It’s been more than a decade since this iconic series hit our screens — can you believe that? And now, word is that Gossip Girl is returning, thanks to HBO Max. That’s right; your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite will be back thanks to Warner Media’s upcoming streaming service. But don’t expect this to focus on the lives of our favourite Upper East Siders in their 30s because this remake will be a completely re-imagined version. Turns out, Chace Crawford was right in his predictions: this 10-episode Gossip Girl reboot would seem to be turning our attention to a different set of teens.

The original’s showrunner and writer Joshua Safran will be part of the production. Like the original series, this one will also be based on a book written by Cecily von Ziegesar. Since the series first ran back in 2007 when social media was just taking off, the Gossip Girl reboot is expected to be quite different, seeing how social media and the whole of New York has changed since.
