Gossip Girl is back and ready to expose the lives of today’s generation of New York young elites.

HBO Max on Thursday, June 10 dropped the official trailer for the upcoming Gossip Girl reboot. 

The two-minute clip features the queen bees of Constance Billard welcoming a new student into their group. The newcomer then cozies up with one of the girl’s boyfriends and drama ensues. 

“Did you miss me? I know I missed you,” the anonymous blogger, still voiced by Kristen Bell, says in the trailer. In true 2020s fashion, Gossip Girl now runs an Instagram account and uses that to “spy” on the students of the exclusive school.

Frank Ocean’s “Super Rich Kids” plays in the background as the drama is set for the long-hyped reboot.

The new series is set nearly a decade after the original Gossip Girl website was shut down and features a new cast of characters.

The Gossip Girl reboot cast includes Jordan Alexander, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Tavi Gevinson, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Zion Moreno, Whitney Peak, and Savannah Lee Smith.

Joshua Safran, who wrote and executive produced the original series, is showrunner. The reboot was first announced in July 2019.

Prior to the release of the official trailer, Gossip Girl also uploaded several teasers on their social media accounts.

The original Gossip Girl series debuted in 2007 on The CW.  The show, among the biggest on TV when it came out, gave celebrities Blake Lively (Serena van der Woodsen), Leighton Meester (Blair Waldorf), Chase Crawford (Nate Archibald), Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass), and Penn Badgley (Dan Humphrey) their first big TV break.
