The end of summer means the beginning of fall. That being said, the new seasons of two of my favorite TV shows start next week!
Leading the week off on Monday September 13 is the fourth season of Gossip Girl. Last season left us with some enormous cliffhangers. One of the main characters was shot, (I'm not saying who just in case any of you haven't seen it yet... haha), Serena and Blair go to Paris, Dan finds himself in a very weird predicament, Jenny is sent away, and much more. Woowee -- I'm starting to sweat just thinking about how it ended lol. Anyways, It'll be very nice to have some closure. I've been following the show since it started in 2007 and every season adds more and more drama that keeps me coming back. Make sure to tune in to The CW next Monday night and enjoy the ride!
One Tree Hill premiere's the following night. This show has been my obsession ever since I started watching it while we had some off time of tour two summers ago. I'd wake up every morning and watch two episodes on SOAPnet. I got so into the show that I went to Best Buy and ended up purchasing all the seasons on DVD. This show has caused many nights of staying up until the sun rose.
Last spring, Sing It Loud got to play a show at UNC-Wilmington which happens to be in the town that One Tree Hill is filmed. Being the fan I am, I had these sweet girls bring me around to the locations and take pictures for me. It was quite the experience, I was like a little kid in a candy store -- except way more intense. The day included me smashing my nose on a metal bar while I was running to this stair case that leads up to one of the locations, taking many pictures, and me playing ding dong ditch on the main characters fictional houses haha.
I look forward to this new season very much. It'll be awesome to see where it takes the characters Nathan (James Lafferty), Haley (Bethany Galeotti), Brooke (Sophia Bush), Julian (Austin Nichols), Clay (Rob Buckley), and Quinn (Shanel VanSaten). Make sure to watch Tuesday, September 14! Have a rad weekend!
