Dan Humphrey’s tell-all book is on its way to getting published, courtesy of Vanessa, but will it ruin everything for Dan? Can his UES friends ever forgive him? Josh Safran reveals a few hints!

When we last saw Dan Humphrey‘s novel, it was in the hands of a bitter Vanessa Abrams as she sold the “anonymous” work to a publisher. The novel rears its ugly head in the season premiere of Gossip Girl and already begins affecting one of Dan’s female friends whom he has made out with in the past.

Executive producer Josh Safran spoke about Dan’s novel at a Q&A session on Sept. 21. “Dan’s book is a season-long arc,” he explained. “That doesn’t mean it’s not going to be published until the end of the year.”

So if it does get published, or even if it doesn’t but his friends get a hold of parts of it, what will they think? “Everyone does have a reaction and it’s not necessarily the reaction that Dan expects them to have,” confessed Josh. “It’s also not the reaction that they expect to have.”

Josh added that they “would love” to actually write Dan’s book for GG fans but that Dan’s writing is “very good” and took him six years to write, and they don’t have time at the moment to do it justice.

He also revealed that Dan will be focusing a lot on his book and made it seem like Dan’s emphasis would be less on his love life and more on the scandal associated with his novel going public.

Another scoop Josh gave out? Nate and Dan might be having bromantic relationship troubles soon! “That friendship is going to have some complications thrown into play very soon,” Josh teased.

Uh-oh! Will it have to do with the book? How do you think everyone will react? Sound off below!
