LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Dear Upper East Siders and Constance Billard residents, The first month of the new year brought sad news for all the Gossip Girl lovers out there. The teen drama streaming television series, developed by Joshua Safran for HBO Max, was released in November 2021. Unfortunately, after only two short years, the series will be canceled once and for all. Perhaps it’s safe to say that season 2 of the teen drama revival will be its last. Joshua Safran, who developed the show, recently released a statement addressing the news on his social media.

However, it is an expansion and standalone sequel to The CW television series of the same name, based on the novel series by Cecily von Ziegesar. When the OG series aired, it was narrated by ‘Frozen’ star Kristen Bell, who reprized her role as the voice of ‘Gossip Girl’, an anonymous and know-it-all blogger, for the HBO Max series as well.

“So here’s the gossip: It is with a heavy heart that I announce that GOSSIP GIRL will not continue on HBO Max,” said Joshua Safran. He continued: “We are currently looking for another home but in this climate that could prove to be an uphill climb [battle], and if this is the end, at least we’ve gone out with the highest treble. Thanks for watching and I hope you tune in to the finals next Thursday to see how it all comes together.” He ended the announcement by saying, “A big thank you to all the GG fans around the world. You’re the reason we came back in the first place, and who knows, maybe we’ll see each other again. Much love.”

The series features an ensemble cast led by Jordan Alexander, Whitney Peak, Tavi Gevinson, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Zión Moreno, Savannah Lee Smith and Grace Duah.

Gossip Girl’s reimagining with an all-new cast largely failed to live up to the reputation of the original series, which starred Blake Lively and Leighton Meester as Serena Vanderwoodsen and Blaire Waldorf. However, the second season of ‘Gossip Girl’ has yet to play on HBO Max, with the finale scheduled for January 26, 2023.
