How to watch the Gossip Girl reboot in Australia
A whole new generation is about to become obsessed with the privileged lives of New York City’s elite private schoolers, with a brand-new teaser trailer and Australian release date announced for the Gossip Girl reboot. Almost a decade after the original series’ jaw-dropping conclusion, an all-new cast is set to take the Upper East Side by storm, starring lesser-known and more diverse actors.
The cast includes Emily Alyn Lind, Eli Brown, Whitney Peak, Thomas Doherty, Jordan Alexander, Evan Mock, Zion Moreno, Savannah Smith and Tavi Gevinson, with Kristen Bell returning as the voice of Gossip Girl.
The new series, developed by Joshua Safran (who executive-produced the O.G. Gossip Girl), will be released on HBO Max in the US, suggesting the show will feature more adult storylines than the previous CW-produced series.
According to Safran, the 2021 Gossip Girl reboot will not be a direct continuation of the original show, but rather a new story set in the same world. Excitingly, this means previous characters can be freely referenced and may even reappear.
Where to watch the Gossip Girl reboot in Australia
Like most HBO originals, Binge gets first dibs on the Gossip Girl reboot streaming rights in Australia. It’s likely the series may also get an airdate on Foxtel, but this has yet to be confirmed, and Binge is by far the cheapest option out of the two, starting at $10 per month with a two-week free trial.
If you’re keen to catch up on all the drama of the original (starring Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgeley, Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick), you can stream all six seasons on Binge, Netflix, Stan and Foxtel Now.
