Pack a lunch and head to the steps of the Met because Gossip Girl is returning to stir up more drama for the New York elite.
TV Line reports that a reboot of the classic CW series has been ordered to series at HBO Max, WarnerMedia’s new streaming service set to launch next year. The series will consist of 10 hourlong episodes that will “introduce a fresh crop of gorgeous Manhattan private-schoolers to Gossip Girl’s all-seeing eye.”
According to WarnerMedia the reboot will “address just how much social media—and the landscape of New York itself—has changed in the intervening years.”
Before you blast the new Gossip Girl as blasphemy, know that the original series’ creators, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, are returning as executive producers, with OG GG executive producer Joshua Safran set to write and produce.
The original series included a major gay character, Eric van der Woodsen, played by Connor Paolo.
No word yet on whether any of the original cast will make an appearance in the reboot, but we can’t be the only ones dying to know what Blair Waldorf has been up to in the seven years since the original wrapped.
