Both Momsen (as little sister Jenny Humphrey), 17, and Szohr (as Brooklynite Vanessa Abrams), 26, had been with the show since its fall 2007 debut; TVLine reports that they have been invited to make future guest-star appearances.

The remaining Gossip Girl gang, however, is intact, with Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley, Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford all confirmed to return; actress Kaylee DeFer is also joining the permanent cast as Charlie Rhodes, cousin to Serena van der Woodsen (Lively).

Last November, Momsen -- who has kept busy with her band Pretty Reckless -- began an "indefinite hiatus" from the show amid numerous headlines about her shocking wardrobe and foul-mouthed interviews.
