Gossip Girl Trailer heralds a new underdog, a threesome, and great secrets

Gossip Girl found a new Jenny Humphrey guy in the first trailer for HBO Max’s upcoming reboot of the iconic teen soap, which premieres Thursday, July 8th. (More episodes appear weekly.)

In the preview above, the Queen Bees of Manhattan’s Upper East Side greet a new student in their group of friends who cuddles up to one of the girl’s friends. But these teenagers have another problem: “There is a big secret in the ruling class of Constance Billard,” warns the anonymous cover blogger.

“Eight years after the original website went dark, a new breed of New York private school teenagers are being introduced to Gossip Girl social surveillance,” the reboot’s official logline read. “The Prestige series will look at how much social media – and the landscape of New York itself – has changed in the years in between.”

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 six seasons (2007–2012) on The CW, helped launch the careers of Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford, and others. The eponymous gossip was voiced by Kristen Bell, who will repeat her role on the HBO Max series.
