Zión Moreno will appear in the 'Gossip Girl' reboot!

Aside from her breakout acting role in the new Netflix series, Zión will also star in the Gossip Girl reboot. While there has been no description as to the role she will tackle in the reboot, we do know that the show will be set eight years after the original series. 

With the ever-changing times, the reboot will reflect a "new generation of New York private school teens" and "address just how much social media, and the landscape of New York itself, has changed."

"It's just a new look at this particular society in New York, the idea being that society changes constantly," writer Joshua Safran explained to The Hollywood Reporter. "So how has this world changed, how has social media and its effect changed? All of those things allow us to look at the world 12 years on as opposed to just redoing the story."

However, Gossip Girl fans will have to wait until at least 2021 for the reboot. Due to the current coronavirus pandemic (also known as COVID-19), production has been delayed. 

HBO Max exec Kevin Reilly told Vulture: "They hadn’t even started production yet; they were in pre-production and ready to roll." The show has been greenlit for 10 episodes on HBO Max.

Well, we totally can't wait to see Zión star in the new Gossip Girl series. For now, fans should totally check her out in the Netflix show Control Z, now streaming.
