“Super rich kids with nothing but fake friends…” OMG, someone please stop me because I’ve been listening to this song by Frank Ocean since yesterday. Well, I blame Gossip Girl’s trailer for making me so obsessed with this perfect track. Oh wait, didn’t you know? The show dropped its official trailer yesterday and we’re watching it on loop!
The teaser that released a few weeks ago gave us a sneak peek into the lives of the Upper East Siders and of course, we were intrigued. The die-hard fans of the series had different fan theories and we’re pretty sure that the small clip reminded us of Pretty Little Liars. Well, all the guessing has come to a halt because we have finally got some insight into the show’s plot. Take a look for yourself:
So, Whitney Peak is the new girl in town who’s going to invade Jordan Alexander’s social circle and her love life. Interesting! Well, her not-so-innocent character is giving us quite a mysterious vibe. The trailer also gives the impression that the lead characters, who are childhood friends, have a lot of secrets hidden in their closet. But TBH, we think the reboot is going to stick to its OG theme, at least for the first season, and will be all about who’s dating whom.
BTW, give me an up-five if the fashion show reminded you of Eleanor Waldorf’s iconic New York Fashion Week as well. Apart from all the déjà vu, the one thing that we are loving is that the reboot promises to explore the effects of social media on us. We’re sure that you wouldn’t have missed the fact that the Gossip Girl (voiced by Kristen Bell) is an Instagram handle this time.
Gotta say that we’re looking forward to seeing how the Upper East Siders will handle the influence of the social media world. Can’t wait to unravel secrets from July 8 already!
XOXO, Gossip Girl!
