The HBO Max version of the pop culture phenomenon, which ran from 2007 to 2012, will pick up eight years after the Gossip Girl website went dark. 

The original show followed a mysterious blogger who shared the scoop on scandals and heartache among students at an exclusive prep school on Manhattan's Upper East Side. 

'A new generation of New York private school teens are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl,' the new synopsis reads.

Original stars: Emily will play a lead character like the ones played by Blake Lively and Leighton Meester in the CW series (pictured here in 2007)
