It’s time to get excited because the Gilmore Girls’ reboot, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, will officially be premiering on Friday, November 25, 2016! There will be four 90 minute episodes and each one will focus on one of the seasons, but that’s not all! We have 10 more behind the scenes secrets for the upcoming reboot – check it out!
10. Who Is Coming Back
For the reboot, we can expect to see the three Gilmore women, Lorelai (Lauren Graham), Rory (Alexis Bledel), and Emily (Kelly Bishop), as well as Luke (Scott Patterson) and Lorelai’s ex-husband and baby daddy Christopher (David Sutcliffe). Rory’s ex boyfriends Dean (Jared Padalecki), Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) and Logan (Matt Czuchry) will also be making appearances, as well as Rory’s frenemy Paris Geller (Liza Weil) and other Stars Hollow regulars like Michel (Yanic Truesdale), Miss Patty (Liz Torres) and Kirk (Sean Gunn). It was also recently announced that Melissa McCarthy, who played Sookie, will be returning for the reboot.
9. New Characters and Storylines
The show will be introducing several new characters, including a Peruvian couple, a 30-something man named Paul (possibly Rory’s boyfriend?) and an older men’s magazine editor (another potential suitor?). Viewers can also expect to see much more of Michel, played by Yanic Truesdale, this time around. Truesdale suggested to Us Weekly that his character might have a love-based plot line. “That is nice for me as an actor because it gives me a backstory,” he said. “But it gives me meat for the character because he, you know, I definitely have an arc and stuff going on in my personal life that affect the character. So the fans can expect to discover more about Michel.” British actress Alex Kingston has also joined the cast. Her character reportedly has a major part to play in Rory’s life.
