Supersizing Season 2 [including Georgina!!!!]

Second season will be 24 episodes long to make up for hours lost to the writers strike; Michelle Trachtenberg may see role increase.


Like good parents looking over their brood, networks probably shouldn't be playing favorites--but it's obvious that the CW has a favorite child.


The network has been nothing but gung ho with its favorite new show, Gossip Girl. The teen drama has received the lion's share of publicity from the CW (including a controversial ad campaign), was the first of its new shows to receive a full-season pickup (we're still waiting on word for Reaper and Aliens in America), and has executives buzzing about its potential.


It's no surprise then that the CW wants to put as much Gossip Girl on the air as it can, and it's doing just that. When the CW announces its upcoming schedule next week in the Big Apple, it will also reveal that Gossip Girl's second season will run 24 episodes, according to E! Online.


It may not be much of an extension--most full seasons are 22 episodes--but it is more, and that's what counts to the show's hardcore fans. The extra episodes are said to be making up for the few that were lost this season because of the writers strike.


In other season-two news, The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Michelle Trachtenberg (who plays current recurring character Georgina Sparks) will sign on as a regular next season, and that the second season will kick off in the Hamptons.


More episodes and more Georgina... Are you all getting enough Gossip Girl?

SPOILER MENTIONED HERE

--------------Well I read Blair helps and sends Bitch Goergina to boot camp, if she is a member of the cast, she be reformed or looking for payback, Im hping for the latter, hope shes reformed, becuase damn, Gergina in 2 episodes stirres alot of shit up, and dan and serena on a blink of a break up, wounder how much damage she do if she becomes a full member.

I hate the way Jenny was behaving! She was being such a bitch, even to Dan and her father!! Hopefully, she'll come back to her senses now!!

I can't stand the character Georgina either. It's too bad because she takes a lot away from the show. I think the show has enough going on with Jenny's new behavior.

Georgina is a real bitch. I love her. She is so evil and I like a real bitch on a show or in movie. She makes Gossip Girl really good. But of course the rest of the cast does it good as well.

I hate G too, damn them, for bringing her back full time next season. Hopefully Blair will handle her ass. The past few episodes have changed my opinion of Blair, and Jenny still love Nate and Chuck. Love GG. Keep up the good work CW

I like G She has something that GG needed they were becoming some what like the same story and it was become an old thing. She is spicing things up and best of making other peoples life a complete chaos. BTW she also got people that couldn't stand being around all back together. AHHH how cute.
