*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
The hotly-anticipated reboot of Gossip Girl finally premiered on HBO Max this week, and while the new series follows many of the same formulas as its predecessor, there is one way in which it takes a sharp left turn.
In the original series, fans had to wait six seasons to discover the identity of Gossip Girl. But this time around, many viewers (including us at PureWow) were shocked to discover that the digital rumormonger is disclosed in the very first episode.
The new Gossip Girl (played by Tavi Gevinson) is Kate Keller, a frustrated high school teacher who decides to take matters into her own hands when she realizes that her privileged students hold all the power.
