The long-awaited and super-hyped HBO Max reboot of Gossip Girl is mere months away, slated to hit the streaming network in summer 2021. The show appears to be updated for our new reality—the cast is much more diverse, but the prep school uniforms remain, made contemporary for a modern audience. And while the fashion is no doubt going to inspire Gen Z trends, will the characters? Will they delight viewers the same way Blair Waldorf and crew captivated in the late ‘00s?
Who knows! The official Instagram account for the reboot did share images, names, and one-word descriptions for each character over the weekend, like they are Bachelor contestants or something, so you be the judge.
