Everything We Know About the Gilmore Girls Revival (So Far)

It's been nearly a decade since our favorite mother-daughter duo faded into memories of Stars Hallow seasons past. Ever since the final season of the show, fans everywhere have been pining for a Gilmore Girls reunion. So it's no surprise that when Netflix announced they'd be premiering a special four-part miniseries, everyone experienced the type of joy previously only felt by Michel at a Celine Dion concert. It's happening, it's really happening, and this list has the latest details on what is to come. From the return of the core cast to the addition of some newcomers (hello, Sutton Foster), it's shaping up to be the reunion we've all dreamed about. After this list, you'll be as prepared for the Gilmore Girls revival as Rory was for every test she ever took.

    It's not exactly surprising to see our favorite bookworm back in a classroom. EW isn't calling it a spoiler but now we have a new set of questions: Does she end up back at Chilton? Is she a badass international journalist turned professor? Does she have a coffee machine in her classroom? 
  • Luke and Lorelai Are Still Together

    Or at least that's what this photo - released by Netflix in April of 2016 - would suggest! You can see more photo from the set here.
  • The Revival Is a Four-Part Series Set in Modern-Day Stars Hollow

    It's been reported that each episode will be named after a season and that they'll be  90 minutes long. The cast has already tweeted photos from the set, just in case you still couldn't believe it was actually happening. "Originally we were going to pitch three [episodes]. And then we thought… four seasons, because seasons were so big with the show," Sherman-Palladino told TVLine. "It was snow and fall and spring and festivals… it defined [Stars Hollow] a lot. And we thought that’d be a lovely way to catch up with all three of our Gilmore Girls over the course of a year."

  • Edward Hermann (Also Known as Richard Gilmore) Will Be Missed

    Let's take a moment to remember the beloved patriarch played by Edward Hermann, who passed away in 2014. Sherman-Palladino shared that they will honor his memory in the show and the impact he had on all three of the Gilmore girls.
  • We'll Finally Find Out What the Final Four Words Are

    Amy Sherman-Palladino once said she knew what the final four words of the series would be. But because she and husband/co-writer Daniel Palladino weren't involved in the final season, we never got to find out what they were. Lauren Graham told TVLine that they're actually an exchange between Lorelai and Rory and that it may leave us with some more questions than answers according to EW.  In the meantime we still have this GG catchphrase.
