As far as Kristin has heard, Michelle Trachtenberg has not been asked to return for season 2.
"[Gossip Girl creator Josh Schwartz] has told everyone that everyone is coming back and that it's going to be like a crazy, wild cast of a million people," Kristin reported Trachtenberg as saying. "So I'd love to, I think it'd be great fun. It's a character I've just thoroughly enjoyed...and pretty sexy."
We ended last season of Gossip Girl with all the main characters ostensibly swapping romantic partners. Dan (Penn Badgley) and Serena (Blake Lively) broke up, not in small part due to Georgie's meddling. Serena turned her attention toward Nate (Chace Crawford), while Dan and Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) seemed to get cozy in Brooklyn. Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Blair (Leighton Meester) seemed to be headed for a summer of coupled bliss in Tuscany, but each turned their attention toward new interests.
The question is, what is going to happen to each of these couples come fall?
Well, according to Kristin, the future is not looking good for Dan and Serena. In season 2, these two erstwhile lovebirds will be anything but happily in love. As for Chuck and Blair? Well, fans of this naughty duo can shout for joy (or celebrate by destroying a nemesis or two), for Kristin hears that they will actually become "the couple" of the show very soon. How very Cruel Intentions!
Nate will have a lady in his life as well who will cause him much angst, but it won't be Serena or Blair. Dan will spend the summer working for a Norman Mailer-esque character.
According to Kristin's inside sources at the CW, there may also be some shakeups in the network. CW president Dawn Ostroff is reportedly looking for a new job. Thankfully, this will not affect our beloved Gossip Girl at all.
