Last year, HBO Max had renewed our curiosity (read: obsession) about the happening life of the Upper East Siders with the announcement that Gossip Girl will be making a grand re-entrance in our lives! Since then, our lives have been pretty much about brainstorming about who will be featuring in the reboot and whether *hearts beating wildely* Serena and Dan as well as Blair and Chuck would also be making a comeback to rock our worlds.
While we are still stuck on the fingers-crossed-hoping-like-mad phase for the last query, we do have some happy news- The CW’s upcoming iconic drama, the Gossip Girl reboot has cast a majority of its characters and we are here to spill the beans!
- Emily Alyn Lind
As reported by Deadline, 19-year-old Emily Alyn Lind has been cast as one of the leads in the Gossip Girl reboot. Emily will be playing the character of an upper east sider named Audrey, who “has been in a long term relationship and is beginning to wonder what more could be out there.” Is this the new Serena?
Emily holds an impressive acting career till now- she has appeared in Doctor Sleep, Revenge, The Babysitter, and currently stars in the Facebook Watch show Sacred Lies.
- Whitney Peak
While what character this 17-year-old will play is yet to be disclosed, if you have been a regular The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina fan, you have already witnessed her acting prowess as Judith Blackwood in several episodes of its Season 3. She has also acted in the Academy Award-nominated film Molly’s Game, and is also a competitive dancer.
- Eli Brown
Is someone else getting strong Dan Humphrey vibes from him? This Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists star is the third lead in Gossip Girl reboot and has also worked in Netflix’s Spinning Out and has two upcoming films, The F**k-It List and Run Hide Fight in his kitty.
- Jason Gotay
The 30-year-old is not only blessed with good looks but some top acting prowess too for he is a Broadway actor and even appeared on Peter Pan Live!
- Johnathan Fernandez
The Lethal Weapon fame Johnathan Fernandez has appeared in Girls, Younger, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and has an upcoming film Togetherish. Wanna pitch any ideas as to what character this well-established actor and comedian will be in the Gossip Girl reboot?
Stay tuned for more deets about the upcoming series. Till then, xoxo!
