Imagine Chace Crawford As a Gossip Girl Dad?

Spotted: Nate Archibald going from zaddy to daddy? Not quite, but Chace Crawford is more than open to returning to the world of Gossip Girl for the new HBO Max series. "I'd play a dad now, I guess!" Crawford joked to EW when asked if he'd be Nate or a new character. "No, I have no idea. I just love Josh and Stephanie and if they wanted me to come and do anything it would be hard to say no." The new Gossip Girl is set in the same world of the original CW series Crawford starred in alongside Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Ed Westwick and Penn Badgley. As of now, there have been no official announcements about any cast members returning, in fact the tone of it is still coming together. ...

Hey Upper East Siders: Here's What We Know About Who's Coming to the Gossip Girl Reboot
A spinoff of Gossip Girl was recently announced, and we're all dying to know who we can expect to see from the original cast. The show, which is headed for HBO Max, doesn't yet have a confirmed cast, but here's what we know about whether or not the original stars might show up.

The starring duo, Blake Lively and Leighton Meester, are on slightly different pages with coming back to their Gossip Girl roots. Lively told Variety in 2017 that she would never say never to becoming Serena van der Woodsen again, but at the moment she's wrapped up in being a mom of two (soon to be three) little ones with husband Ryan Reynolds. Meester, on the other hand, told Good Morning America in August that she wasn't asked to join the reboot, even though showrunner Josh Schwartz told The Wrap at the Summer TCA that he had reached out

‘Gossip Girl’ Co-Creator Josh Schwartz: Reimagined Version Will “Subvert The Paradigm” Of The Original – TCA

‘Gossip Girl’ Co-Creator Josh Schwartz: Reimagined Version Will “Subvert The Paradigm” Of The Original – TCA
Gossip Girl co-creator Josh Schwartz opened up about the forthcoming reimagining of the CW drama, which last week was ordered to series at HBO Max.

He admitted that he and his producing partner Stephanie Savage had no interest in doing a version with the original cast grown up.

“Stephanie and I have been talking about it off for the last couple of years and obviously we’ve seen more shows get revisited and there are people on social media asking for it,” he said Friday during the TCA summer press tour. “We felt that a version with just our cast grown up, regardless of the challenges of getting those actors, didn’t feel like a group of adults controlled by ‘gossip girl’ made much sense. We felt there was something interesting that we are all ‘gossip girl’ in our own way and how that’s evolved, morphed and mutated and

Do We Really Need a Gossip Girl Reboot?

The internet let out a collective sigh when it was announced this week that Gossip Girl was getting the reboot treatment.

In this day and age, everything is being rebooted. That's not to say that creativity is lacking in Hollywood. It's the networks. They are banking on these legacy brands in bringing in the viewers as opposed to promoting the heck out of a new IP.

But given how much the world has changed since the original Gossip Girl, a reboot could work.

For one, the original series ended just seven years ago. That's the source of much of the skepticism from fans. Using the term "reboot" so soon feels a little silly, but that's the way things are going.

The best thing going for the new take is that original series creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are behind the wheel alongside Og series Ep Joshua Safran to bring this reboot to life.

Gossip Girl Series Reboot Ordered at HBO Max

The super popular CW show Gossip Girl is making a comeback on the upcoming streaming service HBO Max. The series launched the careers of Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford, and Ed Westwick. The series was about rich teens who lived on New York’s Upper East Side, who start getting followed by a ruthless blogger who tracks their every move. The original series, as well as this pickup, is based upon the book by Cecily von Ziegesar.

Deadline reports the following description for the show:

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.

This is a totally smart reboot. They will have a lot of places to go with that premise.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about BBC’s “White Gold”

BBC comedy White Gold first hit our screens in 2017. The show, which tells the story of cockney wide-boy Vincent Swan and his crew of double-glazing salesmen, was an immediate success. White Gold was commissioned for a 2nd season shortly after the first wrapped, and despite fans having to wait over 2 years to see it (more on the reason behind the delay shortly), they’ve clearly not lost their appetite for a dose of 1980’s nostalgia in the meantime.

Love Hurts: 25 Obsessive Love Stories on TV

Love is not always love ... especially not when it comes to obsessive love.

We've seen the formula on many of our TV shows: infatuation turns to an unhealthy obsession which sometimes turns into full-on stalking.

There are various types of obsessive love.

There's the outright stalker that hopes his good charms win over the girl before he eventually kills her.
