7 Things From the Original ‘Gossip Girl’ We Hope to See in the Reboot
It’s hard to believe it’s been almost nine years since we last saw the impossibly glamorous lifestyles, tangled relationships and intense drama of the Upper East Side elite in Gossip Girl. Thankfully, fans will get a chance to dive back in when the sequel/reboot to the CW original premieres on HBO Max next month.
While the new show will feature a completely different cast of characters, it will still take place in the same uber-rich universe with the potential for familiar faces to return. A lot has changed since Gossip Girl‘s 2012 exit, and we’re dying to see how this update shakes up the formula given the huge leaps made by social media and the transformation New York City itself has undergone.
That said, GG 2.0 needs to retain some of the qualities that made the original an instant obsession. Below, we’ve listed seven of ’em.
