Hey, Upper East Siders. It looks like the first trailer for HBO Max’s Gossip Girl reboot is here.
The trailer, which is narrated by the original Gossip Girl, Kristen Bell, introduces each of the main characters sipping cocktails at a party in slow motion (as one does) before they get interrupted by a phone alert from…you guessed it…GG. The trailer also makes sure to highlight Gossip Girl’s signature, unforgettable X’s and O’s.
“You’ve gotten so comfortable,” Gossip Girl says in the clip, “thinking you’re in control of your image, your actions, the narrative that you forgot one thing. I can see you.”
Watch the trailer for Gossip Girl below.
“This extension of the pop culture classic takes us back to the Upper East Side finding a new generation of New York private school teens being introduced to social surveillance nine years after the original blogger’s website went dark,” a press release from HBO Max explains. “[The show] explores just how much social media – and the landscape of New York itself – has changed in the intervening years.”
The reboot is set to star Jordan Alexander, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Tavi Gevinson, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Zion Moreno, Whitney Peak, and Savannah Lee Smith.
Will the reboot live up to the beloved original? That’s one secret I’ll never tell. XOXO, Gossip Girl.
