Spotted: The CW making no plans to leave the Upper East Side anytime soon!

After renewing The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural and 90210 last week, we've learned that Gossip Girl will also be returning to the CW's lineup in the fall.

But will Gossip Girl's sixth season also be its last?

Gossip Girl is coming to an end, y'all!

Yes, Gossip Girl's sixth season will also be its last...and a shortened final season at that! Like One Tree Hill before it, Gossip Girl will wrap up its series with an 11-episode outing.

Not returning for the swan-song season is showrunner Josh Safran, who is leaving to take over NBC's Smash. Safran has been with Gossip Girl since its freshman season in 2007, starting out as a writer/consulting producer before moving up in the ranks to co-executive producer. He was promoted to executive producer last season. 

Gossip Girl closes out its fifth season on Monday, May 14, with "The Return of the Ring." In the season's final hour, Blair (Leighton Meester) will make a choice between Dan (Penn Badgley) and Chuck (Ed Westwick), and Gossip Girl may just cause yet another rift between B and Serena (Blake Lively).

The CW recently renewed Nikita and Hart of Dixie and canceled Secret Circle and Ringer.
