A reboot of the CW series Gossip Girl could be coming to TV screens, an executive has revealed.
Discussions have reportedly taken place over bringing back the teen drama, which originally starred Blake Lively, Ed Westwick and Penn Badgley, and aired from 2007 to 2012.
Narrated by Kristen Bell, the series followed the lives of a group of privileged upper-class teens living in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
Gossip Girl was a huge hit for US TV network The CW, with sponsors estimated to have spent $28m on ads for the show in 2007 alone, and president Mark Pedowitz has confirmed it could get the reboot treatment.
According to Deadline, he said: “There’s been discussions. But I don’t know if we’re there yet.”
Pedowitz added that the show’s return would be dependent on Warner Bros, which owns the CW, as well as show creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.
Gossip Girl ran for six seasons across 121 episodes and was described in 2008 by The New York Times as “one of the biggest influences on how young women spend” money, thanks to the fashion trends it inspired.
