If you didn't already know, blog-centric soapy drama Gossip Girl is getting on the reboot train. Except it's not a reboot, at least not in the sense that it's recasting the characters. But it is rebooting the franchise back into life.
The producers have previously said that the option is there to bring original cast members back, and it's an option your favourite teen crush Chace Crawford would very much like to take.
"If there's an opening in the future for doing a cameo, I would definitely be open to it," he told August Man. "The show was a big part of my life and was really special. I loved everyone on it, from the cast to the crew. We were a real family."

The new version of the show will explore "just how much social media – and the landscape of New York itself – has changed in the intervening years", according to its home at new streaming service HBO Max in the US.
Speaking about how he thinks the new version will differ from the original – in a good way – Crawford added: "Our show was on a network, so you do 24 to 26 episodes per season and each episode had its own conflict and resolution.
"If you're doing eight to 10 episodes, as I heard they would be doing on HBO Max, you can write with a different narrative style and have an ending in mind, like they do on Netflix and Amazon shows.
"It's interesting, and I'm sure they can get away with edgier stuff these days."
