HBO rebooting Gossip Girl

I really don’t know what to make of this, but I’m gonna go along with it.

HBO Max, the new streaming service from HBO, has ordered 10 episodes, an hour long each, of a reimagined version of Gossip Girl.

Like the original series, the new iteration of Gossip Girl, written by Safran, is based on the book by Cecily von Ziegesar. The logline: Eight years after the original website went dark, a new generation of New York private school teens are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl. The prestige series will address just how much social media — and the landscape of New York itself — has changed in the intervening years.

There’s no word on casting or air dates, but I would venture to say the old crew will make guest appearances.  They always do.
