Where you lead, we will follow, Netflix. After a string of high-profile TV and film revivals/sequels—including Arrested DevelopmentWet Hot American Summer, Pee-wee Herman and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon—the streaming service is reportedly resurrecting Gilmore Girls. The series concluded its seventh and final go-round in May 2007.

This wouldn't be another season, though. The new Gilmore Girls is set to take the form of four 90-minute movies/mega-episodes, sources are telling Variety and TVLine.

"Although negotiations with the cast are only now beginning," TVLine's Michael Ausiello writes, "I’m told all of the major players—most notably Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop and Scott Patterson—are expected back for the continuation." That's Lorelai, Rory, Emily and Luke, if you lost track.

Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, who left the series late in the game and (like many a fan) was disappointed with how it ended, will be on board, as will executive producer husband Daniel Palladino.
