What, you thought just because Blake Lively and Penn Badgley that meant the end of dramatic wealthy Manhattan teens and the voyeurs who detail every last bit of juice gossip? HBO Max’s sequel to the CW series, now in its second season, takes place at a new private school where a new group of (much more diverse) students get into (much more risqué) scandals of their own making.

Jordan Alexander, Whitney Peak, Tavi Gevinson, Eli Brown, Thomas Doherty, Emily Alyn Lind, Evan Mock, Zión Moreno, Savannah Lee Smith, and Grace Duah star. Kristen Bell reprises her role as the narrator.
