Leighton Meester had to dye her naturally blonde hair brunette merely to audition for the role of Blair Waldorf.

The name of Rufus' band, "Lincoln Hawk", is also the name of Sylvester Stallone's character in the movie Over the Top (1987). That movie is mentioned several times as being a cult-classic in "The O.C." (2003), the previous show from Josh Schwartz, the creator of this series.

When the show was criticized by the Parent Television Council for being "Mind-blowingly inappropriate" and "Every parent's nightmare," they used those phrases in their promotional posters.

The last song to be played in the series was "You've got the love", by Florence and the Machine. The band was a recurring one during the last seasons, a circumstance that made them gain popularity.
