With news that Gossip Girl’s writing team is hard at work on the season finale that’s NOT set to be a series finale, we’ve been gettin’ a little nervous about the show’s fate...

Ratings for Season 5 are lower than ever before ― seriously, people, what gives? “Father and the Bride” hit a series low! ― and a sixth season just doesn’t feel super secure at this point.

But at the press screening of this Monday’s landmark 100th ep, “G.G.,” executive producer Stephanie Savage was hard at work putting some of that concern to rest…sorta. “We’re not writing a series finale this year,” she told those in attendance, Ace Showbiz reports. “We’ve checked in with our bosses to make sure we’re not shooting ourselves in the foot.”

Instead, she echoed sentiment expressed by stars Ed Westwick (Chuck) and Penn Badgley (Dan), who point to Season 6 as the proper ending point. “The actors’ contracts expire at the end of next season,” she said, “so that feels like probably an organize ending point.”

Organic schmorganic, give us some HARD FACTS, woman!! (Sorry, we’re so stressed!)

Warner Bros. TV president Peter Roth, who was also on hand, agrees with producers’ – and our! – sentiments, but gives a much more daunting quote, saying only, “I certainly hope we get one more season.”

Gulp. Guess we’ll be resting, like, half easy now...
