The Gossip Girl reboot is nearly here, bringing with it an even more glamorous cast than the original.

Tackling the world of influencing and privilege with a 2021 lens, we couldn’t be more ready for an updated version of the beloved series, which first aired in 2007.

With Kristen Bell, the voice of Gossip Girl, being the only actor to reprise her role, there’s a whole cast of characters we cannot wait to meet.
