The BBC has acquired the hotly anticipated new drama Gossip Girl as a UK premiere, with it coming to BBC One and BBC iPlayer later this year.
BBC iPlayer will also be home to every episode of the pop culture classic Gossip Girl so far – so as well as the brand new show, fans can enjoy delving into a box set of all six series of the original US teen drama hit, which ran from 2007–2012.
The new Gossip Girl explores just how much social media - and the landscape of New York itself - has changed in the intervening years.
The series stars Jordan Alexander, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Tavi Gevinson, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Zion Moreno, Whitney Peak and Savannah Lee Smith.
Dan McGolpin, Director, BBC iPlayer and Channels says: “The BBC has a rich track record of acquiring some of the best content from around the world to complement our original commissions and we are delighted to be reacquainting existing fans and introducing new viewers to the iconic world of Gossip Girl on BBC iPlayer. The original series defined an era and we cannot wait for everyone to see the new series with its exciting new generation.”
