Get ready, Upper East Siders! With Gossip Girl taking over the streets of New York City, it won’t be long before this sexy gang of angst-ridden teens take over your television.
Though an official airdate for the HBO Max reboot of the cult drama has yet to be announced, the Gossip Girl gang has been busy shooting the series that is slated to premiere later this year.
OK! can confirm, however, that the new series will be 12 episodes filled with plenty of exciting cameos.
In fact, series showrunner Joshua Safran, writer and executive producer on the original CW series, previously told OK! in an exclusive interview that the team at Gossip Girl is “trying to have cameos in every episode.”
But while Safran and the team are trying to keep some details about special appearances under wraps, cast members including Eli Brown, Emily Alyn Lind, Jordan Alexander, Savannah Smith, Zion Moreno and Whitney Peak are strutting their stuff on set outside The Metropolitan Museum of Arts in New York City.
As OK! was the first to reveal, the latest class of Upper East Siders will be “a mixture of freshman, juniors and seniors,” according to Safran, rather than focusing primarily on one grade level.
Additionally, this Gossip Girl will represent students of all races, cultures and sexual identities. But one thing that they all have in common is their ridiculously good looks.
According to the series showrunner, the reboot will be “edgier” than its predecessor — but a little less racier than HBO’s Euphoria. “There are definitely sex scenes that are a little more edgier than the first time around,” Safran told OK!.

Though we don't know too many details about their characters, judging by the faces on Emily Alyn Lind, Jordan Alexander, Savannah Smith and Zion Moreno, there will be plenty of gossip to go around. The cast features 14 series regulars and up to 20 recurring roles, Safran explains, so the drama will be plentiful.
Eric Daman, who designed costumes on the original Gossip Girl on The CW, is back to style this year's class of high school hotties.

As OK! previously reported, the latest version of Gossip Girl will focus on characters from all different backgrounds. “We are definitely telling stories of the difficulties of being queer in today’s day and age, the difficulties of being Black at a private school with the majority [of] white students,” Safran told OK!. “Those are story details that we look into in the show.”
