Gossip Girl finally returns after a long hiatus in an episode paying tribute to Oscar's Best Picture winner The Hurt Locker.

Hurt Locket: New Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl returns in its 9 pm spot with a launch of ten original episodes in a row.

On the March 8 episode of Gossip Girl, Nate and Serena explore the depths of their friendship as Blair is thinking Chuck has issues dismissing the woman he saw at his father's grave.

If that's not enough drama for these New Yorkers, Jenny goes with Damien to a State Dinner (tough life, yes?) and does not realize the underlying reason why she's with him: There's a drug deal he needs her help with.

Vanessa and Dan move forward (he recently confessed his love to her) as Rufus comes back home from a skiing wedding in a major attempt to avoid Lily.

Gossip Girl returns to primetime after a three-month hiatus and we have to say it's been too long!

Here in The Big Apple, it is easy to see that Gossip Girl is back in action as the cast has been taking over New York City. Cast members were spotted all week across the Gossip Girl set at various locales in New York City.

Blake Lively, better known as character Serena van der Woodson, shot several scenes and then took a break to hang out with her little dog and grab a snack. Penn Badgley, Chase Crawford, Michelle Trachtenberg and Leighton Meester were also on set shooting more episodes.
