Even though “Gossip Girl” is about to air what will be their final season, there are still some new faces checking in — and this one has a major connection to one of the most-popular dramas of all time.
In news that was first posted by Variety, Andrea Gabriel — who was best known as Sayid’s star-crossed lover Nadia on “Lost” — has been cast to play an important role of a Dubai businesswoman on season 6 of the CW series. There’s not really much else known about her character just yet, though we anticipate her being around in some capacity beyond just the workplace. Is she a new love interest for Nate? We wouldn’t put it past the show to travel down a road they have already plenty of times before.
Although “Gossip Girl” is going to see its run shortened this year, you can still expect there to be plenty of loose ends tied up over the course of its swan song. Are Blair and Chuck finally going to be happy? What happens to Dan during all of this? Are we ever going to see Taylor Momsen again? There are plenty of questions worth asking beyond these (including just how involved Serena is going to get in a certain gossip business moving forward), and hopefully there will be some much-needed answers coming our way soon.
“Gossip Girl” is set to premiere the final season on Monday, October 8 at a new time in 9:00 p.m. Eastern following the season premiere of “90210.” If you want to see more of The CW’s upcoming fall schedule, be sure to check out our feature article.
