Difficult start for HBO Max
When a continuation of “Gossip Girl” was announced in March 2020 at the streaming provider HBO Max in March of this year, long-time fans overjoyed. Because of the corona virus, the shooting is on hold. At “Vulture”, HBO Max boss Kevin Reilly (58) said: “Production has not yet started. The preparations were finished and we were ready to start. ”Because of the corona pandemic, being unable to shoot at the moment was“ really disappointing ”for him. Reilly therefore has no more precise information than the year 2021 ready for the fans.
This continues the ruined start of the streaming provider HBO Max, which starts in the United States on May 27. The new edition of "Friends" already had to be postponed. According to "Variety" , at the end of summer it could still be so far that at least the shooting got the green light. In Europe, the offer should also start from 2021, but with restrictions: In Germany, "Gossip Girl", like "Game of Thrones" before, could only be seen through the exclusive partner Sky.
