Gilmore Girls Fans Anticipate “A Year In The Life”


Alex Halfinger

On November 25, the world of Gilmore will re-spark old feelings and nostalgia. The network drama Gilmore Girls, created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, was once a syndicated hit from the years 2000 and 2006, and in that time, fans got to know Lorelai and Rory Gilmore; a witty, tightly-knit mother daughter duo.

Throughout the six years, Gilmore Girls had its television fame, millions of viewers felt the emotional hardships that Lorelai and Rory went through; and by the end, people only wanted more. Luckily, in January 2016, nearly 10 years after the show’s final season, Netflix announced their partnership with the show, and officiated a new four-episode season, which will premiere just in time for Thanksgiving.

Fans have become wildly enthusiastic; prompting pop-up coffee shops named after the famous “Lukes;” the popular diner spot in which the Gilmore family often drank coffee at. Alongside Lorelai (played by Lauren Graham; Parenthood) and Rory (Alexis Bledel; Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) will be all of the returning cast members, such as Melissa McCarthy, Kelly Bishop, and Scott Patterson, who’s characters have all made marks in the hearts of every viewer. Fans are anticipating the love triangles, coming-of-age woes, and the overall chaotic life of Gilmore.

Each of the four episodes in Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life will focus on one season, and is projected to be about 90 minutes long, starting in the winter and ending in the fall.

The fictional “Stars Hallow” residents are also expected to be picking up right where they left off; proving that this revival is more than just a continuation. Based off numerous reports and teasers, we see each character in their current stage of life ten years later, and how they have coped with certain losses (Edward Hermann, who played the wealthy Richard Gilmore, passed in 2014; however, it will be played into the show) and with current pop-culture (Lorelai questions Rory if she thinks current comedian Amy Schumer would like her).

Fans aren’t exactly picking up where they left off, and this is expected to rank in millions of streams once Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life becomes available at 12:01 a.m. on Nov. 25.

There are current trailers promoting the revival; however, Netflix is currently streaming all seven seasons of the original show, so people can catch up on the tales of Gilmore, and maybe become hooked – just like Lorelai and her coffee.

Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life arrives on November 25th, exclusively on Netflix.
