While the shooting of some projects has been suspended due to the coronavirus (including the long-awaited return of Friends), work on others is in full swing. So, the network has new footage from the set of the reboot of the cult TV series “Gossip Girl”.
Yesterday work was going on at perhaps one of the most recognizable locations – the stairs of the Metropolitan Museum. The reporters’ footage captures the leading roles of Emily Elin Lind, Whitney Peak, Tavi Gevinson, Thomas Doherty and others.

However, you should not look for the former heroes in the series. According to information published in the press, the action will develop eight years after the events of the original “Gossip Girl”: we will see a new generation of “golden youth”. However, fans hope for at least an episodic appearance of Serena van der Woodsen and other heroes, although none of the original caste has yet confirmed their participation in the reboot.

Recall that the stars of the first “Gossip Girl” were Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick. But in November 2019, it was announced that Kristen Bell would return as the voice of Gossip Girl in a new series.
The coronavirus pandemic has also affected filmmakers’ plans. So, filming was supposed to begin in March this year. Due to the violation of the schedule, the premiere dates were also postponed. The series is now expected to hit screens in 2021.
