The New "Gossip Girl" Reboot Sounds Absolutely Delicious, And We Want To Know Who You'd Want In The Cast

Who are your picks to play this next generation of Manhattan's elite?

BuzzFeed here, your one and only source into the twists and turns of pop culture today — and in case you haven't heard, the latest TV news is that there's going to be a Gossip Girl reboot.

Move over, '90s sentimentality, because the '00s nostalgia train is officially coming — and like Serena van der Woodsen circa 2007, she's here to stay.

Apparently, we'll be getting 10 hour-long episodes on HBO Max (WarnerMedia's streaming service) that take place "eight years after the original website went dark," when a "new generation of New York private school teens are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl."

So, the only bad news is that no, we won't be meeting up with Jenny, Blair, or the rest of the gang from the CW show we all knew and loved and secretly watched after school when our parents weren't around...

^^Amen to that!

But even though we're getting a whole new cast of characters, we're betting the show will still have some basic Serena/Dan/Nate-esque archetypes – every teen drama needs a bad boy and a queen bee, after all!

Even better: if we got to see those archetypes reimagined and subverted in a cool way. 'Cause hello, it's 2019, people!

So here's my question to you: who would YOU want cast in this remake of the most scandalous show about high schoolers to ever exist? And what kind of character would they play?

For example, we've already seen Zendaya play a fantastic teen rebel/outcast in both Euphoria and Spider-Man: Far From Home lately. Wouldn't she be great as a popular-but-harboring-an-extremely-dark-secret clique leader?

Or like, I adored how sweet and witty Lana Condor was in To All The Boys I've Loved Before, but what if she can do a GREAT mean Queen Bee, and we've just never given her the chance??

Obviously, if Lana's in the cast, I will NEED Noah Centineo to make an appearance on that cast list. You know he's got the lovable jock type down, but I also wouldn't mind seeing him have fun as an overly charismatic jerk with waaaaay too much money on his hands?

Chuck Bass will never see it coming!

And here's a very important Q: Will the Stranger Things kids be old enough to pass for freshmen??

I think yes!!

So, since this golden age of television isn't going to cast itself, tell us in the comments (and add pics if you want!): who should be in the Gossip Girl reboot we deserve, and what kind of character would they play??

The best responses will be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post or video, and also be memorialized as a part of Gossip Girl history forever. You know you love it. XOXO, BuzzFeed.
