Spotted: HBO Max GOSSIP GIRL Series Season 1 Overview

The Max Original series GOSSIP GIRL debuts Part One of its 12-episode first season with six episodes premiering weekly, beginning on THURSDAY, JULY 8 (12:01am PT/3:01am ET). Part Two's six episodes will follow this fall.

Developed by showrunner Joshua Safran, a writer and executive producer on the original series, this extension of the pop culture classic takes us back to the Upper East Side to find a new generation of New York private school teens being introduced to social surveillance, nine years after the original blogger's website went dark. The series is based on the bestselling novels by Cecily von Ziegesar and the original show, developed by Josh Schwartz & Stephanie Savage, which ran from 2007-2012 on The CW.

GOSSIP GIRL explores just how much social media - and the landscape of New York itself - has changed in the intervening years. The series stars Jordan Alexander, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Tavi Gevinson, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Zion Moreno, Whitney Peak and Savannah Lee Smith with Todd Almond, Adam Chanler-Berat, Johnathan Fernandez and Jason Gotay.

Episodes include:

Episode 1: "Just Another Girl on the MTA"

Debuts: THURSDAY, JULY 8

The start of a new school year at the Upper East Side's elite Constance St. Jude's ushers in the arrival of a newcomer, who soon finds herself thrust into a blinding spotlight. While other students cling to their comfortable, glamorous lives, a mysterious presence threatens to upend the status quo.

Written by Joshua Safran; Directed by Karena Evans.
