Here's a secret we can tell: Gossip Girl reboot is coming real soon.

If you missed your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite, then worry not because Gossip Girl is returning on July 8 on HBO Max.

Like the original series from The CW, the new iteration of Gossip Girl is based on the book by Cecily von Ziegesar, and it follows "a new generation of New York private school teens" 

"The prestige series will address just how much social media—and the landscape of New York itself — has changed in the intervening years," the show's official description said.

The reboot stars Emily Alyn Lind as Audrey Hope, Eli Brown as Otto Bergmann IV, Whitney Peak as Zoya Lott, Thomas Doherty as Max Wolfe, Jordan Alexander as Julien Calloway, Evan Mock as Aki Menzies, Zión Moreno as Luna La, Savannah Lee Smith as Monet de Haan, Tavi Gevinson as Kate Keller.

But some exciting news here: Kristen Bell reprises her role as the narrator and mysterious blogger. In the trailer, she can be heard warning New York's elite saying, "You've gotten so comfortable thinking you're in control, of your image, your actions, the narrative but you forgot one thing—I can see you. And before I'm through I'll make sure you see me too. You know you love me. XOXO."

Joshua Safran, the original writer and executive producer of the original series, returns as the showrunner. While Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage joins again as executive producers.

The original Gossip Girl starred Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick, and more. It ran for six seasons from 2007 to 2012.

Take a look at the teaser trailer below. XOXO.
