A retrospective, looking back on the series' headline-making moments, will also include sit-downs with cast members and producers.

Producers promised that the identity of the omnipresent blogger Gossip Girl will be revealed by season's end and familiar faces will be dropping by, including Arrow's Katie Cassidy, returning for the show's final episode.

Additionally, the network will also use Gossip Girl's swan song to preview the 1980s-set midseason entry The Carrie Diaries starring AnnaSophia Robb.
