In a bid to fill its schedule with more original fare, the network's new president Mark Pedowitz is going on something of a pick-up/renewal spree. Earlier today, the CW ordered to series five new offerings, including Arrow and The Carrie Diaries.
Gossip Girl's sixth season pickup doesn't come as a surprise as there had been conversations about bringing back the Blake Lively-Leighton Meester hourlong for a final round as the actors' contracts expire next year. In January, executive producer Stephanie Savage told reporters that the Gossip Girl writers were leaving the story open at the end of season five. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter later that month, she suggested that next season felt like "an organic ending point."
Nikita, Dixie and Gossip join The Vampire Diaries, 90210 and Supernatural as having earned renewals at the youth-skewing network.
From what it sounds like season 6 will most likely be the last, but lets be happy we got that!!!
