Variety reports that The CW may spinoff an episode of Gossip Girl.

If this happens, the CW could save money developing a pilot while at the same time seeing how viewers reacted to "a companion show."

Should this happen, the spinoff would most probably follow one of the nine characters on the show.

The CW put the Gossip Girl spinoff on the fast track once they decided not to make the The Graysons TV show.
