Attention Upper East Siders! HBO Max has finally released the first juicy trailer for Gossip Girl season two. Premiering 1 December, the new batch of episodes are set to pick after the explosive events of the season 1 finale – which saw Julian (Jordan Alexander) form an unlikely partnership with Gossip Girl, Monet (Savannah Lee Smith) initiating her plan to become queen of Constance Billard, and Max (Thomas Doherty) entering a throuple with Aki (Evan Mock) and Audrey (Emily Alyn Lind). “It’s the second semester of Junior year, and Gossip Girl is leaving no stone unturned in her effort to control the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite,” reads the synopsis. “She’s learned a thing or two from her first go-round – namely what her audience wants, they shall get.
It’s time for her to turn the heat up on what’s been simmering. “Old enemies, new allies, constantly shifting sands – this semester, there can only be one queen, and by the end of the school year, everyone will know where the bodies are buried, and just who was holding the shovel.” In addition to shocking hookups, jaw-dropping betrayals and devastating breakups, the trailer also teased the return of original Gossip Girl star Michelle Trachtenberg as the infamous yet lovable villain, Georgina Sparks. “Did you know that you have four weak points of entry and a very pliable super?” Georgia asks a shocked Kate Keller (Tavi Gevinson) after breaking into her apartment.
Gossip Girl season two will also see the return of Whitney Peak as Zoya, Eli Brown as Obie, Zíon Moreno as Luna, Jonathan Fernandez as Nick, Adam Chanler-Berat as Jordan, and Laura Benanti as Kiki.
