In all the speculation about which Gossip Girl character could lead a spinoff, I assumed it would be one of the youngsters and not the adults. But what if it was about the adults as youngsters? That's the new buzz according to Star, which reports from its sources that the spin-off will focus on Rufus and Lily as teenagers in love. (Update: Josh Schwartz has reportedly debunked this rumor, but just in case, read on.)
Says the magazine:
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.
The producers once thought about making webisodes about young Rufus and Lily, but they decided to focus on Dorota instead. Giving them a spinoff would obviously be an even bigger showcase.
Now, if this somehow does turn out to be true, it could lead to some good stories. (I can imagine some awesome young Grandma CeCe smackdowns), especially because we now know their past was even more torrid than we once thought. I'm still holding out a little hope for a Serena-in-college spin-off, though I could see some potential in Lily and Rufus: The Early Years. Even if it's not true now, is this an idea worth pursuing?
