Nearly seven years since it ended, the teen drama "Gossip Girl" is making a comeback.

It was announced this week that the new streaming service HBO Max, which comes from WarnerMedia and is set to launch in 2020, will be rebooting the iconic series. The service said the new "Gossip Girl" will consist of 10 hourlong episodes from the show's original team, including executive producers Joshua Safran, Stephanie Savage, and John Schwartz.

The 2020 "Gossip Girl" will apparently feature a new cast and follow a new generation of New York City private school students and address just how much social media — and the landscape of New York itself — has changed" since the CW show went off the air.

Based on the book series by Cecily von Ziegesar, the original "Gossip Girl" ran for six seasons on the CW from 2007 through 2012, launching the careers of Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and more.
