AceShowbiz - Serena van der Woodsen may be heading back to the small screen. During The CW's panel at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, the network revealed to the audience that a reboot to the Blake Lively-starring drama series is being considered on the network.
"There's a discussion, but I don’t know if we're there yet," The CW president Mark Pedowitz said on Thursday, January 31. "I don't know what it would be."
He went on explaining that "a lot is up to Warner Bros." as well as executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage." Pedowitz added, "You don't want to do anything without them."
Also starring Leighton Meester as Serena's (Lively) frenemy Blair Waldorf, Penn Badgley as Dan Humphrey, Chace Crawford as Nathaniel "Nate" Archibald and Ed Westwick as Charles "Chuck" Bass, "Gossip Girl" aired on the network for six seasons from September 19, 2007 to December 17, 2012. Naratted by the omniscient blogger "Gossip Girl" (voiced by Kristen Bell), the teen drama followed the lives of privileged upper-class adolescents living in Manhattan's Upper East Side.
Despite the mediocre ratings during its run, "Gossip Girl" was a pop culture phenomenon and made household names of the stars. Following the series, Lively has been starring in a slew of feature films including "The Age of Adaline", "The Shallows" and "A Simple Favor". As for Badley, he recently created buzz after starring on stalker thriller "You".
Additionally, the series collected numerous award nominations in addition to winning 18 Teen Choice Awards.
It remains to be seen whether the network will be moving forward with the reboot or whether original stars will be returning. Should it be happening, the new take of "Gossip Girl" will join a slew of other reboots developed for The CW. They include "Charmed", "Dynasty" and "Rosswell".
