Jack Bass' Return to Gossip Girl Confirmed

at . Comments

Desmond Harrington will reprise his role as Chuck's Uncle Jack on Gossip Girl later this season.

The Dexter cast member made a brief appearance of sorts in Gossip Girl's fall finale when Jack’s voice was heard on the other end of a phone call with Diana (Elizabeth Hurley), revealing a connection to her for the first time.

This spring, Bart's brother will return in person, and this won't be a one-off cameo either.

Jack Bass is Back Baby

“He’ll be back for the last third of the season,” executive producer Safran reveals, and fans will likely enjoy seeing Jack and his nephew on the same side. “When Jack returns, he and Chuck are on good terms."

"This time around their story is more of a fun story than an antagonistic story. It’s really twisty and comic. And there might even be some secrets that Jack will help Chuck to uncover.”

Gossip Girl returns from its holiday hiatus next Monday with "The End of the Affair." The following week, "Father and the Bride" airs, followed by the 100th episode on January 30, entitled "G.G."

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

Chuck: I'm sorry for losing my temper the night you told me Louis proposed to you. I'm sorry for not waiting longer at the Empire State Building. I'm sorry for treating you like property. I'm sorry I didn't tell you I loved you when I knew I did. Most of all I'm sorry I gave up on us when you never did.
Blair: Thank you.
