Get ready Upper East Side fans! There is a discussion happening with the creators to bring Gossip Girl back to your TV screens.
The popular show ended in 2012 with millions of fans around the world hooked on the lives of Serena, Blair, Chuck, Dan, and Nate. The rich and famous Upper East Side kids aching for some privacy while being hunted down by the mysterious Gossip Girl.
The CW President Mark Pedowitz said at the TV Critics’ Association press tour on Thursday that a “discussion” is happening regarding a reboot of Gossip Girl. He added that he does not “know if we’re there yet”.
He added, “I don’t know what it would be” but he did say it would be contingent on the involvement of the original executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, saying, “‘Cause you don’t want to do anything without them.”
This question was last posed to Schwartz and Savage at the 2016’s ATX TV Festival, and at the time they said they had not thought about reboots at all. Schwartz said, “We haven’t really explored some of those conversations. Maybe, I don’t know. We haven’t really thought about it.”
Schwartz also said at the time that since the Internet has completely changed. Even more so, since his comments in 2016 – a reboot based on Instagram influencers and social media gossip can make a lot of sense and fit right in. He said, “The world has become Gossip Girl now. … Now literally everyone is Gossip Girl.”
The show starred Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick, and Penn Badgley. Badgley is now the star of Netflix’s You. Lively has since acted in a number of films such as 2018’s A Simple Favor and 2015’s Age of Adeline.
Gossip Girl started airing in 2007.
