IT'S OFFICIAL: Gilmore Girls is getting a Netflix revival
It’s time to get nostalgic- Netflix finally confirms a Gilmore Girls reunion
Thanks to the good people at Netflix, the Gilmore Girls comeback is officially a go.
Netflix has confirmed the series will return fans to Stars Hollow and reunite us with our favourite mother daughter duo Lorelai and Rory Gilmore.
It has been confirmed that creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel are all on board for the shows new episodes.
E! News is also reporting that the new series will feature several new characters, “We’ll meet Berta and Alejandro, a Peruvian couple. Alejandro is both a handyman and a solid family man. Viewers will also meet Nat Compton, an incredibly miserable looking man who never smiles.”
Rumours have been circulating of a Gilmore Girls return after news first leaked back in October and the cast were all spotted filming together.
Last year the cast assembled for an anniversary celebration in Austin where Amy Sherman-Palladino said, “Nobody here hates each other. That’s very important. If a reunion ever happened, I promise you we’d do it correctly. It would have to be the right everything, the right format, the right timing, the right way. It would have to be honoured in a certain way and I think that if you look around, we would all jump in and do it.”
Netflix is known for their reboots of old television shows. In the last year the streaming mega giant revived or will revive versions of Full House, Degrassi, Wet Hot American Summer and Mr.Show.
Gilmore Girls finished rather abruptly in 2007 due to a contract dispute that ended the storyline. Netflix is now giving the creator a chance to wrap up the Gilmore family’s story the right way.
