Greetings, Upper Eastsiders! The series finale of “Gossip Girl,” aired on HBO Max, will be available on the streaming service on January 26. Although it received a 38% critics’ approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes when Season 1 debuted in July 2021, Variety’s Caroline Framke praised the show, writing that it “does immediately address one issue that plagued the previous “Gossip Girl” by flipping it on its head in a way that energizes the new one.”
This time, there won’t be any audience speculation about who the real Gossip Girl might be. (In the revival, Gossip Girl served as the resentful staff at the show’s made-up private school.) Although there were fewer reviews for Season 2, its score on Rotten Tomatoes increased.
HBO Max released a statement thanking executive producers Stephanie Savage, Josh Schwartz, and showrunner/executive producer Joshua Safran for returning the series to the Upper East Side and all the controversies at Constance Billard. “Gossip Girl’s” third season will not be produced, but we are grateful for the captivating love triangles, clever backstabbing, and flawless fashion; this series introduced to a new audience.”
In September 2021, HBO Max announced the approval of Season 2, boasting that the first season had “record viewership” for the streamer. In December 2022, the second season made its premiere.

The series creator, Joshua Safran, announced on Instagram that “Gossip Girl” would not be renewed for a second season on HBO Max with the heaviest of hearts. The writers for their cunning minds and dexterous talent; the superstar cast for being the best of partners and friends; and the crew for their tireless effort, devotion, and passion for the project are all people for whom the EPs and I will always be grateful.
In all honesty, this was the best set I’ve ever worked on. If this is the end, at least we went out on the highest of highs. We are currently looking for a new home, but in this climate, that may prove to be an uphill battle. I appreciate you watching, and I hope you’ll stay tuned for the conclusion on Thursday to see how it all turns out.
The movie “Gossip Girl” is based on the CW television series of the same name, which aired from 2007 to 2012 for six seasons and was based on Cecily von Ziegesar’s novels. Eight years after the blogger’s website from the first season went down, the revival follows a new generation of teenagers attending private schools in New York who are first exposed to social surveillance. To maintain control over the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite, Gossip Girl stops at nothing in Season 2, which began during the second semester of junior year.
With Michelle Trachtenberg serving as a special guest star, the cast includes Jordan Alexander, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Tavi Gevinson, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Zion Moreno, Whitney Peak, Savannah Lee Smith, and Grace Duah. (Trachtenberg made a comeback to portray Georgina Sparks, a part she had in the first series.)
