After two years of leaving Netflix globally, it has been announced that Gossip Girl will return to Netflix again in July 2023.
The series in question is the original series from 2006 that ran for six seasons in 121 episodes. Featuring the talents of Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford, and Ed Westwick, the show followed students at an exclusive New York City boarding school.
Netflix was the global streaming home until January 1, 2021, when it was withdrawn from the service. Now, two and a half years later, the show seems to be making a comeback.

While the show has been removed from Netflix in all regions, there was a single hurdle: Netflix Japan, according to Unog. They list that all six seasons have been airing in Japan since 2018.
Of course, Gossip Girl had been one of the main shows to bolster the HBO Max (now Max-only) lineup and even saw a series reboot (canceled after two seasons) from 2021 which remains a Max exclusive. There have been rumors of another reboot/reunion in recent months.

Unfortunately, only announcements have been made via social media about the show’s return so far, which means we can’t track all regions set to bring the show back.
It’s unclear if Netflix in the United States will receive the show in July 2023. It’s not currently part of the monthly lineup, but it’s worth noting that the show has been licensed to The Roku Channel, so it’s still possible to get there. Watch this space.
The show’s return comes at a time when Warner Bros. Discovery has re-licensed its many shows to combat a slowdown in its streaming service and deal with its mounting debt.
In recent months, we have seen many distributors withdraw their catalogs from Netflix and reopen the licensing spigots. In the United States, that means seeing the return of some of Cartoon Network’s best shows, plus big titles like SMASH and Suits first time graduate. In recent weeks, reports on select HBO content coming to Netflix have surfaced.
That’s all we have for now, but we’ll keep you updated on all the regions set to receive Gossip Girl again as soon as we have it.
