Hey Upper East Siders, your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan's elite is back.
It isn't clear right now which (if any) of the former Gossip Girl stars would be making an appearance in the series.
Gossip Girl ended in 2012 after six seasons on The CW.
However, rather than picking up with the original characters, such as Blair, Serena, and Dan, the show is being developed as a sequel-style reboot which will feature an all-new set of NY private schoolers.
According to WarnerMedia the reboot will "address just how much social media-and the landscape of NY itself-has changed in the intervening years". THR reports that Joshua Safran, who executive produced the latter seasons of the original show, will write and executive produce the new version, as well. While there was talk of a series revival over at The CW earlier this year, this new endeavor will be a spinoff set several years after the events of the original series. We'll have to wait until HBO Max's 2020 launch to find out.
Chace Crawford, who played Nate Archibald, recently discussed the possibility of a Gossip Girl reboot - and why he would "have to" cameo if one did happen.
The 10-episode series will be set eight years after the original, which made stars out of Blake Lively (Serena van der Woodsen), Leighton Meester (Blair Waldorf), Penn Badgely (Dan Humphrey) and Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass). And like the original series before it, the reboot will be based on the series of books by Cecily von Ziegesar.
