'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!

Leighton Meester Says She Forgets She's Married to Adam Brody When They Film 'Single Parents' Together!

Leighton Meester is talking working with husband Adam Brody on Single Parents!

During a new interview, the 34-year-old actress said that she’s happy that she gets to spend time with her “baby daddy” on- and off-screen.

“He is the baby daddy. In real life and not real life,” Leighton shared with Entertainment Tonight. “Sometimes I’ll be like, ‘Oh yeah, I forgot I’m married to you.’ But it’s been really nice having him here. He’s very much a part of the family.”

On Leighton‘s show Single Parent, Adam plays recurring guest star Derek, who is the ex and baby daddy for Leighton‘s character Angie.

In real life, Leighton and Adam married in 2014 and are parents to four-year-old daughter Arlo. The couple is also expecting their second child.

Leighton went on to say that Adam is nothing like the character he plays on the show.

“On the show, he’s such a little dummy and it’s very cute and he’s very handsome,” Leighton explained. “And in real life that’s 98 percent not true. He’s mostly, totally, like a grown-up.”

'Single Parents' Showrunner Loves Scenes With Leighton Meester & Adam Brody On The Show

Leighton Meester and real life husband Adam Brody could have even more scenes together in the next season of Single Parents, should there be one.

Showrunner J.J. Philbin chatted with ET about the duo’s chemistry on the ABC show.

“I love the weeks when Adam is on set,” she shared. “He and Leighton are the world’s cutest couple and when they’re together, the chemistry is off the charts, which I guess is no surprise, but still — it’s fun to watch!”

J.J. also revealed that should there be another season, Adam‘s character Derek, who is the father of Angie’s, played by Leighton, son, Graham, would be a big part of it.

“The way we ended season two, Derek is even more a part of Angie’s life (and even more of a thorn in Will’s side),” she shared. “So we imagine Derek being a huge part of season three.”

J.J. added, “Honestly, he has become such an important part of our ensemble, we can’t imagine doing the show without him.”

Single Parents airs on Wednesdays on ABC.

In real life, Leighton and Adam are expecting their second child together.
