Michelle Trachtenberg: Returning to Gossip Girl For Major Story Arc!

by at . Comments

Brace yourselves, Upper East Siders, for the return of Georgina Sparks.

The perennial pot-stirrer portrayed by Michelle Trachtenberg is headed back to Gossip Girl for a major story arc in Season Five, according to executive producer Joshua Safran, and it will be timed perfectly:

Michelle's first episode back will be the show's 100th, in early 2012.

A Sparks Sighting

“Her first episode back is our 100th episode,” Safran reveals of the show’s century mark installment, which is set to air early next year. “Her arc is unlike anything that she has done before on the show."

"Of course, she still is Georgina and all that implies, it’s just taking that in a new direction.”

By our count, the November 21 episode brings us to 95 in all, so Georgina's latest return is still a ways off. Not to say we aren't anticipating it eagerly. What can we expect from her this time around?

When last seen in the Season 4 finale, the now-married mother of one came back to N.Y. City pretty much exclusively to cause some trouble, and found a surprise kindred spirit in UES poser Charlie.

Georgina is one of the few who knows Charlie's big secret, which should up the tension.

We'll pass along more about the 100th episode and Ms. Sparks' latest dramatic turn on the CW drama as soon as we know more. For now, hit the comments below and welcome her back (we think)!

You guys, Ausiello said that the 100th episode will be about the Blouis wedding although the plot will be equally distributed between Blair and Serena because they are the main core of the show. And that the kiss in the Sleep no More episode will be followed by a slap (I can't post links, TV Fanatic will erase my comment, but it's in the TV line site, the Ask Ausiello section).

No, you're not alone. I think Georgina is one of the most overrated GG characters.
Bring back Carter, then I'll be excited.
Georgina post S1 is just all hype.
What is it people see in this character??!! Eh.

I love Georgina as a character so I'm looking forward to this!

I guess I am the only one who dislikes Georgina. It could be the writing but every appearance after the first season she has been pointless and added nothing to the plot. Also Michelle Trachtenberg does a bad job (which is weird because she was amazing as Dawn on Buffy) as Georgina, she talks very stilted. What was the point of her showing up last season? Or the baby thing still confounds me. I hate when they have a guest star just get people all stirred up and nothing happens.

I agree! Carter Baizen (a.k.a the only guy with whom Serena had chemistry with IMO) NEEDS to come back. He was justvthe right amount of wicked sexy guy we need in this show.
Also very happy that Georgina is back. She's classic Gossip Girl but I hope they gind a way to use her more creatively this time.
Also like Juliet so I won't mind seeing her return!

YAY for Georgina RETURNING!
I still think she should've been promoted instead of that annoying twat Charlie/Ivy. Now if Juliet and Georgie could tag team together I'd be COMPLETE!

Tell Jesus the bitch is back!
