Season four kicks off in the City of Lights Paris! Blair has spent a fabulous summer in Paris without realizing Chuck, her former love, has been shot. Yet as much as Blair tries to distract herself from the pain Chuck caused her by sleeping with Jenny Humphrey, his mysterious appearance in Paris with a beautiful new woman will force both of them to face what happened. Serena has been enjoying a Parisian summer of love with boys, Blair and Balenciaga as she tries to avoid the inevitable decision about which of her two longtime beaus, Dan or Nate, she should return to. Meanwhile, back on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Nate meets an intriguing girl, Juliet, who helps him realize that his summer of sexual conquests was his way of avoiding his unresolved feelings for Serena. Plus, Dan's baby mama drama continues with Georgina and the van der Woodsen apartment is buzzing with activity as a "Fashion's Night Out" event is planned.

Living out a real-life fairytale in Paris, Blair is pursued by a handsome young man, Louis (guest star HUGO BECKER), whom Blair suspects is a member of Monaco's royal family.

Meanwhile, Chuck Bass is as we've never seen him before, adjusting to a fresh start in Paris with a mysterious new woman, Eva (recurring guest star CLÉMENCE POÉSY), at his side. And Juliet (recurring guest star KATIE CASSIDY) offers to help Nate win Serena back, suggesting that by reigniting the romance between Dan and Vanessa, it may remove Dan from the Dan-Serena-Nate love triangle.

Critic Reviews for Gossip Girl Season 4

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

We hit several unexpected turns as the new season starts.

Sep 13, 2010 | Full Review…

It's a lot of fun.

Sep 13, 2010 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

My eyes have never beheld a sight as sweet as the gorgeously lavish garments that were on tonight's Gossip Girl. It was like coming home again - that is, if home is a place with baby daddies, man whores, new identities, and playful linguistic tricks.

Sep 19, 2018 | Full Review…

The first of two episodes filmed in Paris. They are... um... tres bien?

Sep 13, 2010 | Full Review…

If the premiere is any indication, we have a fabulous season of "Gossip Girl" ahead of us. (What made this episode even better? It was Jenny-free! Dieu merci!)

Audience Reviews for Gossip Girl: Season 4

  • Nov 14, 2020
    In season 4, the series begins to make it's first stumbles in the script.
  • Jul 29, 2020
    With more time to spend on its best characters Gossip Girl is a guilty pleasure that can't be beat.
  • Jul 13, 2020
    great start so far and katie cassisdy makes a great villian its a shame it was only for the first half of the season
  • Feb 13, 2016
    Yeah, Gossip Girl is a plodding mess from about episode 2 or 3. And by Season 4 we know what we're in for. But toward the end of this season we get some surprising - nearly mature?? - decisions and finally seem to be getting new directions for some of the stagnant cast. Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick are on point with their comical performances that somehow have a whole bunch of humanity. Good soundtrack.

    The fourth season is fun to watch but is not as awesome as it could have been.
