The upcoming Gossip Girl reboot is one of the most highly-anticipated shows of 2021, and it will be just as strong as its lead characters. After a lot of mystery surrounding this project, we finally know a little bit more about its lineup of intriguing new heroes.
HBO Max unveiled the first look at the new characters on the official Gossip Girl Instagram, showing them in glitzy outfits worthy of the Upper East Side elite. They were captioned by character names and words that capture their essence, such as influence, power, style, and freedom.
The new cast includes Emily Alyn Lind as Audrey Hope, Eli Brown as Otto “Obie” Bergman IV, Thomas Doherty as Maximus Wolfe, Zión Moreno as Luna La, Savannah Smith as Monet de Haan, Jordan Alexander as Julien Calloway, Evan Mock as Akeno “Aki” Menzies, Tavi Gevinson as Kate Keller, and Whitney Peak as Zoya Lot.
According to the show’s official logline, the Gossip Girl revival will follow a new generation of New York private school teens, and it will explore how much the social media and the landscape of NYC changed nearly a decade later.
This series is expected to premiere on HBO Max later this year, but it’s not a direct remake of the original series and simply shares the same universe.
