‘Gossip Girl’ reboot coming to HBO Max



It’s only been a few years since “Gossip Girl” ended — but it’s already bound for a reboot.

The CW show, which launched the careers of Blake Lively, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford, Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick, has gotten a series order from Warner Media’s upcoming streaming service HBO Max.

It’ll be helmed by the original creator Joashua Safran and producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, who have since gone on to do “Marvel’s Runaways” at Hulu.

The original show, which ran for six seasons between 2007-12, chronicled the lives and scandals of wealthy Manhattan teens. The reboot will be set eight years after the original gossip girl website went dark (because Penn Badgley’s Dan, unveiled as Gossip Girl, went in a more stalker-ish direction on Netflix’s “You.”)

It will follow a new generation of teens introduced to a new kind of surveillance, addressing how social media has impacted this world.

So expect a new Foucault-ian “Gossip Girl” with a fresh new cast. Will there be cameos from any of the original stars, perhaps a peek at Blair Waldorf in her 30s? Time will tell.

Xoxo, Gossip Girl.
