It’s the era of television reboots, and it looks like the CW’s “Gossip Girl” might be getting it’s moment next.
According to a report from E! News, the show’s executive producers, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, are not ruling out the possibility of a revival.
When asked if he would consider doing a reboot, Josh replied,
We haven’t really explored some of those conversations. Maybe, I don’t know. We haven’t really thought about it.
He also added “the internet has changed” and he would be interested in exploring how Serena and Blair would fair with new social media apps like Snapchat and Instagram.
So, although that sounds like a “maybe, probably not” to a normal person, in industry speak that’s a lot more optimistic.
To me, it sounds like they’re at least trying to work on something — it’s hard to believe the producers hadn’t even thought about it amidst the publicity for the “Gilmore Girls” and “Fuller House” reboot series.
“Gossip Girl” ended in 2012, so it might be a bit too soon to launch a revival just yet. Maybe we’ll hear about it again in upcoming years.
And of course, whether Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and the rest of the cast would come back if there WAS a revival would be a whole different story.
As the girls would say, only time will tell.
