Don’t worry, “Gilmore Girls” fans — Paris Geller will be returning to Stars Hollow, too.

Liza Weil confirmed she’ll be reprising her role in the upcoming Netflix revival at the aTVfest in Atlanta this weekend, becoming the latest original cast member to return to the reboot of the beloved series.

The “How To Get Away with Murder” star spoke about returning to “Gilmore Girls” on an aTVfest panel for her hit ABC show, which was moderated by Variety‘s Debra Birnbaum.

Netflix declined to comment on the casting on Sunday.

Kelly Bishop, who played Emily Gilmore in the original series and is returning to the Netflix project, previously said in an interview with Variety sister site TVLine that showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino had written Paris into the revival, but Weil’s return had not been confirmed at that time.

Original series stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel will also be reprising their roles. Sean Gunn (Kirk), Scott Patterson (Luke), Keiko Agena (Lane) and Matt Czuchry (Logan) are also confirmed to return, and Yanic Truesdale (Michel) announced his return via Twitter by posting a photo from set.

A premiere date for the “Gilmore Girls” revival has not yet been announced.
