Written and developed by Joshua Safran and based on the novels of Cecily von Ziegesar, Gossip Girl 2.0 provides a fresh perspective on the same privileged universe. There’s a more diverse clique of well-to-do students here, but occupying the same Upper East Side world that Serena and Blair presided over a decade ago. And they’re even more susceptible to Gossip Girl’s brand of scandal, who now utilizes an anonymous Insta account to air the student’s dirty laundry.

Of the original cast, Kristen Bell returns to voice the eponymous antagonist, while the new kids on the Met Steps include fashion-forward influencer Julien Calloway (Jordan Alexander), her philanthropic beau Otto “Obie” Bergmann IV (Eli Brown), Max Wolfe (Thomas Doherty), and Zoya Lott (Whitney Peak) – Julien’s half-sister and an outsider to this tight-knit group.

Also starring Zión Moreno, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock and Savannah Smith, this reboot promises a pleasingly eclectic range of storylines, at least one big twist, and HBO-levels of licentiousness. Keep reading for our guide on how to watch Gossip Girl online now, and prepare to enjoy some shocking revelations with your friends.
