Gossip Girl Season 2 Cast: Revealed

Season 2 of Gossip Girl has returned, and we have the scoop on everything that’s been happening among Manhattan’s upper crust in that time, from betrayals to power struggles.

Executive producer and showrunner Josh Safran has been anticipating season 2 since it was announced. It was up to him and the other writers in the room to set the stage for the rest of the series in the first season by introducing new characters and giving the original’s world a new setting. The vibe of the first season has to be unique. Safran clearly recalls the audience’s reaction when he promised there would be “no catfights,” but now that season 2 has begun, anything goes.

Zoya Lott, played by Whitney Peak, is a first-year scholarship student and half-sister of Julien at Constance Billard. Julien found her long-lost sister, Zoya, on social media and eventually convinced her to join her in New York City and attend the same high school. Zoya, hoping to spend more time with her sister, goes along with Julien’s plan and moves to the Upper West Side to be closer to Nick Lott, their father. There are some people in Constance who aren’t thrilled about Zoya’s arrival because of her “I couldn’t care less” demeanour, especially among Julien’s crew.

Emily Alyn Lind as Audrey Hope

Gossip Girl Season 2 Cast

Emily Alyn Lind takes on the role of Audrey Hope, the daughter of Katherine Hope, the designer of a high-end athletics wear line who is struggling to accept her recent divorce. Audrey’s demeanour is the antithesis of her mother’s Lululemon style; she always has her nails done in French and a book on hand. She has her best friend Julien and her high school boyfriend Aki to lean on despite her difficult home life. Things become more complicated, however, when Audrey develops feelings for more than one person.

Evan Mock as Akeno “Aki” Menzies

Akeno “Aki” Menzies, portrayed by Evan Mock, is a film buff who is never seen without his trusty skateboard. Although he is the youngest son of a conservative media mogul and lives in a penthouse in a Park Avenue tower, Aki is actually quite reserved. Obie’s best friend and Audrey’s boyfriend is named Aki. Things take an unexpected turn, though, when Aki has an epiphany about who he is.

Zión Moreno as Luna La

Actress Zión Moreno portrays Luna La, a Constance University student and devoted fan of Julien. Luna has a keen eye for what’s trendy and what’s not because she loves fashion so much.

Monet de Haan, portrayed by Savannah Lee Smith, is a supporter of Julien and her official public relations representative. Money, in contrast to Julien, is eager for leadership and has no qualms about ruling Constance with an iron fist. Money, the daughter of pharmaceutical moguls, is a frighteningly bright heiress to old New York money; her parents are so wealthy that they built a wing of the school. However, Monet has no intention of following in her parents’ biotech footsteps and instead plans on signing on as Julien’s agent to ensure a future on her own terms.

The Teachers

Tavi Gevinson as Kate Keller

Adam Chanler-Berat as Jordan Glassberg

Gossip Girl Season 2 Cast

Kate’s computer science professor, Jordan Glassberg, played by Adam Chanler-Berat, helps her with her Gossip Girl profile. The fact that Jordan is willing to put his career on the line to be a part of the Gossip Girl venture is evidence that he, like Kate, is terrified of his students. Jordan and Kate occasionally but heads over their schemes, suggesting that they aren’t always on the same page.

The Adults

Johnathan Fernandez as Nick Lott

Nick Lott, Zoya’s doting father and a lawyer, is portrayed by Jonathan Fernandez. Marion, Nick’s ex-girlfriend and the mother of his children Zoya and Julien, was once his true love. Since Marion’s death, Nick has stepped up his duties as a single parent and is extremely involved in his daughter’s life.
