Hey Upper-East-Siders, Gossip Girl is coming back in 2021

If you're a Gossip Girl lover and have rewatched the series countless times, then you're in luck. HBO officially announced a Gossip Girl reboot and has begun filming in New York on the infamous steps of the Met.

Gossip Girl originally followed a group of wealthy, privileged teenagers on the upper-east side of Manhattan. The teens are the topic of a mysterious blogger, “Gossip Girl,” who spills all their dirty secrets throughout the series. The show is filled with love, lust, and mystery. I don't expect anything less from the reboot.


The same-but-different show will be set eight years after the finale of the original series, as new members of the Manhattan private school start their journey under the watchful eye of Gossip Girl.


The series will be set in the same world, but will reflect how New York City has changed over the years, along with the people in it.


The new Gossip Girl will have many similarities to the original, but there are some obvious changes that come with a new cast of upper-east-siders.


Kristen Bell, who voiced Gossip Girl, is the only returning cast member from the original series. HBO is introducing a brand new cast, many of whom you’ll recognize from some fan-favorites such as Twilight Zone, Scream Queens, and Doctor Sleep. The cast includes: Emily Alyn Lind, Whitney Peak, Eli Brown, Jonathan Fernandez, Jason Gotay, Jordan Alexander, Adam Chanler-Berat, Thomas Doherty, Tavi Gevinson and Zión Moreno.
