GOSSIP GIRL | Binge the first 10 episodes from 3 December, first on Showmax, with episodes 11-12 due 10 December 2021, express from the U.S
Based on the bestselling novels by Cecily von Ziegesar, the original 2007 Gossip Girl won 18 Teen Choice Awards and launched the careers of the likes of Penn Badgley (You) and Blake Lively (The Town).
Now this extension of the pop culture classic takes us back to the Upper East Side, finding a new generation of New York private school teens being introduced to social surveillance nine years after the original blogger's website went dark.
Gossip Girl, which explores just how much social media - and the landscape of New York itself — has changed in the intervening years, saw record viewership over its first weekend on HBO Max in July 2021, trending at #1 on Twitter and generating over 15 billion total social impressions at launch.
Amid all the gorgeous fresh faces, some of the key elements that made the original Gossip Girl such a hit will stay the same – People's Choice Award winner Kristen Bell (The Good Place, Veronica Mars and the voice of Frozen's Anna) returns to voice the anonymous blogger and "Gossip Girl", and the show will be helmed by the original executive producer team of Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (The O.C.) and Joshua Safran (Quantico), who developed the new series and serves as showrunner.
Also catch all 122 episodes of the original Gossip Girl series from 1 December, for a limited time only until 31 March 2022.
