Everything that you need to know about the revival of the Gilmore Girls before the seventh season premieres.
The Gilmore Girls fans are ecstatic about the revival that Netflix was so kind to pick up and pull through. Not only is the network showcasing the four 90 minute episodes of the revival aptly titled Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
So while you’re binge watching the show on Netflix and trying to relive with Emily, Lorelai and Rory, we have a guide for you of all the things you need to know about the revival.
Return of Sherman-Palladino and Palladino
Fans were disappointed all those years ago when show creators, Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino left the show after the first six episodes of the final season due to creative differences.
Their departure led to the show ending in some distracted and off referenced episodes which left the fans yearning for more. The first thing that Netflix did was to get the original creators, Sherman-Palladino and Palladino on the revival again.
They are involved in making all four episodes of the show. Both have admitted that they made sure that the new episodes were very much within the storyline and the references that the show was left at.
We will also get to hear the last four words that Amy Sherman-Palladino wanted the show to end on. Those words were never said because she left but this time they will be said and according to Palladino, the last four words will be said between the two characters.
Where are the Gilmore Girls?
This question is the premise for the revival. We always wondered where Emily, Lorelai and Rory will be after all these years after we saw them last. We know that Emily who frequently battled her own insecurities as a housewife who felt at times unheard and under-appreciated by everyone, including her own family.
Lorelai always wanted to open her own inn and a large part of her life revolved around making that dream true. She was also very protective of herself and Rory. In the six seasons of the show, Rory was in school.
She was always the efficient, studious girl who was destined for great things in life. We have come long in life after the last episode aired. The first episode script by Sherman-Palladino reveals a scene which are indicative that the girls are going to be wittier and they have embraced technology as a part of their lives.
Emily is going to be dealing with the death of her husband and where it leaves her in life. Lorelai, whose life always revolved around herself and Rory now finds herself as an independent woman who is now questioning her path in life.
Rory, now 30, is going through the crisis of crossing 30. She is one of those many people who did everything right in their life. They went to school, they got good grades, got their dream jobs but somehow they find themselves at the end of the road where they question what their life means?
Love Life of Lorelai and Rory
The romantic lives of the Gilmore Girls was always one of the most interesting themes for the show. Lorelai will have both of the great loves, both Chris (Rory’s dad) and Luke back in her life, though Lorelai is not married to him. According to Time, Scott Patterson said that his character and Lorelai are together in the show but they are figuring out their next move.
As for Rory, she took the high road and moved on with her life without the three boyfriends that shaped her character, we will be seeing all three guys return to the show, Matt Czhuchry (Logan), Jared Padalecki (Dean) and Milo Ventimiglia (Jess) will all be back. So it is much rather a guessing game about who Rory will choose after all these years.

We know that Lauren Graham (Lorelai), Alexis Bledel (Rory), Scott Patterson (Luke), Kelly Bishop (Emily), Melissa McCarthy (Sookie), Sean Gunn (Kirk), Keiko Agena (Lane), Liza Weil (Paris) and Yanic Truesdale (Michel Gerard) will all be back for the revival. We will also be seeing some new faces including, a Peruvian couple, Lane’s twins, a magazine editor named Jim, a young man named Damon, a 30-something man named Paul and Dwayne, who is described as blue collar.
