Since news broke on July 17, 2019, some fans have been crossing their fingers that an updated version of gossip girl is officially happening after a long pause. The former of CW- shows how- based on the book series by Cecily Von Ziegesar- is getting relaunched by Warner’s media streaming service, HBO Max.

What does the gossip girl reboot look like?

The very first trailer dropped at the end of May 2021. In early June, a more extended look at the series hit the internet. Fans, once again, we’re excited to listen to Kristen bell in the voice of a teen.

The series is based on suspense, mystery & romance. This needs more to improve in wording, scenes etc. Moreover, many more series can be adapted like this series as it is the most loved series for teenagers. Every teenager wishes that this show would never end as we love to watch this series. The string should be of more time duration, like 1 hour or 2 hours.

Why watch it?

Unlike the previous version of the show, the reboot taps into a darker, more sinister vibe. The current ensemble is much more diverse than the original version, with massive representation (that will live up to the expectations, Hopefully). Gossip girls are more likely to attract us. Keeping aside the suspense, romance & mystery, it should have something good to be learned by the teenagers who all are watching this series.

The primary reason for watching this series is the romance, but it should be something else like good unity, friendship, love & care towards friends & family. For the fans of the original show, it’s a nostalgic trip down memory lane. However, as fans of the OG, it is expected they might not get on board with the reboot fully. Many of us consider this series to enjoy life like this, but it’s not the reality. It’s only for entertainment. Many teenagers don’t understand as they thought of the same lives as reel life.
