If you’ve spent hours aimlessly scrolling through TikTok recently, then you probably already know about this latest trend. The “Tell Me…Without Telling Me” TikTok challenge has taken over the video-sharing platform in recent weeks and has been applied to films, TV shows, music and really everything in-between.
Now, Ed Westwick is challenging Gossip Girl fans on TikTok. This week, the actor put on a suit and tie and brought back Chuck Bass to ask fans of the series, “Tell me you’ve watched Gossip Girl without actually telling me you’ve watched Gossip Girl.”

It’s been more than eight years since Gossip Girl fans said goodbye to the group of friends from the elite Manhattan prep school. However, viewers will be returning to the Upper East Side soon for the Gossip Girl reboot. Filming for the reboot is currently underway and is expected to air on HBO Max sometime this year.
According to Harper’s Bazaar, the new series is picking up right where the original show left off.
“Eight years after the original website went dark, a new generation of New York private school teens are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl. The prestige series will address just how much social media—and the landscape of New York itself—has changed in the intervening years.”
