UPDATE, 5/11: It's official! Gossip Girl is returning for a sixth season! More details here.


As of Friday, May 4, The CW has now officially made a handful of early pickups for their 2012 fall season — and Gossip Girl has not yet made the cut!

The network announced this week that they’ve signed up for another season of The Vampire Diaries, 90210, and Supernatural, which still leaves a whole lot of shows in limbo as they approach their scheduled season finales in the coming weeks! Rumors are also circulating that the CW has made a likely commitment to superhero-themed newbie Arrow for fall, which means somebody currently on the roster is getting the boot!

Gossip Girl has joined the unenviable ranks of shows seemingly on the bubble at the network — counting itself among the lower-rated Nikita and Hart of Dixie — but we’ve been hearing for months from producers that they aren’t intending the fifth season to be the last (which would, you know, make the decision for the show NOT to return all the more harsh…).

What’s really going to happen!? Only time will tell, but our money’s on that rumored shortened sixth season, which would allow fans to see the show to a proper conclusion and keep ‘em loyal to the network.

If not, it’ll be one heck of a rollercoaster to wrap all of the storylines up in the next two eps — and we’ve got some ideas on how it could all go down
