In July, it was confirmed that “Gossip Girl” will be returning to the small screen since the original creators of the hit TV show, Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz, had struck up a deal for a reboot. And now, Joshua Safran is opening up about the various details of the highly anticipated show.

According to People, Safran, who serves as one of the producers and writers of the upcoming show, has revealed that the upcoming series will feature “non-white leads.”

Safran has confirmed that they have decided to cast a much more diverse cast in the reboot, so that the show aptly highlights the world people are living in right now. The acclaimed writer also stated that the show will have a lot of “queer content” this time.

Speaking at the Vulture Festival, Safran shared that there was not a lot of representation in the original series and he was the only gay writer who was working on the show at that time. So this time, they have decided to cast lead actors who are not white and they have decided to fill the show with a lot of queer content, which would be absolutely relatable with the viewers.

“It is very much dealing with the way the world looks now, where wealth and privilege come from, and how you handle that. The thing I can’t say is there a twist, and that all relates to the twist,” Safran explained.

The new take on the show will be taking place eight years after the events in the original series. The drama series will be making its way to HBO’s upcoming streaming service, HBO Max, in 2020.

It was earlier confirmed that Kristen Bell, who gave the voice for the anonymous “Gossip Girl” character in the original drama series, will be returning to the show as the voice of the narrator for the reboot.

As per a press release issued by the producers of the show, Bell was always the first choice for the part and was thrilled to know that she is being offered this role again. The statement further read that the “Good Place” star has always been and will always be the voice of “Gossip Girl.”

The original series ran for six seasons and a total of 121 episodes from 2007-2012. Bell was a part of all the episodes and also appeared in the final episode of the show as herself. It is yet to be seen if other original cast members, including Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Taylor Momsen and Ed Westwick will be reprising their roles for the new show or not.

According to Harper’s Bazaar, a new generation of New York private school teens are introduced to the social surveillance of “Gossip Girl” in the reboot.
