Friends fans aren't the only ones who might want to make some room in their streaming budget for HBO Max. The WarnerMedia streaming service has given a straight-to-series order for a reboot of Gossip Girl, Variety reports.
It's unknown at this time if any stars of the original series, which ran from 2007-12 on The CW, will return for the new iteration, but the new show is expected to pick up several years after that finale, with a new group of upper crusters who have to navigate the dizzying social maze of New York private school life and the new landscape of social media.
The new series has been given a green light for its first 10-episode season and will feature the return of several creatives from Gossip Girl, including executive producers Joshua Safran, Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, and Leslie Morgenstein.
HBO Max is expected to launch in 2020 and will also feature the launch of several other originals, including Dune: The Sisterhood, Tokyo Vice, The Flight Attendant, Love Life, Station Eleven, Made for Love, and an animated Gremlins prequel series.
Gossip Girl is currently available for streaming on Netflix.
