The bad news for now is that HBO Max has not technically shared a date for when the reboot is going to return. It does look as though it will be back this year, but whether we’re talking October or November, for example, remains to be seen. We’ll hopefully get a date over the next few weeks, and potentially even a trailer for what is coming up next.
Beyond just a return date for this, we’re equally curious to learn more about what the long-term future is going to be here, as well. We know that Gossip Girl performed extremely well for the streaming service upon its premiere, which makes sense given the popularity of the original series. However, we do know that reboots and revivals have a trajectory to get off to a great start, only to soon after falter and stumble. These shows are marketed based on curiosity but inevitably, you aren’t going to be able to keep everyone watching in the long-term. Some people will bail.
Hopefully, though, this version of Gossip Girl is doing enough to get more episodes down the road, and to keep people hooked for at least a little while. After all, this is a series that is bringing quite a bit to the table moving forward; it’s not trying to replicate the story pattern of the original. It’s doing its own thing, but we’ll wait and see how it ultimately pans out.
