The OG executive producers are BACK!
Rumour has it that Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran are returning as executive producers for the reboot so we can be sure that whatever GG 2.0 has in store, it's going to have the same preppy New York flavour that we're used to.
Kristen Bell is also back
While Kristen hasn't addressed the news herself, Entertainment Weekly confirmed that Bell would be lending her iconic voice (yet again) as everyone's favourite messy b*tch who loves the drama.
'Gossip Girl' is no longer a blog
Here's the thing, Gossip Girl was originally set in the early 2000s when things like Twitter and Instagram were practically non-existent. But in the year 2020, it would be odd to imagine anyone still running a blog.
So how is the Gossip Girl reboot going to address this culture shift?
GG is now going to be on Twitter!
Gossip Girl is going to get some diversity
While the OG series was very white and heterosexual focused (and no, we do not count that threesome episode with Hilary Duff) the reboot will be focusing on issues outside of the petty squabbles of the elite, such as the queer community and racial minorities.
Safran told Vuture: "It is very much dealing with the way the world looks now, where wealth and privilege come from, and how you handle that. The thing I can’t say is there is a twist, and that all relates to the twist."
We can't wait for Gossip Girl to get the Gen Z treatment!
Chace Crawford (AKA Nate Archibald) approves of the reboot
"Look at a show like Euphoria — they’re redefining what a high school drama or what kids go through these days means. I’m sure this is going to be a fresh take and Josh and Stephanie are incredible," Chase told EW.
"They’re going to make it great. There’s still a demand for it — people are always asking if I’d go back and do more. Hats off to them. I think it’s a good idea."
