Last week we started hear rumblings that Gossip Girl would abandon NYC for Paris in Season Four. Luckily a press release from the CW has confirmed they will be filming in Paris…but only for a couple weeks.
Here’s the full press release regarding the on location shoot in Paris:
The CW’s pop culture phenom Gossip Girl is leaving the Upper East Side behind and jetting off to Paris to kick off Season 4 in the City of Light. Series stars Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick will be filming on location in Paris in July for the first two episodes of the season.
In the season four premiere, Gossip Girl will find a radiant Serena van der Woodsen (Lively) and Blair Waldorf (Meester) enjoying a grand and romantic summer in Paris. However, Serena and Blair will be in for a few big OMG surprises when a friend from home mysteriously appears.
“Paris has always been the ultimate extension of our Gossip Girl world – the home of high fashion, Michelin star restaurants, chic night clubs, and Blair’s favorite sweet (macaroons, of course!),” says Gossip Girl executive producer Stephanie Savage.
We’re thrilled to be able to share with our fans that this fall Gossip Girl is going to Paris. We hope they’ll come along with Blair, Serena and Chuck for the first two episodes of Season Four.
