Blake Lively isn't at tonight's Emmys, but the 10-year anniversary of her appearance at the awards show with her Gossip Girl co-star Leighton Meester was on her mind. The actress posted an Instagram of her and Meester presenting at the event during this year's broadcast. "10 years ago ✖️♥️✖️♥️," she captioned it.

A decade ago, the two attended the after party together too:

The Gossip Girl throwback comes shortly after it was revealed that HBO was rebooting the series for its new streaming service. While the show will have a new young cast, there's a chance Meester and Lively could make guest appearances and reprise their original roles as Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen.

Lively and Meester have expressed an openness to playing the parts again: Meester told E! in May that while she hasn't heard of any reboot happening, "I never say never. So, I don't know. No one's sent me that information, it's coming from you."

Lively, meanwhile, has said multiple times she'd consider playing Serena again. "It sort of all depends," she told Variety in April 2017. "Would I do seven years of the show? No, because it's hard work and I've got my babies, and I don't want to be away from them that much. But I've just learned in life you never say never. I'm looking to do something that I haven't done yet, not something that I did. But would I do that? Who knows—if it was good, if it made sense. We had so much fun shooting and living and working in New York City."
