The Gossip Girl Cast and Producers Talk About The Show

Right before we said goodbye to the Gossip Girl series during the finale on December 17, 2012, we said goodbye to the cast and crew. Those involved with the beloved series were featured in a special presentation of interviews and flashbacks on the show.

Looking back on the cast memories, special guest stars, fan experiences, and more, viewers were able to get a glimpse as to what life was like for the past five years for those involved. Take a look at some of the highlights:

On the Experience:

“At first we didn’t have a lot of access to New York City, but very quickly, I think people recognized if you were on the show that was a good thing. We always saw the show as a love letter to New York City.” – Josh Schwartz (co-creator)

“[Gossip Girl] was just such a love affair with the city and everything it had to offer, from the fashion, to the food, to the music.” – Blake Lively (Serena van der Woodsen)

“I remember it was such a difference after the show premiered. All of a sudden there were people standing around watching [us film].” – Leighton Meester (Blair Waldorf)

“Parties constantly, and tinted windows, lights, and clothes that were just given to you… I was like, ‘Where am I right now?’” – Penn Badgley (Dan Humphrey)

“We always wanted the show to be able to function like a magazine, so if you wanted to find out what’s the new fashion designer, the trends,  the new song I should be listening to, the place that I should go… you could read a bunch of magazines and figure that out, or you could watch Gossip Girl, and that information could be delivered to you.” – Stephanie Savage (co-creator)

On the Books:

“I was coming off of The O.C. and had very little interest in doing another teen drama. And then I got sent the Gossip Girl book series, and I was like, ‘I might not be ready to leave high school after all.’” - Josh Schwartz

“The books really laid it out well. They’re juicy and salacious and fun. Everything was said with a wink.” – Blake Lively

“When Cecily [von Ziegesar] wrote the book in 2012, Perez Hilton and TMZ didn’t really exist, so she really imagined something.” – Stephanie Savage

On the Fans:

“We have some of the most passionate, vocal fans in the history of television.” – Josh Schwartz

“I get texts from Nami [my grandmother] sometimes saying ‘I don’t like you with that MILF [Diana] anymore. And I’m like, ‘Nami, watch your mouth.’ … Oh I’m sorry, it wasn’t ‘MILF’ — it was ‘cougar.’ Now this is really going to get me in trouble.” – Chace Crawford (Nate Archibald)

On the Future:

“I am going to run down Broadway naked with champagne [to celebrate the end of the series].”- Chace Crawford (Nate Archibald)

“We’re all very excited to see what’s for ourselves and for each other.” – Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass)

“I know that it has changed my life in a lot of ways, but it hasn’t changed me. It’s only made me appreciate everything else in my life that’s still really concrete and the same even more. - Leighton Meester

    I simply wanted to appreciate you once again. I do not know the things that I might have created in the absence of the smart ideas shown by you concerning this theme. It truly was a very horrifying matter in my view, however , observing a specialized form you treated it took me to weep for gladness. I will be grateful for the advice and wish you recognize what a powerful job you are always getting into instructing people today through the use of your webpage. More than likely you’ve never come across any of us.

    Gossip Girl retrata como é a vida da gente na realidade, mostra que é bom ter dinheiro, mas que ele sozinho não trás felicidade, precisamos de amigos e amores para compartilhar! Mostra que os amores não são tão fáceis pra quem tem beleza e grana, o que é difícil, é difícil pra todo mundo, e mostra o que é um amor de verdade: B & C <3

    The very core of your writing while appearing agreeable initially, did not settle perfectly with me personally after some time. Somewhere within the sentences you were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a short while. I however have got a problem with your leaps in logic and you would do well to help fill in all those breaks. If you actually can accomplish that, I would definitely end up being amazed.

    i loved gossip girl. Serena Van Der Woodson, Blair Waldorf, Chuck Bass, Dan Humphrey, Nate Archibald, and Jenny Humphrey changed my life. They made me want to live out this show. Through Blair and Serena’s fights, to Little J and Golden boy’s love tangle with Serena, Dan, and Vanessa. i was even tempted to start a website at my school, to start a exact copy. At the end, they were all bonded together. Even S and Little J. who knew that Lonely Boy could be gossip girl?

    First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Cheers!
