The first six episodes of the new version of GOSSIP GIRL are now available on HBO Max. GOSSIP GIRL will return with new episodes in November with the second part of its first season.
After almost a decade of waiting, the new version of GOSSIP GIRL returned to tell us the best gossip about Constance Billard's new students. The spaces that were once occupied by characters that became icons such as Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively), Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) and Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester), today are full of new stories and scandals with the arrival of new characters that have been responsible for stirring us up in recent weeks, such as Julien Calloway (Jordan Alexander), Zoya Lott (Whitney Peak), Obie Bergmann (Eli Brown) and Max Wolfe (Thomas Doherty), among others.
However, in the first six episodes of this first season, it turns out that the rivalry between Blair and Serena was resolved in the first version. Today, GOSSIP GIRL has captured us with totally renewed characters that promise us emotions, fun, secrets and love just as intensely as in the original series.
Meet the new upper east siders that are part of this story and relive or enjoy for the first time, all the episodes of the first part of this season:
Played by Jordan Alexander, JC is Constance Billard's queen bee. She is not only well known, "she has influence", as she herself expressed in one of the first episodes of the series. Julien is a privileged young woman with many followers on social media, but she has lost her focus and her essence along the way on what is really important: those around her.
MONET DE HAAN
Savannah Lee Smith plays Monet de Haan, a young strategic, power-loving, public relations fanatic, who takes it upon herself to advise JC in order to position her as a prominent influencer on the Upper East Side. Based on what we've seen so far, Monet has no qualms about doing whatever she has to do to achieve her goal. In fact, she has been one of the most reluctant to accept Julien's younger sister into her select group of friends.
Z is the epitome of innocence and has become the center of controversy in Julien's group of friends. Actress Whitney Peak has taken it upon herself to convey to us, through Zoya, what it feels like to be an outsider among the Upper East Side elite.
Zión Moreno plays Luna La, the queen of style, class and – at times - of cynicism among Constance's most popular students. Luna is not one of those who bets on a single player, she prefers to be an ally of the winners ... and although until now she has been a faithful supporter of Julien, things may change if Zoya manages to be equal or more relevant than her sister, JC .
Nobility, in heart and in title, are represented by Otto Bergmann IV, Obie. A young man who, although he has lived a life full of privilege, has altruism as one of his most prominent features. This has earned him two of New York's most coveted hearts: Julien's and his sister Zoya’s.
Max's rebellious heart found in Thomas Doherty the ideal person to play him. Max is the living representation of freedom and, in addition to being the boy without labels or limits, he is also capable of becoming the black sheep of the series, or simply a lost sheep.
Emily Alyn Lind plays Audrey, the model young lady whose main characteristic is elegance. For the first few episodes Audrey has tried to deal sensibly with her family dramas. However, in the end she herself is caught up in a whirlwind of emotions because of Wolfe, a temptation hard to ignore that has made her question her stable relationship with Aki and the unexplored territories of her love life.
AKENO MENZIES - AKI
Aki - or should we call him Switzerland? - is in charge of seeing life in an objective and simple way ... something unusual for the hectic daily life of this group of Upper East Siders. Evan Mock is the talented Hawaiian actor in charge of reflecting the peace that Akeno transmits to us. However, he also conveys to us the doubts and the journey into the unknown that his character makes when he realizes that, although he loves his girlfriend Audrey, perhaps he is also curious about his friend Max Wolfe.
GOSSIP GIRL will return in November with the last six episodes of the second part of its 12-episode first season. Developed by showrunner Joshua Safran, screenwriter and executive producer of the original series, this extension of the pop culture classic takes us back to the Upper East Side as a new generation of New York private school teens are introduced to social surveillance nine years after the original blogger's website went dark. The series is based on Cecily von Ziegesar's best-selling novels and the original series, developed by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, which aired between 2007 and 2012 on The CW.
Tune in to HBO Max to see all the episodes, to relive the best moments from the first part of this season of GOSSIP GIRL and to find out the best gossip before the launch of the second part of the first season.
