Blake Lively and Penn Badgley Dish on Gossip Girl

The cats out of the bag. We already know there's going to be a 'Gossip Girl' Spin-off, which will be set before the soap's teen characters were born. But what will the new show entail?

Speaking about the Gossip Girl spin-off, Blake Lively Lively told Hollyscoop: "I don't know too much about it, but I do know that our season finale, or the second to last episode doubles as their pilot."

"The second to last episode will be told in flashback and if it gets a good response it will become a show next year," Blake told Hollyscoop at DirectTV 3rd Annual Celebrity Beach Bowl at Progress Energy Park in St Petersburg Florida.

Blake's on and off set beau Penn Badgley chimed in on the interview talking about the hit show and how his life has changed since he took on the role as Dan Humphrey.

"You adapt to it," Penn said in regards to fame and publicity. "It comes with the job, unfortunately, or fortunately for better or for worse...It's really only 5% negative and 95% positive. I don't really worry about it too much."

In regards to why his role is the most relatable he said, "He's the moral center of the show, so I suppose he is the most relatable in that sense. I think he's a little too uptight sometimes and needs to loosen up. I can identify with him in some sense and some not."
