'Gossip Girl' is a TV series about a group of privileged teens and an anonymous blogger named Gossip Girl who loves exposing everyone's secrets. The series aired from 2007 to 2012 on CW channel.

Set in New York's Upper East Side, 'Gossip Girl' followed the lives of Serena Van Der Woodsen, her best friend Blair Waldorf, and her other friends and enemies through the many ups and downs of their (very) privileged lives.
