Hey Upper East Siders, "Gossip Girl" Reboot Is Headed to HBO Max

Hey Upper East Siders,

Gossip Girl is officially getting a reboot that's scheduled to stream on WarnerMedia's new service, HBO Max.

As much as we'd all love to see Blair and Serena battle it out on the stairs of the Met again, it looks like we'll be watching a whole new cast take on the Upper East Side, as none of the show's original cast members have been confirmed for the spinoff.

Penn Badgley of "Gossip Girl" fame addresses reboot rumors, taking on a creepy character in Lifetime's 'You'.

However, rather than picking up with the original characters, such as Blair, Serena, and Dan, the show is being developed as a sequel-style reboot which will feature an all-new set of NY private schoolers.

The show would debut on the new streaming service, HBO Max.

New standard Switch model will improve battery life 40 to 80 percent
A week after announcing the Switch Lite , Nintendo is back at it today with the announcement of a new standard Switch model. Last week Ninty revealed that the Switch Lite - a handheld only version of their hybrid console - was being released.

The original series continuously made headlines for its mature content and launched the careers of actors Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford, and Ed Westwick.

The news comes seven years after the original TV series, based on the book series of the same name by Cecily von Ziegesar, ended its six-season run on the CW back in 2012. So, aside from the new series' creative team and the fact that the order was for 10 one-hour episodes, all we know is that someone is still running that blasted Gossip Girl website. THR reports that Joshua Safran, who executive produced the latter seasons of the original show, will write and executive produce the new version, as well.

Like the original show, the sequel is from Fake Empire and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Bros.

There has been no premiere date set for the series just yet, but HBO Max is reportedly set to launch in 2020.
