The news shouldn't really come as a shock to anyone, but for the sake of argument, let's just throw a SPOILER ALERT warning right here to warn those who might not want to know who will be missing from the cast next season.
Now that we've taken care of that business…
It has been confirmed that Taylor Momsen and Jessica Szohr will NOT be returning to Gossip Girl as series regulars next year.
BIG surprise, right? It's not like Taylor has been gone for months because of touring with her band, The Pretty Reckless or anything. And, it's not like last week, Jessica's character, Vanessa, set up some redunkulous storyline that will take her away from the Upper East Side for months. (We think she's going to study boilermaking in the Adirondacks or something.)
However, if there are
three some of you who are a bit disappointed about the news, rest assured that the girls may be back. The door is open for either or both to return as guest stars on the show. Meanwhile, newbie Kaylee DeFer, who plays Serena's creeper cousin, has been promoted to series regular status and will return for another juicy season along with the other fabulous five.
Let's hope next season brings as much DRAMA as this one. Speaking of which, what did U think of last night's episode? Is the season ending the way U thought it would?
