It will introduce us to a whole new generation of New York private school kids and an updated version of Gossip Girl where she is no longer just trapped behind a computer screen.

Of course the best news is that Kristen Bell is set to be returning to voice her iconic role as Gossip Girl.

It’s not yet known whether some of the other original actors will return to the series but with the show being set in the same world as the OG series, it’s always a possibility.

The Gossip Girl reboot has been given the green light for 10 episodes but no word yet on exactly when it will arrive on our screens.

No doubt Gossip Girl will send us out an alert as soon as she knows more!
