Is Gossip Girl Coming Back? Here’s What the Cast Says – Glamour

Ever since Gossip Girl went off the air in 2012, people have been waiting for it to come back. We are in the era of reboots, after all, and a show like Gossip Girl⁠—with its soapy twists and die-hard fan base⁠—is ripe for revisiting. In February 2019 news broke that The CW was having “discussions” about rebooting the beloved series, which centered on a group of rich teens living on New York City’s Upper East Side, but nothing was confirmed. Still, fans are holding out for a full-fledged revival⁠—and they may get it. Several of the show’s cast members have said they’re on board with a reboot if all the pieces fell into place. The latest to add his voice to the choir is Chace Crawford, aka Nate Archibald, who told Digital Spy he could see GG coming back as a miniseries.

“I don’t know what it would look like with us being in our 30s now, but I always say, because it was such a big part of my life, I’m open to anything,” he said. “It would have to be really right, and really specific, and with TV and the golden age of the TV streaming service, maybe an eight-episode season.”

Crawford continued, “It would be very tough to get everybody on board I think because of their schedules, Penn, Leighton, Ed…. They’re all doing really good TV shows. It would be hard I think [to get them all together]. The reboot might come in the form of new characters. I would absolutely cameo. I’d have to.”

Crawford is referring to his Gossip Girl costars Penn Badgley (Dan), Leighton Meester (Blair), and Ed Westwick (Chuck), who are all currently starring in successful TV shows. That being said, they’ve also put in their two cents about a GG reboot—as has Blake Lively (Serena). Here’s everything the Gossip Girl cast has put into the universe about a possible reboot:

“It sort of all depends. Would I do seven years of the show? No, because it’s hard work and I’ve got my babies, and I don’t want to be away from them that much. But I’ve just learned in life you never say never. I’m looking to do something that I haven’t done yet, not something that I did. But would I do that? Who knows—if it was good, if it made sense. We had so much fun shooting and living and working in New York City.” —Variety, 2017
