Fans of the reboot version of Gossip Girl have amazing news from HBO Max. The streaming platform has renewed the series for a second season and it has been announced officially. The series dropped on HBO Max in July this year and is slightly different from the original show which aired from 2007 to 2012. The first season consists of 12 episodes, while the first six episodes are totally out, the rest of them will stream in November this year.

The Hollywood Reporter announced the series renewal much to the excitement of the fans. Gossip Girl reboot has an ensemble cast including Jordan Alexander, Whitney Peak, Tavi Gevinson, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Zión Moreno and Savannah Lee Smith. Meanwhile, Kristen Bell returned as the narrator of the series.

The show, however, is different from its predecessor when it comes to the characters as the makers have included several non-white and LGBTQ characters.

Unlike the previous show, where the viewers had to wait for six long years to know who the Gossip Girl is, the makers of the new show reveal the identity in the very first season. 

The teen drama is based on the book Gossip Girl by Cecily von Ziegesar. While Joshua Safran, Stephanie Savage, Josh Schwartz, Leslie Morgenstein, Gina Girolamo and Karena Evans serve as the executive producers.

Josh Safran is also the writer and the showrunner of the series.

Earlier during the launch of the show, Josh had told the international publication, "I’m actually grateful that HBO Max airs show weekly because I think what made Gossip Girl work the first time around and made it such a big hit was that you watched it on Monday and you talked about it all week, what was going to happen."
