Following in the footsteps of Twin Peaks, Full House, The X-Files, Arrested Development and, to a lesser extent, the crowdfunded Veronica Mars movie, the Gilmore Girls are set to stage a comeback, and we now have firm details regarding when Amy Sherman-Palladino’s mother-daughter dramedy series will return to the airwaves.
Entitled Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life, Netflix has confirmed the four-part series – comprised of 90-minute episodes that take place in various seasons throughout the year – will make its bow on November 25, and the trailer above offers but a sneak peek of Lorelai and Rory navigating life in 2016.
Speaking at a panel to promote the show’s long-anticipated return – Gilmore Girls bowed out in 2007 after seven seasons – Lauren Graham gushed about paying a visit to Stars Hollow after all these years: “Everything was like, ‘Oh, here’s the chemistry we had from the very first day we met,’ and it was just a joy to revisit.”
Amy Sherman-Palladino penned all four of the new episodes, which will feature a host of notable talent including Alexis Bledel, Melissa McCarthy, Scott Patterson, Kelly Bishop, Keiko Agena, Sean Gunn, Milo Ventimiglia, Matt Czuchry, Liza Weil, Jared Padalecki and Yanic Truesdale.
Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life will debut via Netflix on November 25.
