‘Anyone in front of her will fall’

For showrunner Joshua Safran, the return of Michelle Trachtenberg’s Georgina was always on the cards, but he wanted to establish this new Gossip Girl world before adding the iconic character to the mix.

“I always knew that I wanted Michelle back,” Safran said. “Michelle and I have kept in touch over the years and when the first season was ordered, she came up to me and said, ‘When is Georgina coming back?'”

“Georgina works best when she can create the most chaos and destroy the most things, so she wanted to have time to set up all of those things so that when she arrives, she will do the most damage.”

That didn’t stop Safran from dropping a few hints in season 1 about Georgina’s return, most notably introducing her son Milo in season one, which included Zoya (Whitney Peak) coming over to her house.

“Of course we had to ask Michelle’s permission to have all the pictures of her with Elon Musk and with Putin. That was just a little easter egg, but we knew she was coming,” Safran said.

The showrunner also praises Trachtenberg’s ability to put himself back in Georgina’s shoes.

“Once Michelle got on set, Georgina came right back,” Safran said. “Just to see her step back into that role was so extraordinary.”

“Michelle is nothing like Georgina, I mean they couldn’t be further apart. She’s the sweetest. I guess the only area they’re the same is that Michelle is incredibly bright and very fast, and very fast. She’s one of the most ingenious”. people I’ve met, but her wit is kind words, Georgina’s wit is unbelievably petty.”

In terms of what the trajectory of Georgina’s character will be as Gossip Girl continues, Safran stressed before the season premiere that the character is all about “burning things down.”

“Georgina is an anarchist, all she cares about is burning things down,” Safran said. “The funny thing about Georgina is that no matter who gets in her way, whoever stands in front of her is going to fall.”

Just seeing her step back into that role was so extraordinary.
