HBO Max has released the first look teaser and character posters for the highly anticipated series Gossip Girl, ahead of the series premiere on Thursday, July 8.

“You’ve gotten so comfortable, thinking you’re in control. Of your image, your actions, the narrative. That you forgot one thing – I can see you. And before Im through, I’ll make sure you’ll see you too. XOXO” Is the narration to the cocktail club scene to the salacious trailer for the 2000’s cult classic reboot that ensures that all the drama will remain.

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 on The CW.

Gossip Girl explores just how much social media — and the landscape of New York itself — has changed in the intervening years. The series stars Jordan Alexander,Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Tavi Gevinson, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Zion Moreno, Whitney Peak and Savannah Lee Smith.
