Hey Upper East Siders, one major person is returning for the making of the new Gossip Girl spin-off.

She's back! Kristen Bell will be back for the "reimagined" Gossip Girl series, according to Deadline on Thursday.

The team behind HBO Max is already starting on plans for worldwide expansion ahead of the streaming service's May 2020 launch.

There has been no word on the new cast, or a release date, but HBO has said it will be about a "new generation" of teens and how "social media" has changed the landscape.

According to Variety, the new show is set eight years after the original and will follow a new generation of NY school teens who get to know about the social surveillance of the Gossip Girl site.

The reboot will center on a new generation of NY private school students and addresses how much social media - and the landscape of NY itself - has changed since the original Gossip Girl website "went dark".


Bell's "Gossip Girl" deal came as the actress wrapped up the final season of her hit series "The Good Place".

A few months back, it was confirmed that the Gossip Girl reboot was, indeed, happening.

There are several actresses more certainly suited to omnipresence than Kristen Bell-currently hanging out at the Frozen twopremiere, even as her alter-ego Eleanor Shellstrop wrestles with the infinite about on The Fantastic Location.

In addition to Bell, the 2007-2012 series starred Blake Lively, Chace Crawford and Leighton Meester.

Last July, Schwartz clarified that this new series will not be a reboot, but rather more of a sequel. The brand new collection shall be helmed by the present's authentic artistic workforce, which incorporates creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, and author Joshua Safran.

No other original cast members are signed on, but the option is open.
