Threesomes, affairs, and backstabbing: the Gossip Girl trailer has it all

The first full-length trailer for the new Gossip Girl reboot brings us back into the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite

Hey Upper East Siders. Dazed Digital here. And we have the biggest news ever. One of our many sources, HBO Max, sent us this: “Spotted at Grand Central, bags in hand: Gossip Girl.” Was it only nine years ago our favourite anonymous blogger mysteriously disappeared for “boarding school”? And just as suddenly, she’s back. Don’t believe us? See for yourselves. Lucky for us, HBO Max sent proof. Thanks for the video, HBO.

Put on your headbands and keep a close eye on your friends, because the Gossip Girl reboot is almost here. Following the appetite-whetting first teaser released a couple weeks ago, the full-length trailer has now dropped and it has everything you could hope for. 

Appropriately set to the soundtrack of Frank Ocean’s “Super Rich Kids”, the trailer offers us a glimpse into the scandalous lives of the next generation of Manhattan’s elite. We see the queen bee, Jordan Alexander’s character Julien, welcome a new student into the fold, only to have her get a little too close to somebody’s boyfriend. But that’s not the only thing the ruling class at Constance Billard have to worry about. Eight years after being shut down by Jenny Humphrey, Gossip Girl herself is back, swapping the website for an Instagram account but keeping the same scandal, secrecy, and social surveillance. 

Also returning from the original is the debauchery, fashion, sex, dramatic glances, slow-mo struts, everyone hooking up with everyone, and steps of the Met. We’ve missed you Gossip Girl. Watch the trailer below and revisit Dazed’s interview with the new cast here. XOXO
