Dear Gossip Girl fans, you just might have another nostalgia-packed hit headed your way. According to reports, the team that brought all the drama (and style) in the reboot of the popular book series is now working to revamp Sweet Valley High in a similar vein for CW.
Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz are working on an adaptation of the wildly successful young adult fiction series first published in 1983 by Francine Pascal. Pascal’s books documented the highs and lows of identical twin sisters Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield as they navigated the trials and tribulations of high school.
Does this TV series sound familiar? That’s because the mid-1990s yielded an earlier adaptation, starring real-life twins Brittany and Cynthia Daniel.
This latest iteration is reportedly simply titled Sweet Valley and, with more than 181 Sweet Valley High books published, you can expect a rich tapestry of plot twists, teen angst and drama.
Savage and Schwartz were also showrunner’s for the CW’s Nancy Drew reboot.
