It is currently unclear whether any of the original cast members will return for the reboot.

The news comes exactly a week after Chace Crawford, who played Nate on the series, said he would not mind the show returning for another run as an eight-part season on a TV streaming service.

However, the actor said the potential show should come back as a reboot with new characters rather than original stars reprising their roles.
