If you are a TV enthusiast, get ready for some exciting news.
Gossip Girl, the millennial favorite TV series which went live for the first time in 2007 and ended in 2012, starring Leighton Meester and Blake Lively, is about to get a spinoff.
According to Variety, the spinoff will be produced by WarnerMedia and will be broadcasted on the new streaming service, HBO Max.
However, it hasn’t yet been confirmed if Lively or other stars from the original series will be a part of it, though there have long been rumors about a reunion of Gossip Girl stars.
The original show revolved around a bunch of elite-class Manhattan teens who were followed, watched and teased by a ruthless blogger called Gossip Girl.
Based on the YA novels by author Cecily von Ziegesar, the hit series was on air for six seasons.
The show was famous for two things; its extensive fashion content and the scandalous antics of its characters.
Gossip Girl proved to be a turning point for Lively’s Hollywood career, who played Serena van der Woodsen – a popular socialite.
Other stars who rose to fame through the show include Penn Badgley, Leighton Meester, Chace Crawford, Taylor Momsen, and Ed Westwick.
According to Variety, WarnerMedia is working on a straight-to-series order of 10 episodes for the upcoming spinoff, with each episode being one hour long.
The new series, which still has to get a title, will be aired 8 years after the finale of the original series came out.
Featuring a group of NYC teens studying in private schools, the spinoff aims to discover the changes the social media and the city have undergone in the last decade.
Other eagerly awaited programs from HBO Max this fall include the Batwoman series from DC Entertainment, reportedly starring Ruby Rose, and Katy Keene – a spinoff of teen show Riverdale.
