Stars Hollow, you've never looked so good!
Nine years after "Gilmore Girls" went off the air, the cast is back with four, 90-minute movies, each themed around one of the four seasons. Wonderwall.com has seven first look images from the revival that will bring back Lorelai and Rory Gilmore and the rest of the gang to the fictitious Connecticut town.
The stories are said to essentially be in real time, as they'll pick up nine years after the show ended (we can only imagine what happened in the sleepy town of Stars Hollow during those nine years!)
As we have no background, it's hard to decipher what is happening in all the images, but, who are we to complain: any day you get too see fresh "Gilmore Girls" images is a good day!
Speculation had run rampant toward late 2015 that a revival was in the works for the popular show, and the rumors were confirmed in January of 2016 when it was announced that Netflix would air the movies later this year.
When the news was announced, Melissa McCarthy publicly said she wasn't likely to reprise her Sookie St. James character for the four-film reboot. However, just last week, the slimmed-down star confirmed her return.
"It is really exciting," she told Ellen DeGeneres just hours after the deal was finalized, adding that the show "was near and dear to my heart."
She said she always wanted to return to the show as everyone's favorite chef, but the scheduling was problematic.
"We could not get those schedules to work [for the reboot]. And there was a whole thing," she said. "And then I was gonna be out of the country and blah, blah, blah. And literally about an hour and half ago, we figured out that I'm going to go back and do it, and I am so excited. And they are gonna be amazing."
Shortly after Melissa revealed the news, Lauren Graham, who plays her BFF Lorelai and started sharing images from the set, tweeted her excitement.
"Yay, Sookie! This makes me so so happy," she said on Friday. "Let's all go see @TheBossFilm this weekend to celebrate."
