We’ve been mourning the end of one of our favourite TV-Shows Gossip Girl, for seven long (and very dreadful) years now, and even though there’s a reboot in the making, we’ve been missing Blake Lively (aka Serena van der Woodsen), on our screens.
Sure, we saw her in films including A Simple Favour and The Shallow, but we’re used to seeing the blonde bombshell (who is expecting her third child with Ryan Reynolds) on TV.
Now, it looks like that void is set to be closed as Blake and Amazon have officially teamed up, and the television and film production company announced that they have signed a first-look overall deal with the actress. Whilst the projects are still on the down-low, there’s one particular show that we’re extremely excited for.
During the TCA summer press tour, Amazon Studios’ head Jennifer Salke said: “It took a long time but we just closed a deal with Blake… and we’re talking and developing a show. It’s not ready. It’s set in New York, there’s a fashion component.”
That’s basically all we needed to reassure us. Given Blake’s natural affinity for compiling killer outfits (she famously doesn’t work with a stylist, preferring to choose her own looks), we’ll be tuning in every week to see what wisdom she dishes out.
Now, find out who the first Arab woman is to judge at the 2019 Venice Film Festival.
