'Gossip Girl' spin-off reports 'premature,' according to creator

Posted on

Despite a report today from the Hollywood Reporter, a Gossip Girl spin-off, potentially featuring Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen), is not a sure thing, according to the show’s creator, Josh Schwartz. “The books do have a spin-off, but we have no plans right now for a TV spin-off,” Schwartz tells EW.com  “Everyone is focused on making season 2 as good as possible — that’s our goal right now.  Not saying never, just very premature.”

Gossip Girl, which returns for its sophomore season this fall, is the 195th-ranked show on television with 2.3 million viewers. It’s the CW’s ninth-ranked show, behind Supernatural, One Tree Hill, and Smallville.
