Gilmore Girls fans, Netflix just unveiled a brand-new trailer for the revival

With just a few days to go until Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life lands on Netflix, excitement is already at an all-time high. And now, thanks to the channel dropping a brand-new trailer, fans are at fever-pitch.

Showing Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Biedel) back at their fast-talking best, the trailer drops plenty of hints about what we can expect from the new series – and raises plenty of questions, too.

Firstly, it makes clear that Rory is, without a doubt, completely and utterly lost; she has no job, she can’t find her underwear, and she’s back home living with her mother – something which Babette (Sally Struthers) wastes no time raking her over the coals for.

“[You’re part of the thirty-something gang]. It’s a group of kids, all about your age, they’ve been to college, then out in the real world, and it spit 'em out like a stale piece of gum, and now they’re all back in their old rooms, like you.” 

Ouch.

Lorelai, meanwhile, is overjoyed to have her daughter back with her – but not all is as it seems with everyone’s favourite coffee guzzler. First of all, she seems like she’s very involved in planning a wedding (her entire house looks like a Pinterest board at one point), but whose is it?

More important, however, is the fact that Lorelai admits that she’s not as happy as she may seem on the surface. Things are, as she puts it, “hazier” – and she lets slip that all may not be well between her and Luke (Scott Patterson). Again. And is she heading off on a grown-up gap year?

Emily, meanwhile, is struggling to come to terms with Richard’s death, so much so that she’s even stooped to shopping at Kohl’s.

Throw in appearances from Paris (Liza Weil), Lane (Keiko Agena), all of Rory’s exes, and two very young children (whose children are they, we wonder? And why is Rory caring for them?) and you have a recipe for a drama-packed revival.

Penned by Amy Sherman-Palladino, the new Netflix series will be made up of four, 90-minute-long episodes (basically like mini-movies), each of which is themed around a different season in the year.

But is this the final hurrah for the show?

Speaking to Digital Spy, Biedel said: “The idea was for Amy to get the chance to conclude the story the way she always wanted to. I certainly feel we answer a lot of questions in this and we are delivering things to fans that maybe they wanted and didn't get from the season seven finale. So it feels conclusive but I suppose anything is possible, and I don't have any expectations either way.”

Graham added: “It's hard to say. I'll be curious when all the episodes are out because this feels like such a grassroots thing – the people brought Gilmore Girls back so I think it's up to the people if they think the ending feels satisfying enough. If it does I wouldn't want to touch it. To me it ends in a really satisfying way that could also continue… so I guess we'll see.”

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will premiere on Netflix on November 25.
