Gossip Girl: The Complete Fourth Season hits DVD August 23rd, and special features on the collection include two featurettes (Bisoux a Paris! Go Abroad on a Spree in Paris with the Cast and Creative Teams and Exposing Gossip Girl: The Making of 18, The Kids Stay in the Picture), unaired scenes, and a gag reel.

Season four was a return to form, as Katie Cassidy pretty much stole the show as Juliet, a schemer who went to the ends of the Earth to destroy Serena (Blake Lively).  Blair Waldorf‘s (Leighton Meester) continuing love-hate relationship with Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) took a bit of a backseat, as she found a different kind of love with a prince.  Michael Boatman also did solid work during the season as Russell Thorpe, a vindictive businessman who tried to destroy Chuck’s empire.  Unfortunately, Dan “Lonely Boy” Humphrey didn’t have much to do except pine for Serena, although his growing friendship with Blair was the season’s most pleasant surprise (Dan + Blair = Dair, if you didn’t know).
