It has been 5 long years since we said goodbye to our favourite “Gossip Girl” characters.
The series, which originally ran on The CW from September 2007 to December 2012, followed the trials, and tribulations of Upper East Side adolescents Serena van der Woodsen (played by Blake Lively), Blair Waldorf (played by Leighton Meester), Nate Archibald (played by Chace Crawford), Chuck Bass (played by Ed Westwick), and of course, Brooklyn “outsider” Dan Humphrey (played by Penn Badgley), just to name a few.
Their lives and secrets? Told by omniscient blogger “Gossip Girl” (voiced by Kristen Bell). Oh, you know, the one that goes, “Gossip Girl here, your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite. Where has she been? Serena. And who am I? That’s one secret I’ll never tell! You know you love me…XOXO, Gossip Girl.”
If you followed the show closely (for 6 whole seasons!), you’d know how it all ends. Personally, we’re still reeling from the shock after the big “Gossip Girl” reveal and it has left us feeling rather incomplete. Well, the good news is that the show’s creators are just days away from announcing that they’re bringing the show back!
Or so the rumours say.
“It’s just a question of dotting the ‘i’s and crossing the ‘t’s, then it’ll be all systems go. The plot is all worked out, though. It’ll be a jump forward in time, factoring in where the show ended, and then fast-forwarding to where the characters are and what they’re doing now,” said an industry insider, adding that “Gossip Girl” (the blogger) will go back to being anonymous.
Take this with a pinch of salt though, as this is not the first time that there are “talks” of a reboot and also remember that there hasn’t been an official announcement as of yet. But fingers crossed that there’s some truth to the rumours!
