Nastia treated her 1 million fans on Instagram to an eyeful this week when the 31-year-old star donned a chic black lace bodysuit to celebrate the return of the popular CW drama, formerly starring Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Penn Badgley.

“Who else is the most excited about the fashion in the new @gossipgirl series on @hbomax? I am SO excited to see these LOOKS! Serving my best Constance Billard party look here—how did I do?!” Nastia Liukin wrote while leaning against a high-rise window and soaking in the sun in her sensual ensemble.
Fans were loving Nastia’s look and thought she could fit right in with the drama at the Upper East Side private school. “SO EXCITED!!! looking like a whole cast member,” one follower wrote to the gymnastics star on Instagram.
“I can’t wait to watch it. I’m gonna start it tomorrow,” another loyal “Gossip Girl” fan declared.
Meet the New Class
With a fresh look and hot new cast, HBO Max led the charge on bringing back the popular show after a successful run on the CW.
“Based on the bestselling novels by Cecily von Ziegesar and the original show which ran from 2007-2012 on The CW, this extension of the pop culture classic series finds a new generation of New York private school teens being introduced to social surveillance nine years after the original blogger’s website went dark,” a statement reads on the HBO Max site.
Not the Same Show
Although fans of the show will be familiar with the theme, showrunner Josh Safran told The Hollywood Reporter things will be very different this time around – especially a big twist in the very first episode.
“I wanted people to know from the top that the show was different, that the show wasn’t going to be what you saw the first time around. I also feel like it’s very important not to do the exact same show again because if I wanted to do the original show, we would’ve brought the original cast back—they wouldn’t have done it because they have careers of their own and families,” Safran told THR.”
He added, “But because it’s not the original cast, it had to be a new show and this twist makes the show something new, something different, kind of even almost stands on its own while also having all of the DNA of the original and all of the twists and stuff that you love.”
“Gossip Girl” is now available to stream on HBO Max.
