The hit teen drama is back with a new cast and new secrets.


Gossip Girl, the show that put stars like Blake Lively and Penn Badgley on the map, is back. This time on HBO Max, and the highly anticipated season trailer has just been released.

A brief description was released along with the trailer that said:

"Nine years ago, the original Gossip Girl website shut down. But after a new generation of New York's young elite takes control of private school Constance Billard, the notorious blogger remerges as the number one source into their scandalous lives."

And while this trailer only gives a brief glimpse into what drama will unfold within this group of elite high school students, with original Gossip Girl producer Joshua Safran show running the reboot, it's sure to be as juicy as its predecessor.

The main cast comprises actors Jordan Alexander, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Zion Moreno, and Savannah Lee Smith.

An Instagram post from back in December gave a first look at the cast lounging, in typical Gossip Girl fashion, on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

And while the new cast consists of many new faces, one thing that hasn't changed is the voice of Gossip Girl. Kristen Bell is back and will voice the ominous and anonymous title character.

The reboot will begin streaming on HBO Max July 8.

Get ready Netflix fans! The platform just announced that two of its biggest stars are joining together for their newest movie.

Netflix revealed to TODAY that their latest film project is bringing Joey King, from The Kissing Booth, and Chase Stokes, from Outerbanks, together to play the two lead roles.

The new movie is an adaptation based off of the hit young adult sci-fi series Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Rumors about a film adaptation for the series have been circulating since the first novel's release, so Netflix's announcement comes as quite the pleasant surprise for fans.

Netflix had already teased that King was joining the cast for Uglies, however Stokes' involvement in the production was completely unknown until Tuesday. Along with announcing Stokes as the latest addition to the cast, Brianne Tju, from MTV's Scream, and Keith Powers, from the Freeform drama Famous in Love, will also be joining.

Uglies takes place in a dystopian society where beauty standards are taken to whole new extremes. Instead of getting your driver's permit at 16, teenagers are instead forced to get a complete reconstructive surgery, making them absolutely flawless--but that seems to be the flaw.

King is set to play the main protagonist of the film, Tally Youngblood, who will do literally anything to avoid her surgery. The roles of Stokes, Tju, and Powers still have yet to be released.

Uglies will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, also known as McG, and Krista Vernoff is heading the screenplay adaptation. King will be executive producing the film alongside Jamie King, John Fox, and Scott Westerfield himself.

A premiere date for Uglies has yet to be disclosed.
