A Gossip Girl reboot has all but been confirmed by Blake Lively who will return as Serena. Sebastian Stan has already expressed his desire to return to the show and so has Lively. The show’s executive producers, however, have kept things ambiguous.
The Gossip Girl reboot has not exactly been confirmed by Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz yet. E! News reports that the producers have stated that they have not thought about anything yet. Schwartz noted of how the “internet has changed” and how the series will be different in the era of Instagram, Snapchat and other social media.
According to Schwartz, almost “everyone is Gossip Girl” in recent times thanks to social media. When the show first appeared, there were no cameras on phones even. Nonetheless, fans and even the original cast welcome the idea of a reboot.
Captain America star Sebastian Stan has expressed his desire for a Gossip Girl reboot. He has already revealed that two other co-stars are also interested in coming back. Many also feel that reviving the show would not be too difficult. The premise of the show lends itself quite nicely to modern times according to a section of fans.
