Netflix Confirms ‘Gilmore Girls’ Revival, Original Cast Returning

Gilmore Girls” is officially returning.

Following speculation and many reports, Netflix confirmed on Friday that the beloved series will be revived — and with original stars Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Scott Patterson and Kelly Bishop. A premiere date or title has not been set.

While Netflix is not commenting on the structure of the show or the episodic order, sources tell Variety the revival will be comprised of four separate 90-minute installments, rather than a typical television series, as previously reported.

Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is back for the reboot, along with her husband and producing/writing partner Daniel Palladino who served as a writer, director and exec producer on the show that ran from 2000 to 2007. The duo is attached to write and direct the reboot, which Netflix has dubbed the “final season.”

Also returning from the original series are cast members Sean Gunn and Keiko Agena.

For Netflix, the project will serve as a boost to the streaming giant’s growing nostalgia-themed programming, joining “Full House” revival “Fuller House,” which is also returning with the original cast.

Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls” revival hails from Dorothy Parker Drank Here Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
