The hit show “Gossip Girl” is getting a reboot and is set to air on WarnerMedia’s new streaming service.
Gossip Girls all around the world will be able to watch their favorite drama series once again, as it will be getting rebooted for HBO Max, WarnerMedia’s new streaming platform.
For now, the reboot will include 10 episodes and will feature an entirely new cast of Manhattan’s rich and prestigious teens. The new story will take place eight years after the initial generation, in which the new group is introduced to the infamous Gossip Girl, who went dead in the last series. Look for the series to “address just how much social media — and the landscape of New York itself — has changed in the intervening years,” according to E! Online.
The original series creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage will be coming back as executive producers. Joshua Safran, an original executive producer, is executive producing and writing the reboot. However, at this time there is no word on whether any of the original cast will be involved, which included Blake Lively, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford, Leighton Meester, Ed Westwick, and Kristen Bell as the voice of Gossip Girl.
Gossip Girl initially aired on The CW for six seasons from 2007 to 2012.
