What Would Chatter Woman Look Like Today?
Hey, Upper East Siders (and everyone else),
You have actually most likely currently heard the news that a brand-new Gossip Lady is on its method, via HBO Max. If you were a fan of the initial series, you might have blended feelings about a Gen-Z version. Perhaps you’re thrilled, or possibly you seethe that they didn’t simply go on and make that “Valley Girls” spin-off about Lily van der Woodsen with Krysten Ritter and Brittany Snow like they guaranteed back in 2009. To recreate Gossip Girl might appear like a fool’s errand– what could possibly beat that renowned opening sequence in Grand Central with Peter, Bjorn and John’s”Young Folks “blaring in the background? And as much as we ‘d like a reunion with the original cast, do not hold your breath). However, as series creator Josh Schwartz has explained through Twitter, this new series is an upgrade, not a reboot. And there are, of course, some pros to the brand-new Gossip Woman being on HBO Max.
For one thing, whereas The CW needed to keep things household friendly, on premium cable anything’s possible– just take a look at Euphoria.

Looking back, we can consider the show as a little time capsule of 2007 to 2012, and since then, a number of the old haunts have ended up being passé. The Upper East Siders will not be heading out to Butter or Panchito’s for a private drink, for instance. And Henri Bendel doesn’t even exist anymore. In this new variation of things, Blair most likely eats at Polo Bar, and Nate can’t assist but make a look at China Chalet. As a snobby cinephile, Dan loves a Metrograph minute and has a taste for the negronis at the Commissary. (He doesn’t mark down the close distance to Clandestino and Dimes, though).
Got to watch the new show!!
