On-screen the romance between Serena van der Woodsen and Dan Humphrey came to an end.
And now it seems that life is imitating art as Gossip Girl actors Blake Lively and Penn Badgely called time on their relationship.
The pair, both 23, started dating when they met on set of the hit US show in 2007. Despite denying their relationship to begin with, in 2008 they went public.
Although they will continue to work together, it seems there are no hard feelings.
One source from the Gossip Girl set said of the break-up: "It didn't seem like there was anything off at all and no-one said anything."
