Gossip Girl Is Coming Back

Have you been missing your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite?

No need for wallowing anymore, because seven years after it went off the air “Gossip Girl” is coming to HBO Max.

WarnerMedia’s new streaming service has ordered 10 episodes of the rebooted series and is bringing fans back to the inner circles of the Upper East Side elite.

The reboot will reunite many executive producers from the original, including Joshua Safran, Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, Leslie Morgenstein.

New Generation

Rumors have been circulating for a while about a “Gosip Girl” reunion, but it was announced that the new series will not focus on the adventures of our favourite frenemies Serena van der woodsen and Blair Waldorf.

The new series is set eight years after the original show’s finale and will follow a new generation of New York private school teens who are introduced to the social surveillance of the Gossip Girl site.

The show will concentrate on exploring how much social media and the landscape of New York itself has changed in the intervening years.

Big Shoes to Fill

The original “Gossip Girl” ended after six seasons on the CW in 2012, and it was based on the YA novel series written by Cecily von Zeigesar, centering around the lives of a group of teens from the Manhattan elite.

The combination of fashion and drama on the Upper East Side is what helped this show become one of the most popular on TV at the time, launching Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick and others to stardom.

Although the date of the release is still unknown, HBO Max is set to launch in 2020, giving fans plenty of time to re-watch the original series before they jump into a new Gossip Girl world.
