Mondays have been pretty bleak without the juicy joy of The CW’s Gossip Girl. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel: The soap will be back on Sept. 14! From the newly released teaser, here are some of the nuggets to look for this season: Chuck and Blair are finally a couple! And Dan is drinking beer! And Serena loses her top! And Carter is shirtless with some horses! Okay, that’s weird. But everything else looks GG-great.

What do you think PopWatchers? Are you excited for Gossip Girl season 3?
