We’ve been speculating and, not gonna lie, panicking our way to this moment where we would finally have an answer regarding the fate of Gossip Girl Season 6... which, it’s been confirmed, is officially happening! 

News of the sixth and final season —

Recordscratch.

That’s right: News of the sixth and final season was confirmed by TV Line’s Michael Ausiello Friday, May 4. Not that we expected this love affair to last forever, as we’ve known all along that the cast members were only contractually obligated to do six seasons.

And, while The CW had until next Friday to decide, we’re relieved not to have this Harry Winston-sized renewal rock weighing down on us throughout Monday night’s Season 5 finale.

Additional details about Season 6:
- it will be a shortened season, 10-11 episodes, TV Line reports
- Co-Executive Producer Sara Goodman will be Stephanie Savage’s new Josh Safran, who will be on Smash duty next season

That is all the newest news we know for now, but check back for more on everything Season 6! Or catch up on all the Season 6 chatter we’ve covered up until this joyous point HERE!
