Hey Upper East Siders, This Just In: Kristen Bell Is Officially On Board To Narrate Gossip Girl 2.0
Set eight years after the original series aired its final ep, the show is said to be an ‘extension’ of the Gossip Girl world, rather than a straight-up reboot - meaning there’ll be a lot of new faces. (Blair and her headbands will be sorely missed.)
There is one essential face (voice, rather) that’s set to return to the show.
The show’s original creators, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, who will be EPing the new series alongside Joshua Safran, said in a statement that Kristin Bell was the only (gossip) girl for the job. “Kristen Bell has always been and will always be the voice of Gossip Girl.” Damn right.
The show will be dropping in the US on the new streaming service, HBO Max, but we’re yet to find out when the premiere date will be. In the meantime, please enjoy this video of Kristin Bell roasting Trump as GG.
You know you love her.
xoxo Gossip Girl.
