It is being said that while the reboot will be a very different lookout at the show with a lot of changes included, the makers of the show have decided to keep some iconic moments from the OG series retained. This obviously includes the lunches at the Met steps. The shoot for the reboot began in October after it was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Warner Bros had earlier confirmed in September that the series will be spread across 10 episodes with production taking place in Vancouver, New York City, and Los Angeles. Joshua Safran also shared that the reboot will be "very, very queer" and will be different from the original series. The makers also confirmed that Kristen Bell will be returning as the voice of Gossip Girl for the reboot as well. The series is now expected to debut sometime in 2021 because of the delay, and not later in 2020 as planned originally.
