Netflix Unveils ‘Gilmore Girls’ 2016 Release Date and New Clip

It’ll be a very “Gilmore” Black Friday. All four 90-minute “chapters” of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” will premiere on Netflix at midnight Pacific Time on Friday, Nov. 25, meaning that fans are officially 120 days from fresh quips from Lorelai and Rory.

To tide you over until then, Netflix has also released a clip featuring Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham together again. They tease what’s to come while trading lines about Amy Schumer and John Oliver:

Schumer responded to the teaser, writing “I’ve only done two water sports and they took pictures of it both times. I promise I usually just lay there (sex too),” in reference to Rory telling Lorelai in the promo that Schumer wouldn’t like her because her mom is no fan of water sports.

Each chapter of the series will cover one season (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer). While there had been a bit of a kerfuffle over some casting, most of the series regulars will reprise their roles, including Melissa McCarthy, Scott Patterson, Rose Abdoo, Sally Struthers, Kelly Bishop, Milo Ventimiglia, David Sutcliffe, Jared Padalecki, Matt Czuchry, Liza Weil, Sean Gunn, Keiko Agena, Danny Strong, Vanessa Marano and Yanic Truesdale. Edward Herrmann, who played Gilmore patriarch Richard, passed away in 2014 but will be honored within the chapters — Richard’s wife Emily (Bishop) will be a widow.

Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino wrote and directed all four episodes with husband Daniel Palladino. Plot specifics remain elusive for now, but Graham, Bledel and the Palladinos offered a few details about the character arcs during the “Gilmore Girls” Television Critics Association panel earlier, teasing Rory and Lorelai’s love lives and giving details on McCarthy’s return.

“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” is from Dorothy Parker Drank Here Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
