My dream of a 52-episode Gossip Girl season is moving closer to reality.
Two weeks after extending GG’s season by two episodes (from 22 to 24), The CW has informed exec producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage that it wants to tack on one more for a grand total of 25 episodes (and counting).
And this time, The CW is spreading the love around.
Sources also confirm to me exclusively that the net has ordered two additional episodes of One Tree Hill and 90210, extending both shows’ seasons to 24 episodes apiece.
Tree Hill has been a surprise success story for The CW. Despite my best efforts to destroy it, the six-year-old soap has been on a ratings roll, posting double-digit gains over last season and consistently building on its Gossip lead in. Not too shabby.
And 90210, while off its initial highs, has become a solid (if not spectacular) performer among its target audience of
men and women age 18-49 who work at Entertainment Weekly young females.
