Gossip Girl Spin-Off Starring Lily & Rufus?

Gossip Girl Spin-Off Starring Lily & Rufus?

The Gossip Girl spin-off will reportedly center around Serena’s mom, Lily, and Dan’s dad, Rufus, currently played by Kelly Rutherford and Matthew Settle.

“The show will focus on the early romance between Lily and Rufus,” an insider tells Star. “It begins when they first meet, during a time when Rufus and his band are at the height of their career. The show will follow the high society and rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle in New York.”

None of the original cast members will be leaving the show as, the insiders adds, “two new actors will be hired to play the young Lily and Rufus. Producers are planning to introduce the new couple during a flashback scene in an upcoming episode of Gossip Girl.”

WILL YOU WATCH a spin-off show based on the lives on Lily and Rufus?

UPDATE: Gossip Girl executive producers and Warner Bros. Television tell that there is no approved concept and/or confirmation of a Gossip Girl spin-off at this time.

    It might have some really great, cheesy 80′s outfits! Though Vanessa wears a lot of those anyway…
    Will it be a bit dirtier? I mean, she was kind of a groupie…
    It could be good- it could run right through to the baby storyline and explain what the hell happened!

  • Holly

    YAY! Seems good

  • agatha

    great idea i love this couple!!!

  • honey_12686


    I’d love to see that!!!

    As we know RL can’t be endgame but we can still love them…

  • lubie

    definetly no!
    they are so boring…

  • Ashley

    That’s stupid. I seriously don’t want to watch old people fall in love. That makes me sick. What a lame idea. Just release the actress who play’s jenny she is horrible!

  • Daniiq8

    I’ll watch it. I think it’ll be cute! Seeing how they fell in love and what’s up with there new kid and where he is?! And since new actors are going to play them its not gonna change anything on Gossip Girl so thats good too. Oh and is it me or is this season of Gossip Girl THE BEST!!

  • nanah

    sure, they’re the whole reason i watch GG.

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    that’s cool. they’re a cute couple. i like them.

  • Julia

    They’re so boring!!!!!!

  • Mowgli

    actually, that sounds like a pretty good idea…

  • ac

    thats actually a really smart idea. theyre jumping the shark, so to speak, in terms of show comparison. the timescale will have its own interesting dimension. i’d love to work in that wardrobe department!

  • katie

    hmm it seems interesting. good idea.

  • ~m~

    i’d probably watch it
    it would depend on who they cast though

  • emjay

    To be honest their story line is the main reason i watch the show- no i don’t think they are too old to be interesting – with that said an entire late 80s spin off show. i am not sure…

  • llollipop0

    Love it

  • mary

    who on earth would watch that?!

  • fdsa

    that’s just…………….

  • Amanda

    Sure! This couple is GREAT!

  • Kristine

    Some say they are boring, and old.. Well guess what!? It says it will be during their younger years AND during the hight of Rufus’ band (I highly doubt that a young guy in a rock band can be major lameass person, and not to mention I bet Lily was a major hottie back then, cuz lets face it the woman is gorgeous!), which makes it pretty clear that they will get a more dramatic story line.. And we will gett the whole story on the baby storyline they are going with on GG for RL. I think its a great idea. To see how the two of them ended up in this mess of a relationship.

  • Asheee!

    Hell yeah! I’m totally gonna watch it!

  • jen

    hell yesssss! My fav couple! would be really interesting to see how their story came to be, definitely will be watching =)

  • Vivi

    That’s a great idea! I’ll definitely watch it, they’re probably my fav couple of the show….

  • Alice

    yeeeeeeah! I absolutely love Lily and Rufus……great couple and actors!

  • cecile

    that’s great !! they’re my fav couple and the only reason i watch the show as well !!

  • andtheycallmecrazy

    OH i will soooo watch that. awesome. Good spin off.

  • iola

    i don’t know. i think it’s going to be a total failure… but we’ll see.
    ill check it out though.

  • Ann

    I am so sick of Lily and Rufus on GG, but if the actors that play their younger selves are any good, then maybe I’ll watch it. A Chuck Bass spin-off would have been the best though!

  • gisele

    HECK YES!!! what a great decision!!! i’m so glad they didn’t ruin the show by taking any of the characters off!!!!! two new characters will play them!!!!

    i can not get enough gg in my life!!!!

  • gisele

    they can’t take chuck off the real gg!!! anyways the show is basically only about chuck right now, which is amazing!!!

  • nic cu

    it depends all upon whether or not the new people casted have the right look . . . Rufus looks and plays the part and Lilly is just so beautiful. There is a high bar set, so we’ll see.

  • xtina

    sorry, cant help it, just one word: EWW.

    honestly? i’d rather watch serena-blair-nate-chuck-dan before serena went away to boarding school.

  • annie

    that’s a great idea but i rather the spin-off be about chuck or blair.

  • mayra

    Yeah….why not it sounds interesting, it would be pretty cool to see how they got in this mess and the story about the baby!!!

  • shro


  • NANE
