Hello Upper East Siders! Cafebiblioart here, your newly relaunched source of information. Sorry, we could simply not help ourselves over there and had to do something super cringe worthy.
While we might not be quite ready to launch in this new formula, we knew we just had to bring you this piece of information as soon as we heard the news. The teenage cult TV Series Gossip Girl is getting a reboot. Despite the rumours, we did not see that coming. Did you?
Our first reaction was to jump up and down in our brand new office. The people next door were looking at us like we were crazy, but who cares! Gossip Girl is coming back to TV and that is all that matters. For one second, all was good in our world.
This is what we know about the revival.
Gossip Girl got a straight to series order. This means that no pilot is needed before they start shooting the new season.
Yes, we are getting an entire new season and it will consist of 10 hour long episodes.
The TV series will launch on the HBO Max platform which is WarnerBros’ (HBO parent company) own streaming platform. HBO Max is thought to launch in beta later this year, but unfortunately we won’t be getting access to the full platform until next year. This means that Gossip Girl will also launch in 2020 as opposed to 2019. We waited this long so we can definitely wait one more year.
However, here comes the sad news. While the executive producers from the original show are back for this revival, there is no news regarding the cast. As far as it is known, the new Gossip Girl series will have an entirely new cast and a different plot.
The new Gossip Girl series starts “eight years after the original website went dark” and when a “new generation of New York private school teens are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl.” It sounds amazing, doesn’t it? However since the protagonists are teenagers, the chances of us seeing what Blair and Serena are wearing now is kinda slim.
In addition, the new TV Series wishes to tackle what the life of these teenagers looks like under the surveillance of Gossip Girl in a world where technology developed and the use of social media is part of everyday life. Now to us, that is the true selling point of this new series.
So far, this is all we know. Rest assured though, we will keep you updated.
In the meantime, you can watch the original series on Netflix.
How do YOU feel about the revival of Gossip Girl?
