This new take on a scandalous CW basic is about to premiere on Thursday, July 8. The 2021 Gossip Girl is developed by showrunner Joshua Safran, who was a author and government producer on the unique sequence. That little element is vital. Who else can perceive the difficult scheming important to the Upper East Side higher than an authentic? Set 9 years after the unique Gossip Girl’s (*cough* Dan Humphrey *cough*) web site went darkish, this drama will focus on a brand new era of New York personal faculty teenagers.

HBO Max additionally included new character posters for all 9 of its new leads. So let’s speculate about them wildly.
First up is Jordan Alexander as Julien Calloway. On Gossip Girl’s Instagram Julien was described solely as “influence.” That wide-eyed fake innocence is giving us some severe Serena vibes.
Next up, Eli Brown as Otto “Obie” Bergmann IV. Fittingly his phrase is “privilege.” We’re tempted to go Nate right here, however take a look at that smolder. There are some Chuck Bass undertones occurring.
Thomas Doherty might be taking part in Max Wolfe, a personality recognized by the phrase “freedom.” Max is a bit too completely sizzling to fall into the Dan mildew, so we’re taking a swing right here: Carter Baizen.
Tavi Gevinson is about to play Kate Keller, whose phrase is “ambition.” It’s time for an additional wild swing. What if this season we’re not following a Lonely Boy, however a Lonely Girl? Kate has the vibes of a determined outsider, aka Dan.
Next up is the best character to peg. Or are they? Emily Alyn Lind will play Audrey Hope, recognized by the phrase “grace.” And you couldn’t get extra Blair Waldorf in the event you tried.
That brings us to one of the crucial fascinating characters this season, Evan Mock’s Akeno “Aki” Menzies, outlined by the phrase “innocence.” It can be tempting to label Aki as one other outsider, however there’s one thing to their pure grace. They have cash. Maybe they’re somebody like Eric, form and a part of this world however responsibly distant. Or possibly that innocence is a full-out lie and we’re taking a look at our new Chuck.
And now we’ve discovered our Jenny. Zion Moreno will play Luna La, a personality recognized by the phrase “style.” Look at that pressured pout. This particular person has plans to look at the world burn.
Next up is Whitney Peak who will play Zoya Lott, recognized by the phrase “perspective.” If that doesn’t scream Vanessa, nothing does.
Last however definitely not least is Savannah Lee Smith taking part in Monet de Haan. The phrase? “Power.” Sounds an terrible lot like Blaire Waldorf. Life’s at all times extra enjoyable when you’ve got two queens, particularly after they’re able to battle to the demise.
Altogether Gossip Girl ran for six seasons on The CW the place it turned generally known as one of the crucial controversial teen dramas to ever air. How might it not have that popularity? Its underage characters drank and snorted medication virtually each episode. It wasn’t unusual to look at these youngsters begin relationships with lecturers and their dad and mom’ mates. Also frequent? The present’s pseudo incest. Serena, Dan, Chuck, and Jenny attached and broke up too many occasions to depend, each earlier than and after Lily and Rufus’ wedding ceremony. Basically, this new Gossip Girl can’t be Gossip Girl with out inspiring some pearl clutching. You know we’ll be watching. XOXO.
