A brief glimpse of the long-awaited Gossip Girl reboot was caught in an HBO Max sizzle reel.

Gossip Girl remains a somewhat legendary show for its fans. It ran from 2007 to 2012 for six seasons and kept audiences guessing as to the identity of the titular character.

It has a huge cult status among viewers which means that fans are treading very cautiously with the upcoming reboot. The show was delayed earlier this year due of the coronavirus pandemic, meaning that curiosity has been left to fester.

It has been shooting more recently but many are wondering just when we will get the series. Audiences were wondering when we’d even see our first glimpse.

Well, wonder no longer.

If you were hoping for a trailer though, unfortunately, you will be waiting a little while longer. The blink-and-you’ll-miss-it footage comes during a sizzle reel for upcoming shows on HBO Max.

In the short appearance, the cast of the reboot are seen moving across the steps of the MET (The Metropolitan Museum of Art) in New York.

It features Jordan Alexander, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Whitney Peak and Evan Mock.

However, not everything is going to be different as Kristen Bell is expected to reprise her role as the voice of Gossip Girl.

Just what kind of shape the show will take is still unclear. The showrunners on the reboot have said that it will take place in the same universe as the CW hit.

However, it will revolve around a whole new cast of teenagers contending with a new Gossip Girl revealing their secrets.

Bringing the utility of social media in 2020 to the new Gossip Girl is sure to make way for even more explosive revolations this time around though.

The Gossip Girl reboot is expected to premiere in 2021.
