The Gossip Girl reboot has a familiar face set to return: Kristen Bell! A new batch of New Yorker teens studying in private schools would be introduced to the social surveillance of "Gossip Girl".

The show will also follow the stories of a new generation of NY private school teens who come face-to-face with the infamous "Gossip Girl".

"It's just a new look at this particular society in NY, the idea being that society changes constantly", Safran said about the new series.

A few months back, it was confirmed that the Gossip Girl reboot was, indeed, happening.

Bell walked the red carpet outside the premiere of her new film, Disney's Frozen 2, at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood on Thursday, and she stopped to talk with ET's Keltie Knight about the exciting news that she'd signed on to lend her voice as the show's omniscient narrator once more.

Meanwhile, at the very least we can also look forward to listening to Kristen Bell's snarky, witty commentary on all things within the Gossip Girl universe once the series arrives next year.

Schwartz and Savage will both return as the executive producers of the new "Gossip Girl".

Bell served as narrator on all six seasons of Gossip Girl, which aired from 2007-2012 on the CW across 121 episodes.

As of the time of writing, it's unknown whether any other famous faces from the original - including Blake Lively, Taylor Momsen, Leighton Meester, and Ed Westwick - will make any cameo appearances. Safran described the show as a new look at this particular society in NY. The new series was announced in July with a straight-to-series order. Reactions from fans on Twitter were overwhelming.

Kristen Bell will be the first ever host of the SAG Awards.
