Gossip Girl reboot gets a straight-to-series order at HBO Max

Gossip Girl spinoff

‘Gossip Girl’ Spinoff Series in the Works at HBO Max

The dramatic and glamorous look into the lives of wealthy Manhattanites left our TV screens back in 2012 - and we've got to say, we definitely miss it.

As reported by Variety, the new show will be part of WarnerMedia's offering on its upcoming streaming service called HBO Max.

A description of the series reads: "Eight years after the original website went dark, a new generation of NY private school teens are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl".

It's only been a few years since "Gossip Girl" ended - but it's already bound for a reboot.

Actress Taylor Momsen, actor Penn Badgley, actresses Blake Lively, and Leighton Meester speak for the television show "Gossip Girl" during the CW portion of the Television Critics Association Press Tour at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on July 20, 2007 in Beverly Hills, California. It's unclear if any of the original cast will be returning.

Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, both studios that produced the original, are back on board for this new go-round.

The original creative team of Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage will return to executive producer the series while Josh Safran (Smash), who wrote and produced on the original series, will showrun this latest version. Gina Girolamo will executive produce for Alloy, and Lis Rowinski will serve as a co-EP on behalf of Fake Empire.

HBO Max will launch in the spring of 2020. The CW series will be reworked into a spinoff series.

Other highly anticipated programs that will be available on HBO Max this fall include the DC Entertainment series Batwoman starring Ruby Rose, and Riverdale spinoff Katy Keene.
