It’s time to dust off our coffee mugs and head back to Stars Hollow, because Netflix has confirmed that they are reviving the much-loved series, Gilmore Girls.
— Netflix US (@netflix) January 29, 2016
Original producers, Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino, will return to the series as well.
The stars set to return are Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore), Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore), Scott Patterson (Luke Daniels), Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore), Sean Gunn (Kirk Gleeson) and Keiko Agena (Lane Kim).
According to TVLine, the revival will be a four-parter, with every episode written and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino, and the title is tentatively known as Gilmore Girls: Seasons.
The revival will be set eight-years after the series finale, and “will represent a different season over the course of one calendar year”.
This will give Amy Sherman-Palladino the chance to complete the story that she began and give it a fitting ending as she exited the series a year before it was cancelled because of contract disputes.
Filming will begin on February 2nd in Los Angeles.
There has been no word whether any of Rory’s exes will be returning, and shippers of Team Dean (Jared Padalecki), Team Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) or Team Logan (Matt Czuchry) will have to wait in anticipation to see who will be cast.
Also not mentioned in the casting is Melissa McCarthy, who after she hung up Sookie St. James’ apron went onto star in the popular series Mike and Molly, as well as several blockbuster feature films. But then again, if Bradley Cooper could return for Wet Hot American Summer…
