Good news! The Gilmore Girls TV show revival on Netflix finally has a name: Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Star Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore) gave fans (not to mention entertainment writers, everywhere) a huge gift Thursday, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. No longer do we have to refer to the project as “the Gilmore Girls revival,” or variations thereof. Watch a clip of Graham’s blessed announcement, below.
Gilmore Girls revival Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life TV show cast includes: Graham, Alexis Bledel, Keiko Agena, Kelly Bishop, Matt Czuchry, Scott Patterson, Yanic Truesdale, Sean Gunn, Milo Ventimiglia, Melissa McCarthy, Jared Padaleki, Danny Strong, David Sutfcliffe, Liza Weil, Vanessa Marano, and everyone else you can imagine (and then some).
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life consists of four 90 minute episodes or, as they’re often called, mini-movies, entitled Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. As names go, it is apt and flows much better than “the Gilmore Girls TV series revival,” which was getting ever so tedious to type.
Watch Graham break the happy news.
In case you missed it, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life co-star, Scott Patterson (Luke), says there is room for more Gilmore Girls sequel projects. Describing the mood on set as “grateful,” “happy,” and “closer,” he adds that he hopes there will be future Gilmore Girl sequels. Read more.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life production wrapped last week. There is no word yet on whether all four movies will drop at once, as is the Netflix custom. Reportedly, though, the final installment includes a wedding.
What do you think? Are you getting excited for the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life TV show? Are you relieved it finally has a name? What do you hope happens in the sequel series?
