Kristen Bell returning as narrator for Gossip Girl reboot

Kristen Bell returning as narrator for Gossip Girl reboot

The Veronica Mars star and long-time Gossip Girl narrator will be returning for the upcoming series of the reboot, which is now in production.

Kristen Bell will reprise her position as narrator within the upcoming Gossip Lady spin-off. "The prestige series will address just how much social media - and the landscape of NY itself - has changed in the intervening years".

If you are not living under the rock, then you must be aware that popular teen drama Gossip Girl is getting a reboot version.

The cast of Gossip Girl: (L to R) Matthew Settle, Ed Westwick, Taylor Momsen, Chase Crawford, Leighton Meestor, Jessica Szhor, Blake Lively and Penn Badgley. Gossip Girl was shown to be Dan Humphrey in the series finale "New York, I Love You XOXO" in December 2012 after six seasons of anonymity. In 2008, The New York Times reported that the said show has become "one of the biggest influences on how young women spend". All of those things allow us to look at the world 12 years on as opposed to just redoing the story.

Safran executive produces with Fake Empire's Schwartz and Savage, and Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo of Alloy Entertainment. This news comes months after it was announced that a Gossip Girl reboot was coming to the platform, which is set for a May 2020 launch. Reactions from fans on Twitter were overwhelming. Now we can include omniscience back into Bell's checklist of powers, too, with Television Line confirming that the actress will be back again to fulfill narrator obligations on HBO Max's impending Gossip Female reboot.

Here are some tweets on how things went down after the official announcement. In this photo, the actress poses at the premiere for "A Bad Moms Christmas" in Los Angeles, California on October 30, 2017.
