We can hardly believe it, but somehow it’s been FOURTEEN (yep, one four) years since Gossip Girl first hit our screens. The trials and tribulations of Upper East Siders Blair Waldorf, Serena van der Woodsen and co had us hooked and, eight years after the show ended, we’re still missing all the drama.

There is good news for fans of the classic teen drama though as the show is getting a reboot – and it’s going to hit our screens VERY soon. After months of production delays due to the coronavirus pandemic, the brand new Gossip Girl will air on US streaming service HBO Max next month.

While we wait for the much-anticipated reboot, we thought we’d do some digging and find out what our favourite OG Upper East Siders are up to these days.

The Gossip Girl reboot follows a new generation of New York private school teens as they’re introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl.

“The prestige series will address just how much social media – and the landscape of New York itself – has changed in the intervening years.,” screenwriter Joshua Safran told The Hollywood Reporter.

He added, “It's just a new look at this particular society in New York, the idea being that society changes constantly. So how has this world changed, how has social media and its effect changed? All of those things allow us to look at the world 12 years on as opposed to just redoing the story."
