The lives of all the inhabitants of Stars Hallow have continued without us. Now it´s time to catch up!
After all this waiting and support from the fan community, Netflix finally gave the thumbs up. On Friday, Jan. 29, they made it official through Twitter, writing “OY with the poodles, already! See you on set, Amy Sherman-Palladino.”
Rumors have been all over social media since Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore) mentioned it in one of her tweets last October. She, too, made it official through tweeting “I CAN NOW CONFIRM: it´s time for me, and this jacket I stole in 2007, to return to work.” It was retweeted more than 40,000 times and liked over 70,000 times – so there are some serious fans out there, waiting.
Of course Stars Hallow needs more than only Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, so the cast will be rejoined by Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore) and Scott Patterson (Luke Danes). Other than that, Rory´s ex-boyfriends – Dean, Jess and Logan – have also been seen on set.
The series debuted in 2000 and was cancelled after its seventh season in 2007. Eight years after the last season of Gilmore Girls, Netflix decided to take up the cult series again. Details are not yet clear, but according to TVLine, the new series will consist of four 90-minutes episodes. Each episode will represent a season, catching up with the lives of the Stars Hallow inhabitants, Lorelai and Rory.
Plenty of pop-culture references and two really fast talking actresses are what made the show special. During its seven seasons, the show followed Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and her daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel) through their lives. Covering Rory’s last high school years the story then moved on to her time at Yale University. Meanwhile her mother goes through several relationships and an engagement and eventually opens her own Inn.
Fans and future-fans can expect the series to stay true to the fast-paced dialogue and funny comments, but what else the show will have to offer is to be seen. Hurry, Netflix, we´re waiting!
