gossip girl season5 1 cw VIDEO and PICTURES: 'Gossip Girl' season five: The crew hits HollywoodAnother season of “Gossip Girl,” another season of glitz, glamor and gorgeous people.

But it appears there’s going to be a bit of a location change as the gang will spend part of the season five in Los Angeles, following Serena’s (Blake Lively) lead from the end of last season.

New to the show for a multi-episode arc is the perfectly cast Elizabeth Hurley as Diana Payne. Her character is described as a “sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with.”

While the Southern California sun seems to work well for most of the cast, Chuck (Ed Westwick) couldn’t look more out of place if he tried.

Gossip Girl returns to The CW on Sept. 26 at 8 p.m. ET.

Here’s the video and then some pictures just for fun.
