Good morning Upper East Siders, Gossip Girl is coming back!

That’s the word on the street as WarnerMedia’s upcoming streaming service HBO Max has given a 10-episode straight-to-series reboot that will follow a new set of Manhattan prep school students under the watchful eye of a new Gossip Girl website, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The series will pick-up eight years after the original went off the air and tackle how much social media and NYC has changed since then.

While the original show’s creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are executive producing the new update, there’s no word if Blake Lively, Penn Badgley, Leighton Meester, Chace Crawford or Ed Westick will make an appearance.

Here’s a roundup of what the cast has been up to since winding up the show’s six-season run in 2012.
