Zion Moreno is bringing the X’s and O’s this July…
HBO Max has dropped the first teaser trailer and poster art for the Gossip Girl reboot, starring the 28-year-old Mexican American actress/model, and set a premiere date of July 8 for the show.
The teaser promises to deliver Gossip Girl’s usual sultry shenanigans but all now set in the smartphone era, where beautiful influencers carefully police their image on social media. Not that our narrator cares much for how her contemporaries project, as she makes clear in the trailer message, which she ends with her famous signature.
“Thinking you’re in control of your image, your actions, the narrative. But you forgot one thing: I can see you. And before I’m through, I’ll make sure you see me too. XOXO,” says our New York gossip queen.
In addition to Moreno, who portrays Luna, the series also stars Jordan Alexander, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Tavi Gevinson, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Whitney Peak and Savannah Lee Smith. The poster is each emblazoned with either an X or an O.
Gossip Girl is produced by Fake Empire and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Studios. The series is written, executive produced and was developed by Joshua Safran of Random Acts.
Karena Evans directs two episodes, and original costume designer Eric Daman rejoins the series.
Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage created and ran the original series. They also serve as EPs on the reboot.
