Blake Lively, Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick were both spotted in Venice Beach this week filming episodes for next season. The trio shot scenes together on a yacht before Blake and Chace broke off to film a scene together outside of a marijuana dispensary.

No word how long or for how many episodes the crew will be out here for, but next season will longer than the last four. The CW announced earlier this week that they're extending the episode order from 22 to 24.

Season 5 kicks off September 26.
