Will Gossip Girl be slapped repeatedly and told to STFU?
That would be worth watching.

I really can’t believe in this day and age they didn’t pick a more gender neutral name for this show? Maybe Gossip They/Them?

I wish the guys were hotter and what's up with the bald chick, but I like that they brought back Veronica Mars to do GG's voice.

After Elite, ever high school show that doesn’t reach that level of beauty and sexual appetite should just go fuck itself and be done with it.

R4 The whole show will be gayer, but the guys aren't the best looking maybe the non white one is. The hairline on the white guys though..

Why are we separating the white males from the non white male? They’re all male cast members.

R8 the white ones aren't on the same level with the asian looking one. They didn't choose hot white guys for those roles.

I heard there will be a gay male character who is dating a girl but struggling with his sexuality. Hope it's true.

Hairline proof. They look a lot older than the asian one.

Who cares who is gay? Y’all act like the original didn’t have a gay character. He just wasn’t a part of the main group, which rings truer than having a gay be besties with those straight dudes.

R17 The two white guys aren't hot apparently and look old. And an aging white gay feels personally attacked because someone doesn't find the two white guys attractive.

R18 The Latina character is being played by a trans actress. DK if that'll be the character too
|by Anonymous||reply 21||05/29/2021|
The blasian doesn’t look bi because he has pink hair. A lot of young guys do shit like that now.
The closeted one is most likely the one with the bald chick taking the selfie and then looking away and looking at the other white guy from afar.
The teaser shows more than you’re noticing.
|by Anonymous||reply 22||05/29/2021|
R21 she looks trans.
|by Anonymous||reply 23||05/29/2021|
R22 not bi because of the hair, but he held eye contact with the gay guy. and With other trailers, for like Elite, they sometimes let you know what's up. Like the S4 trailer of Elite, they show a lesbian pairing even before one girl is even introduced.

Zion Moreno is a transgender actress. As R21 noted, we don’t know if her character will be trans as is the character she played on Control Z.

I thought the teaser was good. It was fun to hear Kristen Bell's voice again. I was judging this based on the stills from filming, but now seeing that cast all polished up, the aesthetic, and hopefully a little HBO level raunch, this could be good. I'll definitely be watching.

[quote]I don’t think anyone is ugly.
The only sort of good looking guy is the white one in the middle in the group shot. The asian one is ugly and the guy apparently playing the Lonely Boy is way worse than Penn Badgley was. The original cast had only one not-that-handsome person and that was Ed Westwick. He was charming in other ways, though, and I'm sure these new guys are as well but I'm still reacting to the way they uglified the cast this time.
It reminds me of the Mass Effect Andromeda game where they deliberately made the main characters not traditionally beautiful or handsome, unlike the original trilogy which e.g. used a male supermodel as the model for the main character. I assume they were trying to make a statement by making the characters half-ugly but it just ended up annoying the hell out of me. I'm not handsome myself and I'd never want to watch something that had people like me in the main cast. There's a reason most stars are people with symmetrical faces, they just are so pleasant to look at. It's not real life and that's the point of Hollywood.
BTW, apparently the guys were practically all bisexual in the novels. I remember people being pissed they made Nate Archibald and Chuck Bass totally straight in the show.

The BLASIAN is beautiful
|by Anonymous||reply 31||05/29/2021|
The bald headed Serena or Blair is better looking than I thought all glammed up. I don't think I would even think about the latina chick being trans if it weren't being talked about. Maybe as the show goes on but not based on the teaser. The boys are beat looking, but the blasian is definitely a pretty boy. The girls are hotter than the boys where I think the reverse was true in the original. The girls were attractive but the guys were stunning.
|by Anonymous||reply 32||05/29/2021|
None of the guys were stunning in either version. Chase Crawford is so overrated it’s scary. He’s basic looking.
|by Anonymous||reply 33||05/30/2021|
Chase Crawford, Penn Bagley, and even Ed Westwick were so hot the first few seasons. Chase Crawford just represents all American, clean cut hotness, which is a dying breed. He's not covered in tats, etc. The guest stars that would come on were also very handsome me.

What does hot "basic" mean these days? Too white, no tats or piercings? The good news is that with all the white shaming these days and trashy gen z weirdness, basic is now the exotic standout. It's getting harder to find a hot, clean cut, smooth, athletic white guy with a cut dick that it's becoming more desirable than before.

It's likely Aki (played by Evan Mock) is bi or gay. An article stated Aki is still "figuring things out sexually". Hopefully that means he's figuring out his sexuality.
|by Anonymous||reply 39||05/30/2021|
R38 Calm your ass down. Do those white guys look athletic to you, let alone hot? Calling two white guys basic isn't dismissing the millions of hot white guys out there. It's just that these 2 guys aren't it. The biracial guy isn't the hottest thing out there, but he does seem to be higher up on the looks than the two other guys

I'm excited! I am very skeptical but there was a ton of guy on guy action packed into that, including deep french kissing. The production value looks much higher than the original, so it will have the HBO touch! The black girl is the little J and the bald headed girl is the queen cunt. I think all the men are gay or bi based on the preview. The trans girl is totally passable. I don't think you know unless it was noted.

That 3-way within the first 30 seconds was hot! Do you think we'll get ass? They all say that there is a major, shocking in the first episode. Is it that we find out that one of the girls is trans. That's been pretty open and we also know GG now takes the form of IG, so that's not the surprise. This looks like a Euphoria/Elite mashup. I hope they do go darker with this one. Josh Schwartz does this world well and to have such a bigger budget should provide a lot of good lifestyle porn.
|by Anonymous||reply 50||06/12/2021|
I wonder if the kissing is more realistic here than Love Victor because the actors playing the gay characters are models. Whether they are gay or not, they are surrounded by gay men. Who knows... they might have even used the castin couch. Either way, I think the fact that it's on HBO Max is a good thing. They can push the limits.

Good to see that this will be pretty gay but hopefully this show isn't going to be too woke
|by Anonymous||reply 53||06/16/2021|
R53 think that ship has sailed. All this new version seems to be about is ‘queer’ sexuality & political signalling. The original show used sex and fashion as a symbolic way to talk about privilege, the way THE SOPRANOS used interpersonal violence and food as a symbolic way to talk about power.
|by Anonymous||reply 54||06/16/2021|
Uh, of course it's going to be "woke". It's about young characters in the US who are rich and queer. Like, was there ever any doubt in that?
If woke triggers you, then this show isn't for you. It's not aimed at "get off my lawn!" old creeps who think a show about today's promiscuous teens should reflect some old, outdated stereotype values.
|by Anonymous||reply 55||06/16/2021|
Woke is annoying as fuck, BUT I believe this cast for rich New York kids of today. They don't have the old money UES/UES private School vibe of the first cast, but times are changing. They are more Blue Ivy and North West than Vanderbilt or Waldorf, which is a different take.
I can't begrudge Gen Z of getting to have actualized gay characters who kiss and have sex. All the boys seem gay or pan and all the girls are of color (but they are too light skinned says twitter!!!!!)). It looks good. Enough Dlers are watching Cruel Summer, so hopefully will have some good thread when GG 2.0 comes out. I think there will be buzz.

Cannot wait for the fallout when Zoomer fans of the show decide to investigate the first version of the show.
They’ll get to the end of episode one and have to stop because they’re so TRAUMATISED by all the privilege and whiteness and lack of sexual boundaries!
