You better sit down: Netflix is reviving 'Gilmore Girls’
Deep breaths, everyone. We can get through this together as long as we can manage to not TOTALLY LOSE OUR MINDS over the fact that Netflix is bringing back Gilmore Girls.
Yes, normally we would roll our eyes at yet another attempt to revive a classic that is just fine as is, thank you very much, and likewise shouldn’t be touched.
According to Variety, Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband, executive producer Daniel Palladino, are teaming with the digital channel to create four 90-minute movies, rather than a traditional series.
Rumors have been circulating that an announcement like this was imminent, though Sherman-Palladino said at last summer’s ATX Festival, “There’s nothing in the works at the moment.”
The original series starred Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel. Will they be back, or will Netflix try to pull some “no really this is Becky, we swear” actress-switching trickery like Roseanne did?
TVLine is reporting that the four major players — Graham, Bledel, Kelly Bishop and Scott Patterson — are in.
“If it ever happened, I promise we’d do it correctly. … Nobody here hates each other, which is very important,” Sherman-Palladino said. “It would have to be the right everything, the right format, the right timing. It would have to be honored in a certain way. And if it ever came around, we would all jump in and do it.”
