“Hey Upper East Siders. Gossip Girl here, remember me? I have huge news…”
Rumors are flying around that the CW’s Gossip Girl might get a reboot. CW’s president Mark Pedowitz is finally addressing these rumors.
“There’s a discussion, but I don’t know if we’re there yet,” he said on Thursday (Jan. 31) at the TV Critics’ Association press tour. “I don’t know what it would be. A lot is up to Warner Bros. and [exec producers] Josh [Schwartz] and Steph[anie Savage], ’cause you don’t want to do anything without them.”
I don’t want to get my hopes up, but will the original cast be a part of the reboot? Both Blake Lively (Serena van der Woodsen) and Leighton Meester (Blair Waldorf) have spoken about the possibility of returning to the steps of the Met.
“It sort of all depends. Would I do seven years of the show? No, because it’s hard work and I’ve got my babies, and I don’t want to be away from them that much. But I’ve just learned in life you never say never. I’m looking to do something that I haven’t done yet, not something that I did. But would I do that? Who knows—if it was good, if it made sense. We had so much fun shooting and living and working in New York City,” said Lively.
While Lively seems open to the idea, Meester is a bit more reluctant to dawn the iconic headband.
“I guess I hear that [reunion talk] in fits and starts here and there, but it’s hard to say,” Meester said. “If everyone was into it and if the timing was right, you know? I don’t want to say, ‘No, never…’”
“You know you miss me, XOXO. Gossip Girl”
