'Gossip Girl' Turns 13 - Look Back at the Cast at the 2007 Premiere Event!

Can you believe it has been 13 years since Gossip Girl premiered on television?!

The beloved CW series ran for 121 episodes across six seasons and now creators Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz are working on a reboot series for HBO Max.

We decided to take a look back at the show’s premiere event, which took place on September 18, 2007 at the club Tenjune in New York City.

In attendance at the launch party were Blake Lively (Serena van der Woodsen), Leighton Meester (Blair Waldorf), Penn Badgley (Dan Humphrey), Chace Crawford (Nate Archibald), Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass), Taylor Momsen (Jenny Humphrey), Jessica Szohr (Vanessa Abrams), Kelly Rutherford (Lily van der Woodsen), Matthew Settle (Rufus Humphrey), Nan Zhang (Kati Farkas), and Nicole Fiscella (Isabel Coates).

Eric Daman, who was the costume designer on the show, just spoke to Variety about the popularity of the series.

“It’s crazy just how popular the original [series] still is! It’s funny to have all these young kids discovering Gossip Girl with their moms who used to be fans. It’s really awesome to see this resurgence but also the generational difference. I’m like, ‘How is this a retro show?’” he said.

Gossip Girl is currently streaming on Netflix!

Ed Westwick Responds to Backlash from 'Gossip Girl' Fans Who Were Unhappy with His Announcement

Ed Westwick has a message for fans who may have been upset about the announcement that he teased on social media.

The 32-year-old actor teased fans on Sunday and the hint that he gave for his big announcement was “xoxo.” If you’re unaware, “XOXO” was the way the character known as “Gossip Girl” on the series would sign off from her messages.

Most fans assumed that Ed was announcing involvement in the upcoming Gossip Girl reboot, but he instead revealed a line of face masks he created with that Gossip Girl tagline.

Ed took to Twitter to respond to people who were not happy with the announcement. He explained how the purpose of the initiative was to raise money for charity.

“For those of you that are upset about teasing my collection with the design graphic to raise money for @KickItOut: I hope you can check out the charity and learn more about their mission, who they are helping and the impact it will make in our world to combat racism and discrimination. It is important to me to use my platform to spread love, bring awareness to various organizations and do what I can to make a difference. Love, Ed,” he wrote.

Ed added, “While a GG reboot would be a great distraction, this is not the time for distractions. It is important we focus on the issues at hand, and do what we can to help, even if we think it’s something small.”
