Gossip Girl Reboot Shooting in the City

(released 3/3/2021)


You may have seen film shoot signs around the city for "The Bad Witch" back in November and December.  With COVID restrictions slowly lifting, production is back and they are springing up again.  We ran across them on the Upper West Side this week.

On Tuesday, March 2nd, the production was working out of Clifton House on West 79th.

We found out that "The Bad Witch" is the name of the first episode of this series. The show is actually the reboot of Gossip Girl.  It is being produced by North Center Productions and Patch Bay Productions running out of Silvercup Studios. It will be distributed on the HBO Max streaming service.

The storyline takes place eight years after the original series ended.  Different characters are used, but New York private school teens are still the subject.

Leading the show are Kristen Bell (narrator), Whitney Peak, Eli Brown, and Emily Alyn Lind along with Jordan Alexander, Thomas Doherty, Evan Mock, Zion Moreno, Savannah Smith, Jason Gotay, Adam Chanler-Berat, and Johnathan Fernandez.

Here are some shots and clips from the set on Tuesday. For reference, it was 34° F with a wind chill of 25°.
