Ahead of the premiere of part two of the first season, HBO Max has renewed the Gossip Girl reboot series for a second season. The first six episodes of HBO Max’s Gossip Girl premiered in July and became one of the most popular HBO Max originals. The reboot didn’t get much recognition from the critics but the audience’s love has proved that the reboot is as entertaining as the original series.
The Gossip Girl reboot series follows a new group of rich teens living on the Upper East Side and their drama that is embedded into their lives for being rich and hot. In the HBO Max series, there is not a question of who is Gossip Girl because it was answered in the first episode and the titular title was taken by a young generation of Constance Billard teachers who are revealing the rich kid’s secrets through Instagram.
Joshua Safran is serving as the showrunner on HBO Max’s Gossip Girl series and he was also a writer and an executive producer on the original series. The reboot stars Jordan Alexander, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Tavi Gevinson, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Zion Moreno, Whitney Peak, Savannah Lee Smith, Todd Almond, Adam Chanler-Berat, Johnathan Fernandez, and Jason Gotay. Kristen Bell is reprising her role as the voice of Gossip Girl.
The showrunner of the series, Joshua Safran said in an interview with Collider, that he has worked out a two-season arc, with an idea that Gossip Girl could be extended to four-season. He also said that each season is a semester, which gives them two years to have all the kids graduate.
Gossip Girl’s part two will premiere on HBO Max in November 2021.
