This year got off to a sad start for fans of Gossip Girl, because the original series has been removed from Netflix.

The reboot is well underway though. Pictures were first shared in November with behind the scenes shots of filming taking place on the iconic steps.

Now you can finally see the official photos and names of the cast and the characters.

The official Instagram account introduced them this weekend, and fans are very excited.

It seems Gossip Girl is staying tight-lipped, because each post only offers a one-word description of the characters personalities. So it looks like they’re keeping you on your toes with the new series.

The cast includes Jordan Alexander as Julien Calloway with “Influence”.
