Gilmore Girls 2016: read the first page of the reboot script

Gilmore Girls fans, we’ve got a treat for you.

When it was first announced that Netflix were rebooting one of the sassiest mother-daughter buddy shows of all time, long-time fans of the show reacted with excitement – and trepidation.

Would the show be as packed to the brim with pop culture references, killer put-downs, hard-hitting emotional moments, and fast-talking scenes as we remembered?

More importantly, how would Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life be able to pack in enough Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and her daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel) to satisfy our needs, especially when you consider the fact that the revival show is just four episodes long?

Well, we needn’t have worried.

Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has exclusively shared the very first page of the script for the first episode, Winter, with us.

And, while it’s just a snippet of what’s to come, it’s safe to say that superfans won’t be disappointed.

That’s right; there’s a joke about Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop in there.

Speaking about that first joke with Entertainment Weekly, Graham said: “[I read that Paltrow jab and] just felt like that’s so quintessentially Amy and Lorelai.

“It was then that I was like, ‘We’re going to be okay.’”

Each of the Netflix show’s upcoming four episodes will last 90 minutes, focusing on a different season in the year; the first will take place in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in the summer, and the finale in the autumn – or “fall”, as Lorelai and Rory would say.

Speaking about the series with TV Line, the real-life Lorelai explained:  “Each [episode] has a fairly big journey and are pretty distinct from each other."

She went on to single out the emotional mini-series finale, Fall, as the one that packs the most punch.

Graham added: “Fall has the biggest events. It’s the culmination of the journey, so there are a lot of moments. And a lot of soul-searching and resolution. Fall is very emotional.'”

Fall isn’t just big news because it’s the finale, however; fans will finally get to hear the final four words of the Gilmore Girls.

As the legend goes, Sherman-Palladino had the perfect four-word exchange penned to close the series, but she left the show at the end of series 6, while it continued on to season 7 without her.

She took those words with her, and, though she’s been asked many times since, has refused to reveal them to anyone.

Until now, that is.

That’s right; Graham has now opened up about the show’s hotly anticipated final four words (which will be dropped at the end of Fall)– and she’s warned fans to expect the unexpected.

“I was surprised - I thought they would be, like, ‘Goodbye, Stars Hollow.'”

Lorelai, that’s only three words; get yourself together.

The actress (quite rightly) refused to spoil that emotional end scene for all those wannabe Gilmore Girls out there.

However she did confirm, with 100% absolute certainty, that the words will not be: “I’m actually a vampire.” So that’s good to know.

The highly-anticipated revival will premiere across the world on 25 November 2016, although it remains unclear as to whether or not Netflix will release them all at once, or stagger them out over a period of time.

One thing’s for sure, we can’t wait to sit down and watch the Gilmore Girls back on our televisions where they belong.

Roll on November 2016…
