Chuck Bass and Nate Archibald back together again?! It could happen — at least, if Ed Westwick has his way.
When E! News caught up with Westwick to talk about his new ABC show, Wicked City, the actor admitted he would totally be game for a mini-Gossip Girl reunion with former co-star Chace Crawford, who also has a new show on the network.
“We should do a crossover episode,” Westwick tells E! News. “It’s great, we’re great friends. They’re all like family to me. I’m very, very happy for [Chace].”
The idea popped into Westwick’s head after he ran into Crawford at the 2015 Summer TCA Press Tour, E! News reports. Like Westwick, Crawford was on hand to promote his own new show, ABC’s Blood and Oil.
It’s been three years since fans said goodbye to the CW hit show about New York’s trendiest Upper East Siders. Looking forward, Westwick also mused on how playing the devious Chuck Bass on Gossip Girl helped prepare him for his new role, an L.A. serial killer, on Wicked City.
“He was a young man who knew how to manipulate people, could be very charming and use that to his advantage a lot,” Westwick says of Bass. “And yet you could say that Kent, my character on Wicked City, is charming and uses that to manipulate people, albeit to a different end.”
So while we hold our breath for Westwick and Crawford’s on-screen reunion, you can catch Westwick as ruthless killer Kent on Wicked City this fall on ABC.
Wicked City premieres October 27 on ABC.
