‘Gossip Girl’ Revival Canceled at HBO Max After Two Seasons

Hey, Upper Eastsiders: HBO Max’s “Gossip Girl” has been canceled, and its series finale will drop on the streamer Jan. 26. Season 1 premiered in July

of 2021, and though it received a critics’ score of 38% on Rotten Tomatoes, Variety‘s Caroline Framke praised it, writing the show “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 will be no guessing games as to who Gossip Girl might be — at

least not for the audience.” (In the revival, the embittered teachers at the show’s fictional private school were Gossip Girl.) Season 2 jumped higher on Rotten Tomatoes, but

based on fewer reviews.More from VarietyBerlinale Series Announces HBO Max's 'Spy/Master,' Disney+'s 'The Good Mothers,' India's 'Dahaad' 'And Just Like That': John Corbett

executive producers Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz for bringing us back to the Upper East Side and all the scandals at Constance Billard,” HBO Max said in a statement.

“Although we are not moving forward with a third season of ‘Gossip Girl,’ we thank them for the enticing love triangles, calculated backstabbing and impeccable fashion this series

brought to a new audience.” Season 2 was greenlit in September 2021, with HBO Max touting the first season had achieved “record viewership” for the streamer. The

second season debuted in December 2022.
