The original Gossip Girl cast (from left to right): Chace Crawford, Blake Lively, Ed Westwick, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley and Taylor Momsen. "The idea of being able to do it on a streamer where we're less restricted was very exciting to us, so we called [executive producer] Josh Safran", creator Josh Schwartz told THR of the reboot. Safran will write the script and executive produce alongside Schwartz and Savage.

The reboot is to be a reimagining of Gossip Girl for a new generation, one set eight years after the original website went dark, with a whole host of new rich, white American kids ambling about the place up to no good. Safran described the show as a new look at this particular society in NY. In this photo, the actress poses at the premiere for "A Bad Moms Christmas" in Los Angeles, California on October 30, 2017.
