HBO Max's Gossip Girl reboot is shaking up the Upper East Side. The new series premiered on July 8, and while it features some key differences — including the reveal of Gossip Girl in the very first episode — you can rest assured that it still pays tribute to the original series. Throughout the episodes, there are a handful of fun Easter eggs that will get fans very excited, including a few casual name drops and some intentional fashion choices.
Most recently, an original character made a cameo, and it seems like more are coming. "There are more returning characters coming," showrunner Joshua Safran told TVLine. "We haven't closed their deals yet, so I say that with a grain of sand and a prayer, but yes, we're going to have a lot of fun." The cast also guaranteed there will be even more references to the original as the season goes on. While chatting with POPSUGAR ahead of the premiere, Zión Moreno and Savannah Smith both noted that the cameo of Georgina's son in episode four is their personal favorite. Read ahead for all the Easter eggs so far.
