After Eric, Another ‘Gossip Guy’ Could Have Been ‘Gossip Girl’

The original Gossip Girl TV series remains one of the best teen drama shows of all time. The show made stars out of young performers like Penn Badgley, Blake Lively, Chace Crawford, and Leighton Meester, and captivated the imaginations of viewers all around the world. Gossip Girl ran on TV for six seasons before going off the air in December 2012. While many fans praised the series in general, the finale caused a great deal of discussion and controversy within the fan base — especially after the big reveal. As show creators have since revealed, however, the original plan was never to make Dan the infamous “Gossip Girl” at all.
