Gilmore Girls revival

In late October, Netflix offered fans a brief glimpse at the highly anticipated Gilmore Girls reboot by releasing the first Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life squeal-inducing two minute trailer.

And now, just days before Rory, Lorelai and co return to small screens across the globe, the revered entertainment specialist has sent hearts racing with a SECOND GG preview.

The clip shows Rory struggling to deal with life as an unemployed college graduate, Lorelai questioning her relationship with Luke and Emily coming to terms with the loss of her husband.

But it’s not all doom and gloom, as in true Gilmore Girls fashion, the video is laced with girly humour, unorthodox advice and musings like Lorelai’s “I believe in a former life I was coffee”.  Classic.

Check it out below:

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premieres on Netflix November 25.


Late last year, it was announced that Gilmore Girls would be making its long-awaited on-screen comeback in the form of four 90 minute Netflix episodes.

Ever since the news broke, trickles of information about the highly anticipated reboot have been fed to fans along with nostalgia-inducing trivia about the original show.

The latest instalment of this trivia features one of Hollywood’s hottest heartthrobs.

Speaking at The Gilmore Girls Fan Festival this weekend, casting director Jami Rudofsky revealed that Ryan Gosling almost landed a role in the hit Warner Bros. series.

“When I was a very wee casting person, I was casting an independent movie for no money,” explained Jami.

“This guy came in, and he was late, and I rolled my eyes because he was late, and he was blonde.  I thought he was giving attitude ― what I didn’t realise was that he was in character.  He did the audition, and it was one of the most amazing auditions that I’ve ever seen.”

On the back of this incident, The Notebook star was invited to audition for a football player role in Gilmore Girls but – in a scenario which pretty much alters the history of GG fans’ lives – his audition failed to impress.

“[I’d] kept him in my mind, and I was thinking ‘I can’t wait for them to meet him.’  And I am talking him up,” continued Jami.

“So he came in, I think it was a football character? I don’t even remember…He auditioned, and it kind of fell flat.”

With that heart wrenching piece of history in mind, watching Gilmore Girls this November is going to be beyond emosh.

As you may or may not know, The Gilmore Girls will be returning to our screens next month (we CAN'T wait).

Anyway, in order to promote the new season, Netflix opened a number of pop-up cafés in cities across America. 


Like all good things, we gotta start with a cup of Luke's coffee. Welcome to the Gilmore Gram.

All of these cafés were designed to resemble the infamous Luke's Diner, the restaurant owned by Luke Danes in The Gilmore Girls

People who were lucky enough to get coffee in these pop-ups, were served their beverage in a Luke's Diner paper-cup.

According to Time magazine, fans are actually shelling out almost €100 on eBay to own one of these PAPER CUPS.

Listen, we love The Gilmore Girls, but that just seems like a colossal waste of money. 

HOWEVER, if you earn it, you have the right to spend your money on whatever you want…

Even if it is a paper cup! 

The Gilmore Girls reboot will be on Netflix on November 25th. 


We are all eagerly awaiting the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life  revival, which is set to hit our computers in November.

And, after a very cryptic post on the Gilmore Girls official Instagram yesterday, fans are FREAKING out. 

Lorelai and Luke

You all know the saying, 'an apple a day not only keeps the doctor away.'

Well, in Stars Hollow, an apple is also a strong indicator that Lorelai Gilmore could be with child.

In season five Lorelai, who is renowned for being gloriously unhealthy, thought she was pregnant with Luke's baby when she caught herself eating a red apple and enjoying it.

The post reads "pop-tart appetizers to hold us over 'till the pizza comes. And one apple," leading us all to wonder WHO is the apple for!

One fan commented on the post "Omgoshhhhh!!!! Does this mean Lorelai could be prego?!?!?!"

The significance of the apple is fairly unclear, but it seems strange to include the fruit in the shows marketing for no reason. 

