Funny enough, I was on the Upper East Side yesterday and every time I am there, I look around for Gossip Girl filming possibilities. Because I was obsessed with the original series. and have been meh, but excited, about the reboot.
That was until yesterday, when the trailer for Gossip Girl dropped and I have many a conversations with friends over who we think Gossip Girl is and what could be happening.
Developed by showrunner Joshua Safran, a writer and executive producer on the original series, this extension of the pop culture classic takes us back to the Upper East Side finding a new generation of New York private school teens being introduced to social surveillance nine years after the original blogger’s website went dark. GOSSIP GIRL explores just how much social media — and the landscape of New York itself — has changed in the intervening years.
But more important than anything is what did you guys think of the trailer?
