Michelle Trachtenberg has landed a multiepisode arc on the CW’s freshman drama “Gossip Girl,” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Trachtenberg will play Georgina Sparks, a character who appears in the novels on which the series is based. Georgina rolls into Manhattan from rehab, shaking up and torturing the life of Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively).

Mischa Barton was rumored to have been up for the role.

The arc will air for the May sweep.
