|Posted by Becca • Comments Off |
Gossip Girl will be silenced for good this December when the CW soap comes to an end after six years of love, lies and debauchery. What does the final 10-episode season hold in store for the UES crew? In the following Q&A, exec producer Stephanie Savage and Sara Goodman drop exclusive intel on the much-anticipated end game — including scoop on “Chair,” “Dair” and the show’s titular rabble rouser.
TVLINE | How does Serena’s new love interest, played by Barry Watson, compare to her previous suitors?
SAVAGE | He’s a grown-up. He’s from Serena’s world, but he’s found his own way. He’s someone with real life experience. He’s patient and very understanding and has a strong sense of humor.
TVLINE | Is she ready for a mature relationship?
SAVAGE | The theme of adulthood is something that we’re really playing with in this last run. We’ve kind of gone back to Nate’s speech from the pilot when he and Chuck were walking in Central Park wondering, “Are we really going to end up being just like our parents.” A lot of our characters are dealing with issues where they’re fully adults now, and that’s definitely true of Serena.
TVLINE | How big a role will Serena and Blair’s friendship play this season?
SAVAGE | Blair and Serena’s friendship is really a spine for this whole season. They’re relationship is the premise for this show. So we’re really focusing a lot on that this year. And certainly the finale will focus on it as well.
GOODMAN | They are very strong in the last two episodes.
