As much as a Gossip Girl reboot has us ready to fish out our headbands and flip-phones, replacing the main cast is the biggest #fail we've ever heard of.
No matter how good any actress/actor may be, originals shouldn't be recast. #NotSorry.
Hopefully, this is all ~rumour~ and not fact, but since Girl Meets World is ending after season 3, reports from Gamenguide are that Rowan Blanchard and Sabrina Carpenter could star as the new Serena and Blair...
“Rowan Blanchard and Sabrina Carpenter from Girl Meets World might be topbilling the Gossip Girl reboot. With the impending series finale, Rowan Blanchard and Sabrina Carpenter are both left with no series to work on," they wrote.
"The fans are already comparing Rowan Blanchard and Sabrina Carpenter to the original Gossip Girl ladies, Leighton Meester and Blake Lively. Showrunners for Gossip Girl reboot have yet to confirm if the project will push through.”
Ily Rowan and Sabrina, but #no.
Gossip Cop has thankfully shut down the claims, saying that it is not at all confirmed, and there are no show-runners tied to the project even stating that it "does not exist".
We would rather no reboot over having the OG cast replaced.
