Once a Gilmore Girl, always a Gilmore Girl.
As fans will already know, the Gilmore Girls was focused well and truly on the relationship of Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and her daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel), earning itself the reputation as one of the sassiest mother-daughter buddy shows of all time.
Packed to the brim with pop culture references, killer put-downs, and hard-hitting emotional scenes, the show’s witty and fast-paced dialogue captured the hearts of thousands of fans when it aired from 2000 to 2007.
Which is why, when the series came to an end on 15 May 2007, many were left heartbroken.
Sure, we got to see Rory spread her wings and fly the nest for pastures new (she wound up covering Barack Obama’s presidential campaign for an online magazine, if you were wondering). And, yes, we finally saw Lorelai and Luke (Scott Patterson) get together... but there were still so many unanswered questions.
So we were naturally over the moon when, nine years after we bid our favourite characters goodbye, Netflix announced that they were reuniting the gang for a revival series.
And, as you’ll see from the newly-released trailer, things haven’t changed all that much…
The trailer is pretty light on what we can expect from the story, but that’s always been part of the show’s charm; this isn’t about plot, it’s about Rory and Lorelai’s relationship – and the trailer sees them back at their fast-talking best.
Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life will consist of just four episodes, each one lasting 90 minutes and 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.
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…
