Hello Upper East Siders! If you’re anything like this writer, chances are you’ve been thinking about the Gossip Girl reboot nearly every day since we first learned the beloved show was coming back last year. Maybe you’re more of a Friends person, but if you just can’t get enough information about the grand return of Manhattan’s society teens, you have come to the right place.
A lot of developments have happened in regards to the Gossip Girl reboot, but even so, there’s so much to learn. Will original characters like Blair Waldorf, Serena Van Der Woodsen, and Chuck Bass return in any capacity? How will the show adapt its high-society drama from the blogger era to Gen Z? New details are coming out almost as fast as juicy blog posts did on the original show, and we’ll be keeping this post updated so you can learn all about the new Gossip Girl in one place. Read on to learn all about the cast, what the plot might look like, and how the Gossip Girl reboot will reference the iconic original while keeping it fresh. You know you love me. XOXO
We still don’t have a premiere date for the Gossip Girl reboot, but we do know it’s a major part of the new HBO Max streaming service, which launches in May 2020. IMDB claims the show starts some time this year as well, but that doesn’t seem to be a guarantee as casting is still underway and current social distancing measures have put pretty much every production process on hold. We would be excited to see a fall premiere date, but we’ll have to wait and see.
With Gossip Girl being such an iconic show, the bar is high for a reboot. If you were worried about how it might look, rest assured that original creators Josh Schwarts and Stephanie Savage are executive producing the reboot, and Joshua Safran, an original writer and producer, is in charge of writing the new episodes. This means wherever the story goes, it comes from the minds of those who made Gossip Girl a hit in the first place, so hopefully everything will feel right.
