Gossip girl has found a new Jenny Humphrey type in the first trailer for HBO Max’s upcoming reboot of the iconic teen soap that premieres Thursday, July 8th. (Additional episodes are released weekly.)
In the sneak peek above, the queen bees from Manhattan’s Upper East Side welcome a new student into their group of friends enjoying themselves up to one of the girl’s girlfriends. But these teens have another problem to worry about: “There’s a big secret among the ruling class of Constance Billiards,” warns the anonymous titular blogger.
“Eight years after the original site went dark, a new generation of private school teens in New York is being introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl,”
Gossip girl plays Emily Alyn Lind as Audrey Hope, Eli Brown as Otto Bergmann IV, Whitney Peak as Zoya Lott, Thomas Doherty as Max Wolfe, Jordan Alexander as Julien Calloway, Evan Mock as Aki Menzies, Zión Moreno as Luna La, Savannah Lee Smith as Monet de Haan and Tavi Gevinson as Kate Keller.
The original Gossip girl, which aired for six seasons (2007-2012) on The CW, helped start the careers of Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford and more. The titular gossip belly was voiced by Kristen Bell, who will be reproducing her role in the HBO Max series.
