Ever since the news initially broke back in October of the Gilmore Girls Netflix Revival, rumors have been swirling around with everything from casting speculation to storyline speculation.
Now that Netflix has officially confirmed "Gilmore Girls: Seasons" (tentative title) the casting news and interviews are pouring in like a lovely coffee fueled flood!
With so much information out there, we thought it best to catalog everything that we know about "Seasons" for our most loyal of Gilmore Girls TV Fanatics!
Grab your cup of coffee, put on your Luke's Diner t-shirt, and let's dive into everything we know about the Netflix revival of Gilmore Girls!
The revival at Netflix will tentatively be called, "Gilmore Girls: Seasons" and each of the four 90-minute movie-sodes will focus on a different season in a calendar year, beginning with Winter and ending with Fall. This could be a nod to the singer behind the famous Gilmore Girls theme song, "Where You Lead," Carole King. She has another hit song called, "You've Got a Friend," which houses the lyrics, "Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall, all you have to do is call and I'll be there. You've got a friend."
Sookie Will Be Absent
Melissa McCarthy tweeted earlier this month that she was not asked to return back to Stars Hollow, so chances of seeing our favorite chef and BFF Sookie are quite slim. However, creator Amy Sherman-Palladino confirmed in an interview with Michael Ausiello that she has reached out to McCarthy's people for any time that McCarthy might be available. She does go on to say though that Sookie's absence will be addressed and explained. We hope this doesn't mean we won't see Jackson either!
Rory's Big 3 Are ALL Returning!
Dean, Jess, and Logan are all making a return appearance in Rory's life during the year of Gilmore Girls: Seasons and we couldn't be happier. While no episode count has been announced for Matt Czuchry or Jared Padalecki, Milo Ventimiglia said in an interview with Michael Ausiello that he would appear in, "more than two, but less than four," which leads us to believe he'll be in THREE of the installments! Could Rory and Jess finally get some closure on their rocky romance? We've got our fingers crossed!
Rory is Single...Technically
Despite the appearances of all of Rory's former loves, Amy Sherman-Palladino teased in an interview with TV Line that Rory is single when Gilmore Girls: Seasons picks up. "She’s…. single in the sense that she’s not married. But she’s dating like any young woman with that face would be."
Paris and Doyle Are Making a Comeback
This photo, tweeted by Danny Strong, shows our favorite Yale couple reunited on the set of Gilmore Girls: Seasons. Kelly Bishop (who plays Gilmore matriarch Emily,) said in an interview with TV Line, "It's unbelievable what Amy has written for Paris." So let's take bets! Are Paris and Doyle married? What are they doing now? Besides being amazing, of course.
A Bunheads Crossover
While it's not known whether or not Sutton Foster will be reviving her role as Michelle from Amy Sherman-Palladino's other small town universe show, Bunheads, it has been confirmed that Foster is headed to Stars Hollow. We think she'd make an excellent stand in BFF for Lorelai in Sookie's absence! What do you think TV Fanatics?
