‘Gossip Girl’ is being rebooted

HBO Max, the new streaming service from WarnerMedia due to launch in 2020, has given a direct-to-series order for a “Gossip Girl” reboot.
The service has given the show an order of 10 one-hour episodes from the original “Gossip Girl” team, including executive producers Joshua Safran, Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz, according to details released by HBO Max.
The series will center on a new generation of New York private school students and “address just how much social media — and the landscape of New York itself — has changed in the intervening years,” the service. (WarnerMedia is the parent company of CNN.)
“Gossip Girl,” based on the book series by Cecily von Ziegesar, ran for six seasons on the CW from 2007-2012.
