"XOXO Gossip Girl."
Arriving on our screens next year, 14 years after its first iteration, will be the 'Gossip Girl' reboot. And today we've caught wind of the new cast's first thing on their to-do list - sit on the iconic steps of the MET for a photoshoot of course.
Gone are the stars of the original, such as Blake Lively, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford, and Leighton Meester, and replacing them are a group of new and dramatic twenty-somethings.

The 'Gossip Girl' reboot will air on HBO Max in the new year, and stars Kristen Bell who will be making a return as the narrator. The new cast members include pretty unknown actors including Jordan Alexander ('Sacred Lies'), Eli Brown ('Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists'), Thomas Doherty ('High Fidelity'), Tavi Gevinson ('Scream Queens'), and Emily Alyn Lind ('Doctor Sleep').

Josh Schwartz, who co-created the series the first time around with Stephanie Savage, will be back once again with new co-creator of this 2021 iteration, Joshua Safran. Safran was also a producer on the series which ran from 2007 to 2012.
