the new york times

Most of us remember the days of Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf, strutting across our screens. We were OBSESSED with Gossip Girl, it took over our lives.

From the romance between Blair and Chuck Bass, to the big reveal of who the secret character behind the mayhem was; it had us hooked.

Now, a reboot of The CW series may be coming to our screens, an executive producer has revealed. Stop the world, we're getting off. This is major goss…

Yup, that's right. We're going right back to the Upper East Side, and discussions have reportedly taken place about bringing the original drama back.

The series starred Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Ed Westwick and Penn Badgley, and aired from 2007 until 2012. Let's not forget that none other than Kristen Bell narrated it too.

The show followed the glamorous (not to mention absurd) lives of a group of upper-class teenagers living in the prestigious areas of Manhattan.

The trends it inspired are still around today, it had an unprecedented amount of influence on the youth who tuned in to watch it.

Gossip Girl was a massive hit for the American TV network The CW, and president Mark Pedowitz has confirmed it could get a reboot.

According to Deadline, he said: “There’s been discussions. But I don’t know if we’re there yet.”

Pedowitz also added that the return would depend on Warner Bros., who own The CW, and showrunners Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz.

We've seen all 121 episodes about a million times, but my GOD we want more.

The reigning queen of daytime talk TV, Ellen DeGeneres, has spoken about the future of her hugely popular show while out promoting her upcoming Netflix stand-up special, Relatable.

In an interview with The New York Times, the comedy star speaks about her desire to return to acting one day, and maybe even play an 'unappealing' role for once. SOB.

The infamous host evidently wants to explore more of her own personality, as opposed to continuing with her sixteen-year long programme, The Ellen Show.

One of the reasons why Ellen may need a bit of a breather from her show is most likely because of her ultra-nice reputation, which might refrain her from showing other parts of her emotional range;

“The talk show is me, but I’m also playing a character of a talk-show host. There’s a tiny, tiny bit of difference," she says.

She comments on how she can't do anything even slightly rude, no matter the circumstances, as everyone expects her to show her sunny side constantly, or else to break into dance…

She can't even beep a pedestrian who walks out in front of her car, even if it's just the Biebs prancing around in the snow:

Her show rarely has anything negative or serious, unless she's mentioning tragedies or natural disasters taking place in America or around the world for humanitarian efforts.

In fact, she almost didn't extend her contract until 2020- imagine, a world without her show? We just can't.

She discusses the different stances which her brother and wife Portia De Rossi take on the future of her talk show.

Vance believes that his sister needs to remain the beacon of light and hope until at least the current US President resigns (they need her, so badly), whereas Portia thinks her wife should explore other creative outlets;

“I just think she’s such a brilliant actress and standup that it doesn’t have to be this talk show for her creativity. There are other things she could tackle.”

There must be a ridiculous amount of pressure on Ellen's shoulders, the world would potentially shut down if she even uttered a curse word.

We hope she doesn't leave our screens too soon, but Ellen would undoubtedly go on to even greater projects- she's clearly got talent in any role she takes on.

Her anticipated stand-up show Relatable which streams on Netflix on December 18.
