After signs that the show had officially begun production in New York City surfaced in December, Gossip Girl is about ready to go into full-on promotional mode. The series first aired in 2007 but has an upcoming reboot that is set to pick up about a decade after the first run. It will follow a cast of fresh faces as social media takes over the private-school social scene. In early chats about the new show, we were all promised queer characters and content — the show lacked quite a bit in its first version — and the time to put up or shut up is soon coming.
According to show executive producer Josh Safran, the new series drops in July. He announced the news while quote tweeting the May/June cover of Cosmopolitan which features ten members of the cast.
There hasn't been a ton of details to be released about the series but we do know that it will feature cameo appearances from the likes of Jeremy O. Harris. In an interview with Man About Town, actor Thomas Doherty said that his character Max Wolfe is pansexual and the show is a mix of the original series and HBO's Euphoria. In a cast announcement, Wolfe was linked with the word "freedom."
The show will join what's been a pretty amazing lineup of LGBTQ+ content from HBO Max. It's a Sin, Legendary, and Veneno were all standout projects, and The Nevers, which is an HBO production that airs on HBO Max, is absolutely piquing our interest.
