A 'Gilmore Girls' Reboot May Be Coming to Netflix

We've been waiting for a Gilmore Girls reunion since 2007, when we were stripped of Stars Hollow and Friday Night Dinners for good. Potential reunions have been hinted at, and several castmates have admitted they would be interested in a reunion—or possibly a movie. The buzz about a possible reunion really took off this summer when Patterson hinted at discussions involving a reunion project.

“I can’t really go into any details, but there is some activity. I’m hopeful, and I’m in," said Patterson in an interview with Time.

He's in—he's "all in," just like Luke was with Lorelai in season five. Cue the tears. 

But now, we finally have news that may change everything—the possibility of a Netflix reboot of the series.


The revival will consist of four 90-minute episodes as a Netflix miniseries, with creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Dan Palladino confirmed to be on board. Will we finally find out whether Luke and Lorelai get married? What were Amy's intended final four words for the series? Does Rory get back together with Jess, with Logan, or none of the above? Does she ever end up working for The New York Times? We have questions, baby, and now we may have answers.

Netflix has not confirmed the series yet, and neither has Warner Brothers, but according to TVLine, Lauren Graham (Lorelai), Alexis Bledel (Rory), Scott Patterson (Luke), and Kelly Bishop (Emily) are on board for the series. 

Amy Sherman-Palladino has discussed the possibility of the return of the show before, specifically, at the ATX TV Festival this past June. “It would have to be the right everything—the right format, the right timing,” she said. “If it ever happened, I promise we’ll do it correctly.”

Of course, now is obviously the right timing. Right now. 

We've never been happier at the prospect of Netflix and Chill—coming soon to a laptop near you with brand new (!!!) new episodes of Gilmore Girls.
