The actress allegedly wants to leave her role as Serena van der Woodsen in the hit drama because she's tired of behind-the-scenes fights among castmembers.
A source told heat magazine: “Blake has asked producers to kill off her character.
“She’s tired of working on the show. It was great at the beginning, but she’s started to get bored of her storylines and all the petty fights on set.
“Nearly all the cast members have had some kind of bust-up. Besides the fact that she gets to work with her boyfriend, Blake wants to leave.”

Lively has been dating co-star Penn Badgley for over two years now.
Though producers haven't agreed to Blake’s request just yet, the actress has reportedly pitched a number of possible exit storylines to them. The source added: “Serena’s been the show’s most dramatic character and Blake thinks she deserves a fitting exit.
“Execs aren’t convinced they’ll let her go but ideas have been thrown around. Suicide is one, though it’s likely to be an accident.”
The Green Lantern star feels she has outgrown the show and is now setting her sights to the future. The insider explained: “She’s grown up and though she’s grateful to Gossip Girl for giving her the status she’s achieved, it doesn’t fit her future plans.”
