As you may have heard Warner Media is lining up a rebooted series of Gossip Girl earmarked for its new streaming service HBO Max due out in 2020.
The reboot is set to consist of 10 episodes and will see the show’s creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage returning to produce the series. It’s not known who’s starring or more importantly who are returning. Kristen Bell has teased she may or may not be returning.
The show may be leaving Netflix as soon as October 2019. The show’s contract currently renews every October on the 8th.
