The hit and subversive drama "Gossip Girl" is getting new life with a revival series on HBO Max.

"The show went off the air in 2012, and a couple of years later there was talk of revisiting it as a low-budget feature at New Line".

Like the original series, the new iteration of Gossip Girl, written by Safran, is based on the book by Cecily von Ziegesar.

"The prestige series will address just how much social media - and the landscape of NY itself - has changed in the intervening years", read the press release.

"Gossip Girl" wouldn't be "Gossip Girl" without THE Gossip Girl herself.
