Based on the novels by Cecily von Ziegesar, the original series, which aired between 2007-2012, will also be able to watch in full on BBC iPlayer.

Developed by Joshua Safran, Gossip Girl follows a group of teenage New York socialites at an exclusive private school in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The new series will explore how social media, social surveillance and the New York landscape itself has changed in the nine years since the original gossip blog went dark.
