Come on, who didn’t wear designer wardrobes accentuated with shining gold jewelry while sauntering around high-end cocktail lounges in high school?
The trailer for “Gossip Girl’s” July 8 reboot on HBO Max certainly touches all the “must be nice” categories of life for private school, aristocratic teenagers who are scions of the Upper East Side’s elite.
It appears there will be inspiration from the CW show along with the novel series written by Cecily von Ziegesar.
But many of the actors cast to play these preppy high school frenemies are actually old enough to be their teachers.
This class of 2021 consists of: Julien Calloway (Jordan Alexander, 27), Aki Menzies (Evan Mock, 24), along with other currently unidentified characters played by Zion Moreno, 26, Thomas Doherty, 26, Tavi Gevinson, 25, and Eli Brown, 21.
The roles of Audrey Hope and Zoya Lott will also be donned by Emily Alyn Lind, 19, and Whitney Peak, 18, respectively.
One familiar face returning to production is original “Gossip Girl” executive producer, Joshua Safran, who is developing this next generation of youth known for social media fiendishness.
If the trailer is any indicator, get ready for a summer of Manhattan spoiled brats doing things extremely impractical for their age while lounging around exclusive speakeasies, drinking what’s to be assumed to be virgin cocktails.
As far this reboot goes, we don’t know if we love you yet, xoxo.
