Hey Upper East Siders, it was Lonely Boy spotted at the Warner Bros. offices putting in a straight-to-series order for a Gossip Girl revival on HBO Max.
Don’t lie, you read that opening line in the voice of Kristen Bell.
Warner Media has announced that it has placed a straight-to-series order for a 10-episode season of a Gossip Girl revival to run on HBO Max. Before you start thinking this will be the further adventures of Serena van der Woodson and Blair Waldorf, the series will be set eight years after the events of the original series. The new story will follow a new Upper East Side crew that has even more to worry about than one lone blogger airing all of their dirty laundry to the world.
The original Gossip Girl ran on The CW for six seasons and ended in 2012. The series will see a mix of executive producers from the original series as well as new ones including Joshua Safran, Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, Leslie Morgenstein. Gina Girolamo will executive produce for Alloy, and Lis Rowinski will serve as a co-EP on behalf of Fake Empire.
The big question is if any original cast members will appear in the series, but nothing has been announced as of yet. It would be easy enough for them to float in and out of this world and could be things as simple as appearing at a dinner party, to being fully involved in some way. We’ll just have to wait and see what the series ends up doing.
We’ll admit it, we’re Gossip Girl fans around The Nerdy, and this news made us more than a bit happy.
XOXO – Gossip Girl.
