Netflix has been teasing “Gilmore Girls” fans with a revival for some time now, and the first official trailer for the highly anticipated reboot is finally here.
“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” will premiere four months from now, on November 25, and it will take the form of four 90-minute episodes, titled “Winter,” “Spring,” “Summer” and “Fall.”
Almost ten years have passed since Gilmore Girls ended its seven-season run, but this trailer proves that some things never change in Stars Hollow. Just as the title cards say, “Seasons may change, but some things never will.”
The clip shows Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel reprising their well-known roles as Lorelai and Rory Gilmore. The mother-daughter duo are seen sitting at the kitchen table, eating Pop Tarts, and doing what they do best – talking a mile a minute and exchanging snappy replicas.
Their fast-paced conversation doesn’t reveal much about what the new season might hold in store in terms of storyline, but it offers fans what they missed the most: the witty banter between the two. We also know that it will take place roughly eight years after the last episode of season 7 and all of Rory’s ex-boyfriends will be featured.
We also get a glimpse into Stars Hollow, as shots of familiar places around the small Connecticut town are also shown in the video, including Luke’s Diner, Doose’s Market, the Dragonfly Inn, and Rory and Lorelai’s house.
Original series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino co-directs all four installments of the new season and actors Melissa McCarthy, Kelly Bishop, Sean Gunn and Keiko Agena are also confirmed to return for the reboot. The only main character that will not appear in the new episodes is Richard Gilmore due to Edward Herrmann’s passing in 2014.
Lauren Graham has been very vocal about her excitement to return to the world of Gilmore Girls and she has hinted that, if these four episodes manage to obtain decent ratings, fans might get more. There is no official word on this from Netflix as of yet, though. Nevertheless, considering that the trailer has amassed over a million views in just hours, we’re pretty sure the revival won’t lack in popularity and viewers.
I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly curious to see where the show takes Rory and Lorelai next.
