Yesterday, the first trailer for the Gossip Girl reboot landed and shortly after, a bunch of lucky journos copped the first few eps and their reviews are in, babeyyy.

The general consensus of the reviews for the HBO Max reboot is that it’s brimming with “soft porn,” which isn’t too dissimilar from the OG, to be honest. Remember Serena and Nate’s epic rendezvous at the wedding in season 1?

Page Six reports that there’s a “string of scenes” that are best described as “soft porn,” and lucky for those dying for the details, they’ve even revealed who the scenes involve.

Apparently in the first few eps of the new Gossip Girl, a character by the name of Audrey Hope (Emily Alyn Lind) is seen being “pleasured” by another student in the middle of a club that they’d snuck into. As this is happening, she’s eyeing off another bloke she’s keen on and go sip, girl ;).

Then, in another scene, a student named Max Wolfe (played by Thomas Doherty, who you’ll remember from Zoe Kravitz’s High Fidelity plus the Disney fam), is seen making out with a gal while simultaneously being fondled by a guy and believe me when I say: we love to see it.

There are also scenes filmed in male bathhouses, according to the publication.

This shouldn’t be too hard to believe ‘cos for one thing, as I wrote earlier, the OG Gossip Girl was horny as hell so ofc they’re going to carry that theme into the reboot (otherwise don’t bother, TBH).

And also, if you watched the first trailer, you’d have seen that it’s an absolute fuckfest and we can’t bloody wait.

It’s also worth noting that Page Six’s report included tea from a source who thought the reboot is “trying too hard” and Blair Waldorf, dat you?

“I feel that this new iteration is trying too hard,” they said. “They’re ruining something that’s classic, and at the same time, hyper-sexualizing these young actors in particular, which is really quite offensive.”

Alongside the aforementioned stars, we have Jordan Alexander as Julien Calloway, Savannah Lee Smith as Monet de Haan, Evan Mock as Akeno Menzies and Zión Moreno as Luna La.

Gossip Girl will premiere July 8 on Binge.
