It’s been a decade since Gossip Girl first premiered on The CW, but the hit teen drama still holds a special place in the hearts of fans old and new — and many are wondering if perhaps the time is right for revival.
Though nothing is set in stone, one Gossip Girl actress who wouldn’t be opposed to revisiting the Upper East Side is Blake Lively.
Lively recently caught up with Vanity Fair to reminisce on the iconic series and revealed she’d be open to stepping back into Serena Van Der Woodsen’s incredibly stylish attire on one condition.
“Of course. I’m open to anything that’s good, that’s interesting, and that sort of feels necessary,” said Lively. “I imagine we all would [consider it]/ I can’t speak for everyone else, but we all owe so much to this show, and I think that it would be silly not to acknowledge that.”
Given that Lively has gone on to have an incredibly successful career in film since Gossip Girl wrapped, it might surprise some to hear that she’s so open to the possibility of returning to reprise her role.
Then again, perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that Lively is so loyal to some of the bigger titles that put her on the map. Gossip Girl aside, Lively has also stated on numerous occasions that she’s all for a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 3, so it’s clear she’s all about the revivals.
There’s no telling whether or not a Gossip Girl revival will ever happen, but given Lively’s openness to the possibility, we’re hoping that they’ll figure out a way to make it work. We’d love the opportunity to see what Serena (Lively), Blair (Leighton Meester), Chuck (Ed Westwick), Nate (Chase Crawford), Dan (Penn Badgley), and the rest of the gang are up to these days!
