Gossip Girl will forever give us the ultimate 2000s nostalgia—it has everything from sex to drama, not to mention all the glamor of the Upper East Side. After nine years, the wait is almost over for the reboot, and prepare yourself GG fans—the new Gossip Girl trailer just dropped.

There's actually an evolutionary reason we can't resist a good gossip TV show, but Gossip girl will always be our number one go-to. Bridgerton, which many called ‘Period drama à la Gossip Girl’, kept us satisfied for a time, but now the reboot trailer is here, it’s all we can think about.

Watch the new Gossip Girl trailer:

The trailer opens to the song ‘Super Rich Kids' by Frank Ocean, which already tells us we’ll be getting all the glitz and extravagance of the OG but with an edgy, modern vibe. The styles and aesthetics of the characters are also next level.

The trailer depicts a new girl being welcomed into the IT group, Constance's royalty, and of course, in classic GG fashion, chaos ensues.

We’re given all the suspense, drama, love triangles, and rivals that made us love the 2000s series so much. It looks as though the first few episodes will mirror the Serena, Blair, and Nate saga. 

As scenes of stolen glances, kisses, conflict and lavish apartments flash by, you suddenly hear it. The haunting voice of Gossip Girl herself (Kristen Bell, reprising her role) as she says: “Did you miss me? I know I’ve missed you.”

As it’s 2021, Gossip Girl now has her very own anonymous Instagram account, where she outs the secrets of the social elite. The trailer then concludes with the iconic line “XOXO Gossip Girl” —we have chills.

The cast of the new series includes Jordan Alexander, Eli Brown, Emily Alyn Lind, Thomas Doherty, Tavi Gevinson, Zion Moreno, Evan Mock, Whitney Peak, and Savannah Lee Smith.

E! also reports that the series is based on the original book series by Cecily von Ziegesar, and the original series. The writer and executive producer of the 00s series Joshua Safran, has returned as the reboot's showrunner, so we have no doubts it will be every bit as good as the first.

Though we’ll miss Serena Van Der Woodson and Blair Waldorf's iconic outfits, Chuck Bass, Nate Archibold, and Dan Humphrey, we cannot wait to binge-watch the new generation of Upper East Siders.

The series drops on HBO Max on the 8th of July.
