HBO Max has cancelled its “Gossip Girl” reboot, the streaming giant opting not to order a third season at this time ahead of the currently airing second season’s finale on January 26th. That episode will now serve as a series finale.

The new “Gossip Girl” was developed by Joshua Safran based on the bestselling novels by Cecily von Ziegesar and the original CW series developed by Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz. That pair executive produced the reboot alongside showrunner Safran.

Jordan Alexander, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Tavi Gevinson, Emily Alyn Lind and more starred in the series about a new generation of New York private school teens who are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl.

HBO Max said in a statement: “We are very grateful to showrunner/executive producer Joshua Safran, and executive producers Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz for bringing us back to the Upper East Side and all the scandals at Constance Billard. 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.”

The reboot premiered in July 2021 and set a record as HBO Max’s most-watched opening weekend for an original series at the time, which led to a quick second-season renewal.

Though critics were much more upbeat on the second season, the series couldn’t sustain that initial momentum and thus hasn’t broken out in the way HBO Max’s “Pretty Little Liars” and “Sex and the City” revivals have.
