By now, you may already be aware of the Gossip Girl reboot, which started streaming on HBO Max in July 2021, eight years after the original series ended. Though it was met with mixed reviews, the reboot broke the record of most-watched HBO Max series over its launch weekend.
It’s now back for a second season, and scenes will be filmed for it on Wednesday from approximately 4:00am to 6:00pm. Filming is expected to take place at the following locations:
- 5th Avenue between East 81st and 87th streets
- East 83rd Street between Madison and 5th avenues
- East 84th Street between Madison and 5th avenues
- Madison Avenue between East 72nd and 77th streets
If you don’t already have plans, you might consider going for a walk on Fifth or Madison Ave in the 70s and 80s. You never know who you might run into from the new Gossip Girl cast. Here’s your chance to get the advance scoop on the latest prep school drama, secrets, romances, and other trials and tribulations of Gossip Girl’s privileged teens.
Residents who are concerned about any special needs during the filming—such as deliveries, moving, travel, or construction—or who have general questions about the shoot are advised to contact the Locations Department at 929.561.8998.
