The Gossip Girl series is getting a reboot. The show ended in 2012 but it is still widely watched. Gossip Girl is also available on Netflix as well. The show is gaining new generation fans every day. The show has become iconic similar to Pretty Little Liars and The vampire diaries. Gossip Girls had big names like Black Lively, Gossip Girl is the highlight of her career.
However, the show was ahead of his time. 2000s outfits and cellular phones, we have come so far. It is 2020 now and rebooting the show with a fresh cast and new faces is a good idea. HBO already has a hit series Euphoria. Euphoria also won an Emmy as well. However, that is why HBO is all excited about the upcoming project, and fans are excited as well.
You can see the new photoshoot of the upcoming show. The pictures were released on Tuesday and took over the whole internet. Fans are excited about the new journey. However, it is not confirmed yet if we will see the older cast members of the show or not. But, the show has a great new cast as well. It is hard to imagine the show without Blake and Serena, but HBO has promised that the show would be as iconic as the older one. The cast can be seen sitting on the stairs of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the previous cast members also used to sit on the exact location as well.
Thomas Doherty, Whitney Peak, Eli Brown, Jordan Alexander, Savannah Lee Smith, Evan Mock, and Zión Moreno all are the new faces of the show. Kristen Bell will be reprising her role in narrating the show. It was one of the best things about the show. Kristen bell is on-board to narrate the upcoming show as well. The original creator’s Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are also attached to the new show. According to them
“Kristen bell will always be the voice of Gossip Girl”, so it means that Kristen Bell is definitely going to be in the reboot of the show.
Gossip Girl Reboot Release Date
The most important question is the release date. The show was meant to be released this fall, but due to the pandemic, they had to stop filming. The release date of the show is pushed to 2021. However, it is not confirmed what is the exact release date of the show.
More diverse CHARACTERS
Just like all the shows of 2000, Gossip girl is also guilty of lesser diverse characters. Joshua Safranthe writer and the producer of the show is all excited for the upcoming show. According to him, there are going to be people of color in the show as well and it is going to be a less “White centered show”.
He said this in an interview;
“There was not a lot of representation on the show at that time. Even when I went to a private school in New York in the ’90s, the school didn’t necessarily reflect what was on Gossip Girl. So this time around the leads is nonwhite. It is very much dealing with the way the world looks now, where wealth and privilege come from, and how you handle that, before teasing one other major way the reboot will differ from the original series. The thing I can’t say is there is a twist, and that all relates to the twist.”
