Now that Gossip Girl is officially getting its reboot at going off the air in 2012, many fans are wondering if Kristen Bell will be reprising her role as the narrator. In an interview with E! News, she seemed like she’s ready to get back in the game, but still kept mum on if she’ll be returning.
“Maybe,” she said, “I’ll never tell.”
Just in case Bell is busy, she did offer one potential name to fill her place.
“James Earl Jones. It’s gotta be, yeah,” she added.
This week HBO Max announced that it has a reboot for the series in the works, picking up 10 hour-long episodes. It’s unclear if any of the original cast members will return as it sounds like the new series will have a new group of New York teens to stir up drama.
“Eight years after the original website went dark, a new generation of New York private school teens are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl.” reads a plot description. “The prestige series will address just how much social media—and the landscape of New York itself—has changed in the intervening years.”
Since rumors of a Gossip Girl reboot have been swirling for years, Leighton Meester recently addressed the idea of her own character, Blair Waldorf, making a return.
“No one’s ever asked me,” she told E! News back in May. “No one’s ever talked to me about it except for in interviews and I always say the same: I never say never, so I don’t know. No one’s sent me that information, it’s coming from you.”
A lot has changed in a few months, but for now we’ll just have to keep pestering the old cast for more clues.
