Hello Upper East Siders, we have some news for you.
As you may have heard by now, Gossip Girl is back. And no, sadly not with Blair, Serena or Chuck.
Instead, a reboot of the hit 00’s show will be launching this year with a new generation of Manhattan’s young elite.
In the age of Instagram and influencers, what better timing?
So, from the plot line to the brand new cast, here is everything you need to know about the much anticipated Gossip Girl reboot.
Remember that one time Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were on Gossip Girl? Post continues after video.
What will the Gossip Girl reboot be about?
Executive producer and writer from the original series, Joshua Safran, has confirmed that the reboot will indeed take place at Constance Billard School for Girls. However, the reboot will take place approximately 12 to 13 years after the original series ended.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Safran opened up about the plot of the reboot.
“A new generation of New York private school teens are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl. The prestige series will address just how much social media – and the landscape of New York itself – has changed in the intervening years,” .
If you think back to the original series, the technology was a little… outdated compared to now. Now, Safran wants the new series to focus on the impact of social media and technology on the lives of the affluent teens of New York City’s elite.
A huge hint into what the new reboot will look like is the promo poster, which was shared last month.
