    The "Gossip Girl" Reboot Finally Has A Release Date And A Teaser Trailer, And I'm So Excited


    Hello, Upper East Siders! You might have been minding your business today, preparing for Memorial Day Weekend — but Gossip Girl's here to blow your mind.

    After months of anticipation, we finally have a teaser trailer AND release date for HBO Max's Gossip Girl reboot:

    The secret is out. New episodes of Gossip Girl will be available to stream July 8 on HBO Max. See you on the steps. XOXO.

    ICYMI, here's an official description of the new series: Eight years after the original website went dark, a new generation of New York private school teens are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl. The prestige series will address just how much social media — and the landscape of New York itself — has changed in the intervening years.

    I have to admit, I don't think I realized how ~excited~ I would feel just hearing Kristen Bell's iconic voice narrating the trailer.

    Me: *On the floor*

    The reboot officially comes to HBO Max on July 8 — which is just a little bit more than a month away! And while the Sidekick phones have been upgraded to iPhones and social media is ~way~ more prominent, this clip is already giving us the Gossip Girl vibes we know and love.

    I am personally obsessed with the X O X O motif throughout the entire clip.
