When it comes to inside scoops and spilling tea, no one does it better than the gossip Instagram account, DeuxMoi. And now they’re getting an HBO series!

For those who are unfamiliar with the anonymous account, it has over a million followers on Instagram and deals in all things celebrity, from sightings to relationship rumors—most recently, DeuxMoi actually claimed that Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde were engaged!

Now according to Deadline, the cult-favorite IRL Lady Whistledown is getting its very own HBO Max show, based on the account runner's debut book Anon Pls.

When does the DeuxMoi series come out on HBO?

So far, there is no official release date from HBO Max. However, we do know that DeuxMoi's upcoming novel—described by publishing house HarperCollins as a "fun, charming debut novel that’s a perfect combination of Devil Wears PradaGossip Girl, and Smile and Look Pretty"—will be released on Tuesday, November 8, 2022. 

HBO Max has reportedly given a script-to-series order for the book, so the series will likely come out around the book's release date or after—but we will update when we learn more!

The streaming platform is home to the likes of Euphoria season two and the Gossip Girl reboot, so we already have high hopes for this drama show!

What will the DeuxMoi series on HBO be about? 

As it’s based on Anon Pls, the hour-long drama series will likely cover how the gossip account came to be and how it rose to fame.

The official synopsis of the book reads: “When Cricket Lopez, assistant to one of the most notorious celebrity stylists, revamps her old-style Instagram account and turns it into a celebrity gossip blog on a drunken whim, she never thinks it will become anything. It's just a way to blow off steam after a terrible, terrible day at work where her nightmarish boss screams at her and blames her for some 18-year-old influencer's screw-up. But when the account grows overnight and, even wilder, when she starts getting gossip from fans—juicy gossip— she has to face facts: her Instagram is now famous. She is now famous.” We’re already hooked!

It then goes on to hint at a steamy love interest, a hoard of investors and journalists wanting a piece of the action and the anonymous Gossip Girl-esque character asking themselves: “Is it—the fame, the insider access, the escape from real life—really worth losing everything she has?”

The novel is inspired by real-life events and we can already tell it’s going to make for some very interesting viewing when it hits the screen!
