It looks like headbands, enigmatic and cheeky poetic riddles will be on trend once again as producers of the wildly popular TV series “Gossip Girl” confirmed that a reboot is a possibility. On Friday, CW President Mark Pedowitz confirmed to TVLine that a reboot of the fashionable yet oftentimes controversial show that launched the careers of Leighton Meester, Blake Lively, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford, and Ed Westwick is open for discussion.
“I don’t know what it would be. A lot is up to Warner Bros. and [exec producers] Josh [Schwartz] and Steph[anie Savage], ’cause you don’t want to do anything without them,” Pedowitz said.
Some cast members are open for a revival
What do you know, ultimate frenemies B and S are ready to reign Manhattan all over again as Blake Lively and Leighton Meester expressed positive views about filling in the shoes of Serena Van Der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf once again in a revival. “It sort of all depends,” Lively told Variety in 2017.”Would I do seven years of the show? No, because it’s hard work and I’ve got my babies, and I don’t want to be away from them that much. But I’ve just learned in life you never say never. I’m looking to do something that I haven’t done yet, not something that I did. But would I do that? Who knows—if it was good, if it made sense. We had so much fun shooting and living and working in New York City.”
Chiming in with the same thoughts, Meester told Vanity Fair, “I guess I hear that [reunion talk] in fits and starts here and there, but it’s hard to say. If everyone was into it and if the timing was right, you know? I don’t want to say, ‘No, never…’”
While we wait for the famed upper east side’s infamous motley crew, here are some of the most shocking and sexiest moments that we still can’t get off our minds:
The wild sex scenes
The only thing more shocking on than the who’s who of doing it, it’s where they do it. Blair lost her virginity to Chuck Bass inside the limo. In fact, these two love to play games with each other on bed and in their daily twisted lives. Nate cheated on Blair with Serena and had drunken sex with her on top of the bar. Dan, Vanessa, and Olivia Burke (Hilary Duff) went on a dare to fulfill every college kid’s fantasy: a threesome on their apartment floor.
The twists that made you go “OMFG!”
What’s a Gossip Girl episode without a cliff-hanging twist?
The reason why Serena disappeared and didn’t talk to her friends and family for a year was because she killed someone (sort of). During her rebellious phase, she went out with someone who overdosed on drugs and felt like it was her fault.
Lily and Rufus, perhaps the only couple everyone’s really rooting for, had a love child named Scott!
Georgina is the original mean girl that everyone hates. She just keeps on bringing trouble and surprises every chance she gets. Her biggest reveal? She got pregnant and had a baby, and claimed that Dan was the father! But “claimed” was the operative word. Knowing Georgina, it was, of course just a lie she made up.
Everyone was kept guessing as to who the real Gossip Girl is, but one thing was for sure. GG was part of the circle, because of all the incriminating details he or she knows. Was it Georgina? Dorota? Eric? It turns out, it was “Lonely Boy” Dan.
Excited for the reboot yet?
