Netlix also confirmed that its “Gilmore Girls” comeback will be comprised of four 90-minute episodes, as previously reported by Variety, rather than a typical series format.

Ventimiglia tweeted the news on Wednesday with a picture of his script, dated Feb. 3:

The rebooted “Gilmore Girls” will also welcome back Yanic Truesdale and the previously reported Liza WeilMatt Czuchry, Scott Patterson, Kelly Bishop, Keiko Agena, Sean Gunn — and, of course, Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel.

Weil announced her “Gilmore Girls” return this past weekend at the aTVfest in Atlanta on a panel for her current hit show “How to Get Away With Murder.”

“Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband and producing/writing partner Daniel Palladino will write and direct the Netflix revival. Still, no official title or premiere date has been released.
