The residents of Stars Hallow are coming back in Netflix’s revival of Gilmore Girls. The show will air this year, but the exact date is undisclosed.

The seven season show runner is returning for a highly anticipated four episodes; each are 90-minutes long. The highly acclaimed show ended in 2007 and left fans wanting more. 

The trend in television this year is jumping forward in time for the show. All major television networks have recognized the success of shows like Fuller HousePretty Little Liars: 5 Years Forward and Girl Meets World. Netflix plans on gaining more subscriptions with its rebuts of popular shows.

Gilmore Girls will be a smart addition to its program of shows. Also, the producers are not trying to put out a sub-par rendition. Most of the original cast is coming back, including Rory’s first boyfriend, Dean Forester.

Melissa McCarthy’s character, Sookie St. James, is also coming back.  McCarthy was previously not asked to return, and after tweeting that to over 500K followers, producers were quick to ask for her return.

One beloved character to not return is Lorelai’s father, Richard Gilmore, who was played by Edward Herrmann, who passed away of brain cancer at the age of 71.

Let’s hope that the show lives up to all the fan’s expectations, and let’s hope that Lorelei and Luke Danes (Scott Patterson) are together and Rory is back with Luke’s nephew, Jess Mariano (Milo Ventimiglia).
