‘Gossip Girl’ reboot shares first look at new cast on set at Met

Gossip Girl hasn’t signed off with her last “xoxo” just yet. In fact, she’s back.

The first images of HBO Max’s upcoming “Gossip Girl” reboot are here, showing a new and more diverse generation of teens lounging on the steps of the Met, just as Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf once did in the early aughts.

The original series aired from 2007 to 2012 on the CW. The soapy look at wealthy NYC teens was a star-maker, launching the likes of Blake Lively, 33, Leighton Meester, 34, and Penn Badgley, 34.

The revival’s stars include Eli Brown, Zion Moreno, Jordan Alexander, Tavi Gevinson, Emily Alyn Lind, Savannah Smith and Thomas Doherty.

Showrunner Joshua Safran, who also executive produced and wrote on the original series, has revealed  that the modernized version of the show will have much more “queer content” than the original, and more diversity among its lead characters.
