Barry Watson will be hanging around the Upper East Side during their final days and (fingers crossed) he may be Serena’s saving grace!

Gossip Girl will embark on its final journey come October — and it looks like our favorite Constance Billard alum will have to deal with newcomers on the steps of the Met!

Our sister site TVLine.com reports that 7th Heaven heartthrob Barry Watson has been cast to play the role of Serena’s (Blake Lively) love interest — young entrepreneur, Steven Spence.

No details about his role have been revealed, but we’re hoping he stops Serena from having a complete meltdown.

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited Barry is joining to cast? Weigh in below!
