Hey Upper East Siders! ‘Gossip Girl’ is coming back in 2020! And Kirsten Bell is reprising her role as the unmistakable voice of the narrator!
There has been a lot of development since the return of ‘Gossip Girl’ was announced earlier this year in July! Like the fact that it’s not coming back this 2019. Instead, the ‘Gossip Girl’ reboot will be shown on HBO Max this 2020! And that Kirsten Bell will reprise her role as the omniscient narrator of the series! We know all you Upper East Siders are eagerly waiting for more concrete news. So here’s everything we know so far about ‘Gossip Girl’ 2020!
What’s ‘Gossip Girl’ going to be like in 2020?
First of all, the ‘Gossip Girl’ 2020 reboot will take place 8-years after the time of Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively), Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester), and Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick). So we can safely say that any hopes of the original cast being the stars of the show is fruitless. But we can still hope that they’ll appear in cameos (fingers crossed!).
And second of all, since the show is set 8-years after the end of the original series. So we are definitely not going to be seeing flip phones and BlackBerry’s! And who knows, maybe Gossip Girl will even move out of her blog and move into Instagram or Twitter instead! Imagine all the scandalous Instagram Stories she can post!
Also since ‘Gossip Girl’ 2020 will make its home on HBO Max, and HBO Max is set to launch in May. We can safely say that we won’t be expecting ‘Gossip Girl’ anytime before then!
And that’s everything we know so far about the ‘Gossip Girl’ 2020 reboot! Although we do have some questions as to Kirsten Bell’s participation in the series. Since her character was never really discovered, we can assume she was a classmate of the main cast. Which would now make her out to be a woman in her 30s. So what exactly is a woman her age doing, monitoring a bunch of high-schoolers? Maybe in this reboot we’ll be able to find the answers.
So how close are you to getting that HBO Max subscription? Will you be waiting for ‘Gossip Girl’ when it comes back in 2020? We’d love to hear what you think! So share with us your thoughts in the comments down below! Or hit us up on our Facebook or Twitter @UDoUPh.
