Gossip Girl actors Penn Badgley and Chace Crawford reunited to reminisce about their days on the hit series and discuss that finale, admitting that it “made no sense”.

Same, tbh.

If you still don’t know how the iconic show ended now… what rock have you been living under and where is it? We'd love to know.

Anyway, Badgley and Crawford just gave fans a glimpse of series reunion we're all waiting for during a video call for Variety’s Actors on Actors series.

The actors, who played Dan Humphrey and Nate Archibald on the series from 2007 to 2012, basically told fans what most have already concluded for the past eight years.

And that’s that Dan being Gossip Girl is as realistic as pigs flying.

Discussing his current role as a very creepy Joe Goldberg on Netflix’s You, Badgley said:

What’s interesting about Joe — it is almost like an odd continuation of Dan.

He added:

At the end of Gossip Girl the show, whatever your reaction is on whether it was smart to do that or not, that he’s Gossip Girl — it didn’t really line up with the character of Dan. Right?

Badgley also said: “I ended up being Gossip Girl — even though we can debate about whether or not that makes sense.”

No kidding. Although, one can argue that the events of this year have not line up to what we thought 2020 would be.

The good thing is that social media users found relief in their admission.

After that interview, others have already been left dreaming of a remake.

A lone tweeter had their say on the much-debated about the topic.

And yet, the ending still makes zero sense to fans.

Like most, these fans are just happy the former cast members agreed to talk to each other for our viewing pleasure

The pair also talked about re-watching the series. Badgley revealed he had revisited it with his now-wife before they got married, but Crawford hasn't watched it again, saying:

I don’t like really watching myself that much in general. So to go back and open that time capsule, I think there would be some nostalgic value. We’re doing that when you come to LA. We’ll have a drink.

But Penn had a great idea:

Dude, if we live-tweet a viewing of any episode of Gossip Girl, people would love that.

He’s not wrong. Twitter would most definitely treat it as a trip if they live-tweeted the very last episode.

Imagine re-visiting that horror in 2020?
