Kristen Bell will return for the Gossip Girl reboot

With its new reincarnation, Gossip Girl is also making the jump from network television to streaming on HBO Max.

Kristen Bell diving back into the world of Upper East Side drama.

Bell is rumoured to be the only star from the OG Gossip Girl to return to the show, whose run of six seasons ended in 2012.

Kristen Bell is back in her iconic role in the "Gossip Girl".

Further casting details have yet to be revealed.

The Gossip Girl reboot has a familiar face set to return: Kristen Bell! "The idea of being able to do it on a streamer where we're less restricted was very exciting to us, so we called [executive producer] Josh Safran", creator Josh Schwartz told THR of the reboot.

As Schwartz said: ... we would love for them to be involved if they want....

"If they felt like they were good with that, we wanted to respect that".

The project was announced in July with a straight-to-series order.

"Gossip Girl" wouldn't be "Gossip Girl" without THE Gossip Girl herself.

The original Gossip Girl cast (from left to right): Chace Crawford, Blake Lively, Ed Westwick, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley and Taylor Momsen.

The reboot will center on a new generation of NY private school students and addresses how much social media - and the landscape of NY itself - has changed since the original Gossip Girl website "went dark".

Currently, there's no word on when we can expect HBO Max's Gossip Girl reboot to premiere.

The new series will follow a group of Manhattan-based private-schoolers, much like the original, only this time they'll be dealing with the growing influence of social media.
