Last year, fans of the well-loved series Gossip Girl got all excited as HBO Max announces that they have the exclusive rights to reboot CW’s popular series. Unfortunately, fans may have to wait a bit longer for the 10-episode reboot to hit the screens due to the recent postponement of its premiere due to the rising cases of COVID-19.
According to Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer of HBO Max, the series, which will stream on WarnerMedia’s new streaming service, was set to begin filming in March. However, got pushed back due to the pandemic. Reilly also added that filming and production of the series won’t start until 2021 and dates of the release remain unconfirmed, as shooting and production depend on when the filming resumes.
The reboot stars Emily Alyn Lind, Whitney Peak, Johnathan Fernandez, Eli Brown, Jason Gotay, and Kristen Bell confirms to narrate and lend her voice to the series once again.
According to reports, the 10-episode reboot is set eight years after the original series aired and will follow a new group of Manhattan’s elite rich kids and will not focus on Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf.
With the reboot now on hold, everyone can settle to re-watching Gossip Girl on Netflix as a refresher.
