in the same story, a CW boss says they'd consider it if the second season does well. Hmm . . . )

According to the Hollywood Reporter, one likely scenario is that Jenny Humphrey (played by Taylor Momsen) would move on and become the lead character of her own series — much like what happened in the Gossip Girl books, when Jenny's character got her own book series. The producers are also considering introducing a new character in the Fall who would be spun off — and whose path would mirror that of Jenny from the books, which involves getting publicly humiliated in a series of scandals, leaving Constance Billard, and entering a boarding school in upstate New York where she reinvents herself as the queen bee.

The producers are reportedly interested in the project whether the CW wants it or not — and, if the network isn't interested, the series could land at another channel. Well, as we've learned from the Queen B vs. Little J battle, there's nothing like a little competition to keep things interesting among socialites, no?

On the other hand, there's one teensy problem with this plan — which is that the Gossip Girl ratings still aren't good. Could the show's fan base support a spinoff? Would you watch a show all about Little J?

except the books were mostly interesting because jenny was BRUNETTE with CURLY HAIR and BIG gazungas. Her unique looks trying to fit in with the plastic supermodel world really made the books.

i would! i read all the spinoff books, and they were just as interesting as gossip girl, with fresh drama.

I think GG would do better if it stuck closer to the book series story line. Jenny isn't annoying in the books - especially not in the IT Girl Series (which i heart more than the GG series honestly). If they spin, they should totally take Jenny.

Jenny is my LEAST favorite character, and none of my friends who watch Gossip Girl like her. I like Chuck better than Jenny! She just comes off as such a *witch*(starts with b lol) and just an annoying troublemaker. Vanessa would be our second-least favorite character. I don't think there needs to be a spinoff.

I love Gossip Girl, but I just don't think they should split the characters up. They all work interesting together, but as before mentioned it wouldn't be the same on a spinoff.

She's kind of annoying on the show, but I wouldn't be surprised if they gave her a spin off just like in the books. I think it could be good and as long as they don't have her trying to be Blair (Jenny never got quite as bitchy in the books) I think it could be a good show.

I really don´t like when her voice goes up at the end of a sentence when she´s upset! Freaks me out... On the other hand, I could see something built around the reinvention plot line, only if she improves her acting skills.

I think I'll believe this when I see it. Weren't there rumours that Josh Schwartz had considered making an OC spin off following Marissa's little sister (whose name I can't remember) at boarding school. That ended being a load of rumours, so we'll see...

I would watch even though Jenny gets on my nerves.

Yeah, they really didn't do the Jenny character much justice on the show. It would be hard to watch a spin-off about her. I can't believe that Gossip Girl still doesn't have good ratings. People talk about that show everywhere!

Like you said, there isn't enough of a fan base with Gossip Girl to merit a spin off. Grey's Anatomy had monster rating for a couple years before they considered a spin off. Right now there seems to be more buzz than viewers.

Not many spin-offs turn out be succesfull. Frasier did make it though. I don't think I would like to see a spin-off from GG. I also hate how Kate Walsh left Grey's Anatomy to have a spin-off. I loved Addison, but big part of my liking her was due to the plots she had with others. It almost seems like the writers can't seem to keep together the plots. Hmph.

No way; I couldn't watch a series about Jenny.

absolutely not. I'm annoyed by both: the actress [awful acting!] and the character.

I didn't realize Gossip Girl was doing well enough in ratings to deserve a spin off...

I agree with Papaver. She got to be REALLY annoying and spoiled and I couldn't stand watching her after awhile.
Papaver Papaver 9 years
Absolutely not. She is annoying and whiny. I would like to see a spinoff about Chuck and Blair! :>
