Hey everyone! What do we have here? Looks like Gossip Girl will be pulling a “back to the future” type of move with this new idea for a show they have in place. It seems that The CW has announced they will be creating a prequel to all the drama that we have come to know and love with a seemingly coming of age story based on the life of Lily van der Woodsen! From what we already know she led a very scandalous life (not to mention, a tad promiscuous…but who doesn’t love that in a show!?) and there promises to be juicy storylines along the way as she eventually becomes Serena and Eric van der Woodsen’s mother. The show will follow Lily’s life as a wild and troubled teen growing up in L.A. during the 1980’s. The Spinoff will be created by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage who are also the creators of GG and The O.C. I’m interested to see what the cast will be decked out in, as well as all the drama Lily got herself into back in the day (especially what led to her child with Rufus Humphrey!) I’m just hoping that it won’t be cheesey and predictable and end up falling flat on it’s face! The CW is set to air this episode in place of an *actual* Gossip Girl episode (I swear it better be good! Coming in between Gossip Girl and I…just kidding =)…slightly) calling it the “backdoor pilot” on May 11th.
What do all of you think about this game plan of theirs? Are you interested in the past life of Lily van der Woodsen that much to watch a show based on her youth?
If so, tune in and check it out! I just might…
-Hoping it won’t disappoint!
