One of the most popular TV youth dramas of all time returns after a nine-year absence from screens, tracking the trials and tribulations of a whole new batch of glamorous young New Yorkers.

Read on to find out how to watch Gossip Girl 2021 online from anywhere in the world.

Based on the novel series of the same name written by Cecily von Ziegesar, the original series made household names of the likes of Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Taylor Momsen as it followed the roller coaster romances and dramas of Manhattan's young elite.

This new series doesn't look set to feature the original cast however, with a new group of over-privileged Gen Z New Yorkers living in a post-pandemic Upper East Side, with more inclusive plot lines that tackle LGTBQ issues and the perspectives of POC.

One O.G. star that is returning however, is Kristen Bell who is back as the narrator and voice of the titular "Gossip Girl" once more.
