‘Gossip Girl’ reboot has been canceled at HBO Max

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that ‘Gossip Girl’ reboot has been canceled at HBO Max.

“We are very grateful to Josh Safran, Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz for bringing us back to the Upper East Side and all the scandals at Constance Billard. Although we are not moving forward with a third season of Gossip Girl, we thank them for the enticing love triangles, calculated backstabbing and impeccable fashion this series brought to a new audience,” HBO Max said in a statement Thursday.

Schwartz and Savage, who created the original CW series, developed the update alongside former writer Safran who was tapped by the duo to serve as showrunner on the new incarnation that featured an updated-for-today premise and cast of fresh faces (along with a couple returning favorites). 

Season one launched in July 2021 with what HBO Max said was its best debut for a Max original at the time. The series was renewed halfway through its freshman season. (HBO Max, like other streamers, does not release traditional viewership data.)

The timing of the cancellation comes as HBO Max, under WBD CEO David Zaslav, has been in cost-cutting mode as the merged company looks to find billions of dollars in cost savings. To that end, Max has canceled a slew of scripted originals and reversed course on a number of other programs (including Minx) and dropped scores of titles from its streaming platform.

Gossip Girl was one of a number of so-called “legacy” titles to stem from Warner Bros. Television that had been revived in a bid to bring large fan bases to streaming platforms. Others include Sex and the City update And Just Like That and Pretty Little Liars, among others.
