    How do you create a series in which today's teenagers have their eyes permanently glued to their smartphones? And don't dare tell me the youth of today are engaged with social talk because just today at work not one of my fellow co-workers during the lunch break spoke. Earbuds in watching whatever on their device. Sad really.

    Gossip Girl was a representation of social media in a different form. People snitched to GG and "she" spat it out online. 2007-2012 was a different time for social media, but the show isn't The OC (the previous show by the same writers/producers) where social media was non-existent. I'd say the concept of Gossip Girl (the blogger) would be even more brutal in today's social media landscape.

    Not the best example, but the pilot even opens with people engaged in what is on their screens.

    Isn’t Gossip Girl far too recent for it to be rebooted?

    The 90210 shows are eight years apart but a lot changed between 2000 & 2008, plus it was a next generation continuation?

    Or have the 2010s ran out of 80s/90s/00s television shows to reboot that they’re rebooting early 10s shows
