HBO Max announced today that Gossip Girl has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes midway through the drama's freshman run, which is currently on hiatus until November.

Since its July premiere, the show has become the streaming service's best launch for an original drama this year. Along with record viewership during its opening weekend, it has also been a trending hit on popular social media platforms.

The new Gossip Girl is an extension of The CW's pop culture classic based on the bestselling novels by Cecily von Ziegesar. This rebooted version follows a new generation of Upper East Siders who are introduced to unwanted social surveillance almost a decade after the original blogger's site went down. Gossip Girl is back and she's badder than ever - and no secrets are safe.
