Alright Gilmore Girls fans: the wait isn't almost over, but at least we know how long till it will be over. Netflix's revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, will drop its four 90-minute chapters on Friday, Nov. 25. That's the day after Thanksgiving, so you a) may not have to take work off and b) will get to feel extra family-ish and cozy and pop culture–y. Each super-sized episode/semi-short movie will be dedicated to a single season in a year in Stars Hollow.
A really lovely new teaser has Lorelai and Rory at the kitchen table serving up their signature lightning-fast dialogue, this time about whether Amy Schumer would like the matriarch of the Stars Hollow sect of the Gilmore fam. And these culture-jabbering gals are now in the age of insta-iPhone-research, which is just a total game-changer.
Also a game changer: actress Alexis Bledel was 26 when Gilmore wrapped its seven-year run in 2007; she is now a 34-year-old mother and married to Mad Men star Vincent Kartheiser. Their son was born in the fall of 2015; the world at large didn't find out till this past spring. Lauren Graham was one of the stars of Parenthood for its five year run from 2010-'15; she's been dating her co-star Peter Krause since the year the show started.
Returning for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, among many others, are Melissa McCarthy, Scott Patterson, Rose Abdoo, Sally Struthers, Kelly Bishop, Milo Ventimiglia, Jared Padalecki and Danny Strong. Series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and her partner, Daniel Palladino, wrote and directed the entire project together. Sherman-Palladino exited Gilmore Girls one year before its finale.
