A Gossip Girl spin-off has been confirmed. The CW show will go back in time and change locales, revolving around a younger version of Uptown mom Lily van der Woodsen during her formative years as a wild teenager living in 1980s Los Angeles. The character will be known by her pre-married name, Lily Rhodes. The current character is portrayed by Kelly Rutherford. No casting details about who will play the younger Lily have been revealed. Neither has a name for the show.
The spin-off will air on May 11 as an episode of Gossip Girl. It will follow Lily through a variety of trials and tribulations as she moves in with her black sheep sister after an argument with their parents. She is a fish out of water, living in the Valley and going to public school, which is the opposite of her prior posh upbringing. Most of the series' action will take place on the Sunset Strip during the glam rock years.
