Gossip Girl Reboot Will Follow A New Generation Of Teens
Hey there Upper East Siders. Chatter Girl here. And I have the greatest news ever. Well, perhaps not the “greatest” news, but a piece of news nonetheless …
Now that the Gossip Woman reboot is formally a go at HBO Max, co-creators Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz have begun speaking about how the new series will differ from the initial. Specifically, the existence of Chatter Woman, the semi-anonymous rumor blog site that tracked and propelled the drama between rich New York City teens over six seasons of the hit CW program. “We felt there was something fascinating that we are all ‘chatter woman’ in our own way and how that’s developed, changed and altered,” said Schwartz at a TCA panel. Joshua Safran, an author on the original series and (apparently) head writer of the reboot, reportedly wishes to “overturn the paradigm of the initial,”.
The new series will be set 8 years after, and in the exact same universe as, the initial. Blog sites have actually paved the way to social media; now, everyone is developing their online reputation all the time.And it will certainly stay a teen program.” We felt that a version with just our cast grown up, despite the obstacles of getting those stars, didn’t seem like a group of grownups controlled by’chatter girl’made much sense,”said Schwartz. But the door is open for anybody from the original cast who desires a visitor area on a show that might as well be called Gossip Woman: The Next Generation.”If they wish to be associated with some way– we’ve connected to them, we ‘d enjoy them to be included but we didn’t wish to makeit contingent. It ‘d be terrific to see them again. “Hmm, let’s consider. Thanks to a time jump in the final episode, audiences understand quite well what ended up being of Dan, Serena, Nate and Chuck. But Nate Archibald( Chace Crawford)is in the media market, so we could see him having some sort of existence. Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen) is a fashion designer, and every program requires a character who is a designer. And heck, let’s toss Vanessa Abrams(Jessica Szohr )therein, too. Vanessa was always popping up where you least expected her.
