Cult teen drama Gossip Girl is returning for an eagerly anticipated reboot and the new cast has been unveiled.

The 10 one-hour episodes will appear on HBO Max and will be set eight years after the original and feature a new generation of privileged teens in New York.

According to the show's synopsis, the reboot will "address just how much social media – and the landscape of New York itself – has changed" in the last decade.

While the upcoming reboot has been entirely reimagined, fans of the original series – which aired from 2007 to 2012 – will be happy to see the cast's go-to lunch place on the Upper East Side remains the same.

None of the original cast are lined up to return, but Kristen Bell – the voice of Gossip Girl – will be filling her usual spot narrating the show as the omniscient blogger.

Chace Crawford, who famously played Nate Archibald, reportedly said he would ‘absolutely cameo’ should the opportunity arise, however.

The new characters will be seen attending the same Upper East Side prep school attended by the original cast, Constance Billard, and will continue to meet on the steps of the Met.

But the cast will be thrust into the modern world as teens experience it now, with the turbulent landscape of social media mixed into the trials and tribulations of a Manhattan private school in 2020.

Production on the teen drama began in October after it was forced to delay due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Warner Bros. confirmed to Variety in September that the ten-episode reboot would start shooting across North America towards the end of the month in Vancouver, NYC and Los Angeles.

Original series creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are serving as executive producers while Joshua Safran, a producer on the first Gossip Girl, is on writing duties.
