What We Know About The “Gossip Girl” Reboot So Far

This is for you, the one that sees something about “Gossip Girl” and already remembers the iconic voice saying “XOXO, Gossip Girl”. Who doesn’t miss it? The rumors that the series would have a reboot started in July 2019. And we are here to confirm that yes, it is true! Warner Bros has confirmed a kind of reboot of the series, which will be geared towards their streaming service, HBO Max.

Despite confirmation, details of the production are still scarce and have let the fans of the show confused in regards of what is about to come. But we already have some information that has been released. You can check everything that is already known about the reboot so far, below.

Before we start, it is worth remembering that this is not necessarily a reboot, but a continuation. The series will be on the same timeline as the original production, but events are dated between 12 and 13 years after the plot of “Gossip Girl”, according to executive producer Joshua Safran, in an interview for the Vulture Festival.

The reboot will have 10 episodes, but this time there will more than only one Gossip Girl, the character that tormented everyone in the original series. Instead, the new plot is based on the idea that everyone is a Gossip Girl, considering the progress of social media and the possibility of gossiping more quickly.

The story will also focus on a traditional New York private school, where most students are from the Manhattan elite, and have to deal with gossip and scandals in their personal lives.
