The Gilmore Girls Is Coming Back

As committed and unrelenting Gilmore Girls fans, this news has made us seriously happy. After months of what ifs and maybes, the news was finally confirmed that the beloved series is getting revived – and in quite a modern way. Though no premiere date has been set, Variety reports that the new episodes will be streamed on Netflix, so schedule some future binge-watching time in your calendars.

The popular’show, won legions of fans more than a decade ago depicting the exploits of a thirty-something mother and her teenage daughter. The best news? Pretty much all of the original cast are set to return. This isn’t some cheap attempt at a series make-over, oh no. This is the real deal. ?This means?Lauren Graham as Lorelai Gilmore and Alexis Bledel, who played her daughter Rory – will’definitely?be back. As will?actors Scott Patterson (Luke), Kelly Bishop (Emily), Sean Gunn (Kirk) and Keiko Agena (Lane).

The show aired 150 episodes from 2000 to 2007,?and has since achieved cult status (it wasn’t a success right away), and a legion of fans, still having conversations about Rory’s complex love live and all the rest (we were not Team Dean?and are still divided on Logan). Also, yours truly?admires the woman who refused Logan’s?unfair “all or nothing” ultimatum in favour of pursuing her journalism goals.

We’re expecting the revived episodes to be of a similar calibre to the original, as series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino will oversee the new programme.?The new series will reportedly be in a miniseries format,?with four 90-minute shows at least.?

Rory Gilmore got married in real life not long ago, so will she have done the same in the new series? Will she be a savvy and intrepid political reporter? Time will tell.

We can’t wait to find out.

Watch the clip below for all the nostalgic feels and Emily’s classic reaction to The Berkin Bag.
