Get ready, Upper East Siders...
A new generation of teens will be attending an elite high school in New York City in the reboot series of Gossip Girl. The HBO Max show will follow present day, eight years after the website went dark, but now, Gossip Girl is back, and these rich teens will quickly find out that every move he or she makes is being watched.
Based on the book by Cecily von Ziegesar, Deadline reported that the series will follow "a similar character dynamic to the original." Additionally, the characters in the series will talk about the OG stars in the new show. "The universe still exists. The characters talk about Serena, Blair, Chuck, Dan," executive producer Joshua Safran told Entertainment Tonight.
However, it has not been confirmed if any of the original cast members will be making an appearance in the 10-episode series.
The writer also explained that the series will be a lot more diverse than the original. “There was not a lot of representation the first time around on the show,” Joshua admitted in an interview at Vulture Festival. "So, this time around the leads are non-white."
He continued: "There’s a lot of queer content on this show. It is very much dealing with the way the world looks now, where wealth and privilege come from, and how you handle that. The thing I can’t say is there is a twist, and that all relates to the twist.”
So, who are the actors that have been cast in the new Gossip Girl reboot?
