The “Gossip Girl” reboot has a new star. Actress Emily Alyn Lind has been confirmed as a lead on the new HBO Max show.

“Gossip Girl” ran on the CW from 2007 to 2012 for six seasons. The reboot will take place in the same world at the same school, but 12 years after the original series, according to Deadline.

Lind is most well known for her role as Amanda Clarke on ABC’s “Revenge,” but has also played notable roles in CBS’s “Code Black” as Ariel Braeden and the Facebook Watch/Blumhouse series “Sacred Lies.”

She is also from a family of actors. Her mom Barbara Alyn Woods is best known for another teen drama, "One Tree Hill." Her younger sister Alvia Alyn Lind and older sister Natalie Alyn Lind were both in Netflix's "Daybreak" recently.

Movie-goers might recognize Lind from her 2019 role as Snakebite Andi in “Doctor Sleep” alongside Ewan McGregor.

Lind is a lover of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, true crime podcasts and her dogs and apparently “can’t wait to get wrinkles,” according to her Instagram. She also frequently posts pictures of herself behind the scenes while she’s working on set.

Lind shared her excitement about being involved in the project in an Instagram post:

The actress is joined by Whitney Peak, Eli Brown, Johnathan Fernandez and Jason Gotay, all of whom have been confirmed as cast members in the new HBO Max drama, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

In the “Gossip Girl” reboot, Lind will play a character that has been in a longterm relationship and is now curious as to what else is out there. The original series writers and producers, Joshua Safran, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, are already signed on and promise the new series will have more diversity.

“… a more inclusive show, a more queer show, looking at how social media has changed in the 12 years since the original ‘Gossip Girl’…” Safran told THR in December.

Kristen Bell is also returning to once again voice the narrator. Although Safran has confirmed the new series won’t have a secret Gossip Girl that is controlling the lives of teenagers, it will explore how each of us is Gossip Girl “in our own way.”

“…it felt like there was something really interesting about this idea that we are all Gossip Girl now,” Schwartz said, E! News reported in July 2019. “That we are all purveyors of our own social media surveillance state, and how that's evolved, and how that has morphed and mutated and telling that story through a new generation of upper east side high school kids felt like the right time.”

"Gossip Girl" is set to air 10 episodes on HBO Max. A premiere date has not been announced, but the streaming service will launch this summer.
