The first look teaser for the much-anticipated series Gossip Girl, has been released ahead of the series premiere in July on Binge.
Developed by showrunner Joshua Safran, a writer and executive producer on the original series, this extension of the pop culture classic takes us back to the Upper East Side finding a new generation of New York private school teens being introduced to social surveillance nine years after the original blogger’s website went dark. The series is based on the bestselling novels by Cecily von Ziegesar and the original show, developed by Josh Schwartz & Stephanie Savage, which ran from 2007-2012.
Gossip Girl explores just how much social media — and the landscape of New York itself — has changed in the intervening years. The new series stars Jordan Alexander, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Tavi Gevinson, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Zion Moreno, Whitney Peak and Savannah Lee Smith. Kristen Bell returns as the voice of anonymous blogger, Gossip Girl, narrating the lives of a new group of teenagers chasing influence and status through a loyal social following.