As our imaginations run wild with all of this information, we have begun to wonder which (if any) of the Gilmore women could be preggers.

Will Rory be getting a new brother or sister? OR is Lorelai set to be a grandmother?

Only time will tell, and we CAN'T WAIT to find out! 

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life starts streaming on November 25th on Netflix.


Gilmore Girls fans have long been torn over which of Rory's three suitors was best for her over the long haul: hometown boy-next-door Dean, bad boy Jess, or Yale beau Logan. 

Jared Padalecki, who plays heart-throb Dean, recently shed a bit of light on the outcome of Rory's love life. 

Speaking to Us Weekly this week, Jared said that he has a "pretty good idea" of how fans will react to Rory Gilmore's romantic life when the show's Netflix reboot launches.

"There will always be some fans who are unhappy, but I think they'll be pleased with it," the Supernatural actor says of the romantic path that awaits Rory.  

"Amy didn't come back to f**k it up — she came back to do it right, and she did it right," he says about the show's producer.

However, do not expect much on-screen time for exes Rory and Dean.

In fact, Jared admits that he was only on the set of the reboot for one day (the horror!).

"I wanted to be a bigger part — I think they wanted me to be a bigger part of it as well. But it was shot during Supernatural, so I only did one day. But in that one day, it was a really good amount of stuff I got to do, and explained a lot."

Netflix has not yet announced a premiere date for the revival, but we CAN'T WAIT. 


Gilmore Girls fans the world over got some amazing news last week when it was revealed the much-loved show would be returning to our screens.

Now we have a few more details about the upcoming Netflix revival, and it sounds like it's going to be a winner.

As previously reported, the sequels will take the form of four 90-minute long episodes. 

But in a cool twist, the show's creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino has revealed that the four parts will take place over a year, with each episode set during a different season. 

Maybe for the summer episode we'll see the return of Rory as the Ice Cream Queen?

And of course there will have to be some kind of autumn festival to showcase Star's Hollow at its prettiest.

Amy and her husband Dan will write and direct the GG revival, and though it's yet to be revealed who will star, Lauren Graham (Lorelai) certainly seems interested:

A contract dispute with Warner Bros back in 2006 meant that Amy had to bow out of writing the show's final season, and so she never got to create the perfect ending for Lorelai and Rory.

But even after all this time she says there's plenty of inspiration.

"The beauty of Gilmore, and the beauty of family-relationship shows, is you never really run out of story,” she told Entertainment Weekly.

"Ten years later, there’s still going to be [material] there to mine and to delve into."


Brace yourselves Gilmore Girls fans!

Sources are confirm that Netflix has closed a deal with Warner Bros. for a limited-series revival of Gilmore Girls written by series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino.

Negotiations with the cast are only now beginning, but according to TV Line most of the series major stars are set to be returning. Most notably Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop and Scott Patterson. Hurrah!

Additionally the website reports multiple insider sources are saying the revival will consist of  90-minute episodes. Which is practically the length of a film. So really, we’re getting four Gilmore Girls films! Kind of, but it’s exciting to think of it that way.

The deal allows Amy — who left the original series prior to the last season as a result of a contract dispute with Warner Bros. — to end Gilmore Girls in the way she had always imagined.

Over the summer when the cast and creator of the series reunited at the ATX Festival, she addressed the possibility of a revival for the series.

“It would have to be the right everything — the right format, the right timing,” she said. “If it ever happened, I promise we’ll do it correctly.”

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly in 2009, Amy remained hopeful that she would get to conclude the Gilmore story on her terms, either through a film or a shorter series.

“The beauty of Gilmore, and the beauty of family-relationship shows, is you never really run out of story,” she said.

“You’re going to battle your family until you’re all in the ground.

"Those things never resolve, doesn’t matter how much therapy you get. Ten years later, there’s still going to be [material] there to mine and to delve into.”

Did we mention we are feeling very excited about this, because we are.
