Gossip Girl is multiplying like a little alien beast! It may be spinning off into a new series set in a girl’s boarding school and sources say either Taylor Momsen will be its focus, or writers will introduce a whole new GG character in the fall who would then be written into the new show. Reuters explains the plot in the book series, which may give away the possible plot:

Jenny is a self-esteem-challenged outsider who struggles to fit in. In the books, as the result of a series of public embarrassments (such as appearing in a teen magazine wearing next to nothing), Jenny must repeat ninth grade or find a new school. She elects to enter a boarding school and reinvents herself as a popular girl. Her story is told in a series of six “Gossip” spinoff novels called “The It Girl.” [Reuters]
