HBO Max has announced that they are bringing back the iconic television show, Gossip Girl.

The drama will pick up eight years after the original series ended and it is unsure if any of the original cast members of the show will return.

The show originally aired on The CW from 2007 to 2012 and is based on the book series of the same name.


The original plan for Gossip Girl was a film starring Lindsay Lohan produced by Amy Sherman-Palladino. This failed to surface.

Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz (who are returning as executive producers) took over the project to create the series on The CW.

Gossip Girl isn’t the only series that is being rebooted. Beverly Hills and 90210 will also return with the original cast on Fox next month.

Gossip Girl tells the story of a new generation of New York private school teens who are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl. The show addresses just how much social media, and the landscape of the city itself, has changed in the intervening years.
