There's chatter about a Gossip Girl spin off! Already!
The new show would be set at an all-girls school and would star Jenny Humphrey (played by Taylor Momsen) or a new character.
The Hollywood Reportersays that regardless of which actor is used, the story would likely draw on the arc of Jenny's character in the GG book series for inspiration.
In the books, Humphrey is a self-esteem challenged outsider who struggles to fit in. A series of public embarrassments (such as appearing in a teen magazine wearing next to nothing) results in Humphrey having to either repeat ninth grade or find a new school. She elects to enter a boarding school and reinvents herself as a popular girl. Her story is told in a series of six GG spinoff novels called The It Girl.
We never read the books but from what we're told, TV Jenny is very different from book Jenny.
So, would a book-based show for TV Jenny work?
Plus, we heart the bitch-off between Jenny and Blair in GG. We wouldn't that to go away!
