Even though "Gossip Girl" ended in 2012, fans have continued to discuss the series over the years, including who ultimately turned out to be the voice behind the blog. Now, a new revelation has come to light regarding who was truly intended to be Gossip Girl.

According to BuzzFeed, executive producer Joshua Safran recently spoke at Vulture Festival and revealed that Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) was not initially the person he had in mind as the show's narrator. Instead, Safran says, the writers had once envisioned Eric van der Woodsen (Connor Paolo) or Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford) to be revealed in the series finale.

"I like to joke that Dan was Gossip Girl because I had left the show by then. Dan was not my intended Gossip Girl, so honestly you'd have to ask someone else," Safran said, adding that he "had his heart set" on both Eric and Nate at various times throughout the creative process.

Continuing, he said, "We worked hard to kind of lay in tiny seeds about it being Eric, and then the NY Post wrote an article saying that Gossip Girl was Eric so we were like, 'We gotta scratch that.'" Eventually, one of the writers realized that Nate had never sent Gossip Girl a tip through the end of Season 5, so they decided to change course.

Even though the initial outing of the franchise left Safran seemingly unfulfilled due to its ultimate conclusion, there is a chance for redemption as he is slated to return for the upcoming reboot. According to Yahoo, the new episodes will reportedly be set 12-13 years after the finale and will follow high schoolers who are attending Constance Billard Academy, Blair and Serena's alma mater. At this time, a premiere date has not been announced.
