“Hello, Upper East Siders. Gossip Girl is coming back.”
The show is on its way back to television, this time in a new series for upcoming streaming service HBO Max.
HBO Max, owned by WarnerMedia, announced that it had ordered a new, 10-episode series that will be set eight years after Gossip Girl ended its original run in 2012, and will follow a new generation of private school kids. They added that the new series will explore how much social media and the landscape of New York has changed in recent years.
It is currently unclear whether any of the original stars, including Blake Lively, Penn Badgely, Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester, will return.
Gossip Girl was one of the most popular shows on television, winning 18 Teen Choice awards and inspiring fashion, hairstyles and beauty lines. You know you love me.
Given that Friends will also be shifting from Netflix to HBO Max, where do we sign up?
