HBO Max’s Gossip Girl show will be facing the axe, as the streamer has cancelled it after the second season, which will premiere its finale on January 26.
Joshua Safran took to social media to announce the cancellation of the show and wrote, “So here’s the goss: it is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to announce GOSSIP GIRL will not be continuing on HBO Max. The EPs and I will forever be grateful to the network and studio for their faith and support; the writers for their devious brains and dexterous talent; the superstar cast for being the greatest of collaborators and friends; and the crew for their hard work, dedication, and love for the project.
Gossip Girl reboot show first aired in 2021, but however could not pull large number of viewers to its side, unlike the original show. The series also received mixed reviews. The show featured a cast of Jordan Alexander, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Tavi Gevinson, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Zion Moreno, Whitney Peak, Savannah Lee Smith, Johnathan Fernandez, Adam Chanler-Berat, Todd Almond, Laura Benanti, Grace Duah and Megan Ferguson. The show was narrated by Kristen Bell.
Joshua, in one of his tweets, also said that they are “currently looking for another home”, but might be an “uphill battle” in “this climate”.
Gossip Girl revival was backed by Fake Empire and Alloy Entertainment along with Warner Bros Television and CBS Studios.
