Do we really need a 'Gossip Girl' reboot?

There is reportedly a "Gossip Girl" reboot in the works and fans have mixed feelings about it. The CW show told the story of rich kids living on Manhattan's Upper East Side. The teen drama had a massive following when it aired between 2007-2012. In the age of reboots, it makes sense for the network to attempt to revive the popular show, but some fans argue the ship has sailed and the network should leave the past alone. Would you watch a "Gossip Girl" reboot?

Not everyone is jumping on the "Gossip Girl" reboot bandwagon. Some argue a show about Manhattan's elite is outdated and unnecessary. According to Teen Vogue

It’s already been argued before that Gossip Girl has had its fair share of problematic plot points. For starters, the series seriously lacked in terms of diversity. The first season featured no person of color in the leading cast, and not one plus-size character was ever featured. It also included a sexual assault storyline in which Chuck Bass preyed on young girls and got away with it — largely because he was a rich white man — only to have the show make him out to be a good guy and someone we should root for by the end of the series.
