Gossip Girl

gossip girl topic page

The teen drama series Gossip Girl first premiered in 2007 and was based on a novel series by the same name. Narrated by Kristen Bell, the show follows the lives of privileged upper-class teens in NYC — and the omniscient blogger "Gossip Girl," who seems to know everyone's secrets.

There is the "it girl" Serena van der Woodsen, her frenemy Blair Waldorf, and aspiring writer Dan Humphrey, who lives in Brooklyn, along with Chuck Bass, Serena's one-time boyfriend Nate Archibald, and Dan's little sister Jenny Humphrey.

After six seasons, the identity of Gossip Girl was finally revealed (and spoiler alert) it was Dan himself.

In 2021, Gossip Girl was rebooted by HBO Max and starred a cast of new characters in the same setting nearly a decade after the original took place — now with the addition of social media. Kristen Bell also returned as narrator.
