OG ‘Gossip Girl’ completes 10 years as HBO reboot continues to woo new fans
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: The popular show 'Gossip Girl' completes a decade of its release. The show's dialogue "Hello, Upper East-siders! 'Gossip Girl' here" turned out to be one of the most trending dialogues of the generation. The CW series was a teen drama genre series based on the novel of the same name written by Cecily von Ziegesar. The OG 'Gossip Girl' last episode was an absolute shocker as it showcased Serena (Blake Lively), Blair (Leighton Meester), Chuck (Ed Westwick), and Nate (Chace Crawford) finding out who was pulling the strings and creating drama out of thin air for all of the six seasons.
Meanwhile, a sequel premiered on HBO Max with a new cast. The new HBO Max series is perhaps just a little modern but has the same juicy drama as the prequel did. The prequel was narrated by the unknown, omniscient blogger 'Gossip Girl' (voiced by Kristen Bell, who also is narrating in the sequel) that spilled scandalous secrets of the privileged upper-class adolescents living in Manhattan's Upper East Side.

A decade ago 'Gossip Girl's last episode spilled the tea on who was the actual one pulling the strings. Turns out, it was Penn Badgley's Dan Humphrey all along.

Although the last episode did raise some eyebrows, people were not too disappointed as they witnessed a sweet ending that showcased Blair and Chuck attending Serena's and Dan's wedding with their son. Not just that, Nate became a respectable politician as well.
The official synopsis of the CW series reads, "The show centers on the scandalous lives of attractive, privileged and very affluent teens who reside in Manhattan's Upper East Side (UES) and how they betray one another while being constantly observed by a vicious but well-known blogger."
Meanwhile, the sequel series has been renewed for a second season and premiered on December 1, 2022, on HBO Max.
