Gossip Girl Spoilers: News About Serena -- Her New Love Interest and Her Friendship with Blair

Serena is getting a new boy toy in Gossip Girl season 6 that will be portrayed by 7th Heaven star, Barry Watson. Details about his character that will surely heat things up on the UES is now revealed by the show's executive producers, Sara Goodman and Stephanie Savage. TV Line shared the exciting details to us!

How does Serena’s new love interest, played by Barry Watson, compare to her previous suitors?

  • SAVAGE | He’s a grown-up. He’s from Serena’s world, but he’s found his own way. He’s someone with real life experience. He’s patient and very understanding and has a strong sense of humor.

Is she ready for a mature relationship?

  • SAVAGE | The theme of adulthood is something that we’re really playing with in this last run. We’ve kind of gone back to Nate’s speech from the pilot when he and Chuck were walking in Central Park wondering, “Are we really going to end up being just like our parents.” A lot of our characters are dealing with issues where they’re fully adults now, and that’s definitely true of Serena.

The Q&A also sighted Serena's friendship with her bestfriend, Blair Waldorf. Last season, the two buddies weren't exactly on the same page as they were dealing with their own personal relationships. That's why in season 6, we definitely hope for a Serena and Blair reunion! Do the producers think the same? Check out what they say more on the TV Line interview:

How big a role will Serena and Blair’s friendship play this season?

  • SAVAGE | Blair and Serena’s friendship is really a spine for this whole season. They’re relationship is the premise for this show. So we’re really focusing a lot on that this year. And certainly the finale will focus on it as well.
  • GOODMAN | They are very strong in the last two episodes.
