Last week, fans got their first look at the highly-anticipated Gilmore Girls Revival Event Series, which is set to debut later this year on Netflix. Today we have official versions of these photos, along with a few more images, courtesy of the streaming service. Netflix also confirmed that the series will consist of four 90-minute movies. There have been rumors that each movie will take place during each of the four seasons, but that has not been confirmed quite yet.
The four, 90-minute movies, are bringing your favorite Stars Hollow residents back together from Gilmore Girls - Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham), Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel), Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop), Luke Danes (Scott Patterson), Sookie St. James (Melissa McCarthy) and many more - picking up life nine years after the original Gilmore Girls signed off the air. Amy Sherman-Palladino is the creator and executive producer. Daniel Palladino is also an executive producer. They are both writing and directing the series.
Gilmore Girls on Netflix is produced by Dorothy Parker Drank Here Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Other cast members who are featured in these photos include Rose Abdoo as Gypsy, Sally Struthers as Babette, while also revealing that Alexis Bledel's Rory has become a local teacher. Other returning cast members who aren't pictured include Yanic Truesdale, Jared Padalecki, Milo Ventimiglia, Matt Czuchry, Liza Weil, Sean Gunn and Keiko Agena.
Last week's report revealed that Sutton Foster and Mae Whitman will be coming aboard as special guest stars, but no details were given regarding their characters. Production is already under way, but the streaming service hasn't announced an exact premiere date for this new season quite yet. It isn't known when we may get the first trailer, or how much longer production will last.
Amy Sherman-Palladino left the original Gilmore Girls before the series finale due to a contract dispute. This /full-house-netflix-series-steve-hale-scott-weinger/new deal will allow the creator to conclude the show in the way she always intended, since she has stated in the past that the final season didn't match up with the ending she envisioned for Lorelai and Rory. While we wait for more details, check out the latest photos from the Gilmore Girls Revival Event Series, debuting on Netflix later this year.
