A glimpse of Gossip Girl's new season

Season three of hit US TV series Gossip Girl ended on a cliffhanger when the programme's hero Chuck was mugged and shot in Prague.

The finale frustratingly left many questions unanswered: is the arrogant Manhattan aristocrat still alive? Will Jenny return after moving to Hudson to be with her mother? Do Blair and Chuck still have a future? What will Georgina and Dan do about their unborn child?

In the final episode, Blair and Serena jetted off to Paris for the summer after Blair ended her on-off relationship with Chuck.

Season four kicks off in the French capital and is awash with fresh drama, high fashion and several exciting new characters. Keep clicking to see the full gallery of pictures.

This photo is proof that Chuck - Ed Westwick in real life - is still alive and him and Blair, played by Leighton Meester, come together at some point in the new season in a feisty argument
