Who Will Star in the Gossip Girl Spinoff?
According to Safran, the spinoff will feature a more inclusive cast than the original. "There was not a lot of representation the first time around on the show," he told Vulture. "I was the only gay writer I think the entire time I was there. Even when I went to private school in New York in the '90s, the school didn't necessarily reflect what was on Gossip Girl. This time around the leads are nonwhite. There [will also be] a lot of queer content on this show. It is very much dealing with the way the world looks now, where wealth and privilege come from, and how you handle that."
