This just in: the Gossip Girl reboot part 2 is making its debut very shortly. Ready to get reacquainted with your favorite Upper East Siders? You'll want to buckle up...

After a hiatus in August 2021, just three months after the first season's premiere, the plot will pick up right where it left off, only things are going to get a lot messier. 

"Trigger warning, followers. I promise this post will not be pretty," our loyal narrator, Kristen Bell, says in the teaser. "Thanks for your secrets, your lies and all of the tips you've given me. This story is anything but over."

The scandalous teens in one of New York City's wealthiest neighborhoods are gearing up to wreak emotional havoc that goes far beyond what most experience in typical high school hallways. There's plenty of kissing, lies, deceit, scandal and a threesome.

The second part of the story will hit screens on Thanksgiving Day in the US (Thursday, November 25) and fans are immensely grateful that they'll have something to binge over the holiday weekend. (Though fair warning: this might not be the most suitable show to catch with Grandma before family dinner.) 

How to watch the 'Gossip Girl' reboot in the US

For US viewers, the only place you’ll be able to stream the reboot is on HBO Max (opens in new tab), and you’ll need to buy a subscription. You can either go ad-free for $14.99 or with ads for $9.99 a month. 

It's comparably priced to the likes of Netflix and Disney+ and with a subscription, you’ll be able to stream all the weekly episodes as soon as they air. You’ll also have access to all of HBO’s library, including shows like Euphoria, the Friends reunion, and the Sex and the City reboot when it airs in December. 

How to watch the 'Gossip Girl' reboot in the UK 

Good news for Upper East Siders who are living across the pond: Gossip Girl is available on BBC iPlayer (opens in new tab)! Currently, the first six episodes are ready for streaming, though it's unclear when part 2 will be ready to go. 

HBO Max is not available in the UK. However, a plus is that BBCiPlayer is free (you’ll need a TV license though) and when it is available you’ll likely be able to binge the whole series, rather than wait for every weekly episode. 

Another silver lining is that they have also picked up the original series, which is coming to the platform at some point this year, meaning you can binge-watch the new and the old versions and really get your Gossip Girl fix.

If you're nostalgic for the 2000s or simply anxious to see what 2021 has in store for the new Constance Billard crowd, November 25 is the time to indulge—which most of us will be doing on Thanksgiving anyway!
