Spotted: A Possible Spin-Off Featuring Little Jenny Humphrey

Posted by thelanetrain on June 11, 2008

Everyone’s favorite teen drama Gossip Girl may be getting a much anticipated spin-off, and only after one juicy season! According to The Hollywood Reporter, producers are strongly considering a spin-off series based upon author Cecily von Ziegesar’s other acclaimed series, The It Girl. As the article further explains:

Producers are hoping to expand the popular CW show by either giving co-star Taylor Momsen her own series or by introducing a new character next season who is later spun off.

Awww, little J gets her own series? No doubt Queen B will be upset that she still has to share the spotlight with on-again off-again BFF S. In the books, Jenny Humphrey leaves the privileged world of Upper East Side private schools to escape…to the privileged world of boarding schools located far, but not too far from the city. Either way, the CW is poised to milk this enterprise for as long as it possibly can.

And when can we expect this spin-off to get spun? Not for awhile, apparently. In a related article via Gawker, show creator Josh Schwartz says that the show has no current plans for a spin-off because “Everyone is focused on making season 2 as good as possible,” but that they have not thrown out the idea entirely. Hmmm…sounds like this is one story we’ll be tracking as it plays out. XOXO
