Debuting on The WB in 2000, Gilmore Girls ran for seven seasons – making the transition with the network into The CW in 2006 – following the lives of Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and her daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel). Late last year it was reported Netflix was close to closing a deal to bring Gilmore Girls back. The report was followed by an official announcement of the revival with the entire original cast expected to return — with the exception the Richard Gilmore actor Edward Herrmann, who passed away in 2014.
With the show’s original creator Amy Sherman-Palladino returning – she and her husband/producing partner Daniel Palladino weren’t involved in the seventh season – Gilmore Girls will return for four 90-minute episodes on Netflix this fall under the title, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Previously, episode stills from the Gilmore Girls revival were released, along with a teaser, and a coffee-themed poster; now, Netflix has debuted new posters for each seasonal episode.
Netflix released four new posters for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, each teasing one of the seasonal episodes. The Gilmore Girls revival will begin with winter, and proceed through the other three seasons, spring, summer, and concluding in fall. Take a look at the posters:
In addition to Graham and Bledel, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will see the return of many other major players from Stars Hollow, Connecticut, including Scott Patterson as Luke Danes, Melissa McCarthy as Sookie St. James, Sean Gunn as Kirk, and Yanic Truesdale as Michel. Plus, friends and former boyfriends of Rory returning include Keiko Agena as Lane, Liza Weil as Paris, Jared Padalecki as Dean, Milo Ventimiglia as Jess, and Matt Czuchry as Logan. Additionally, Kelly Bishop will reprise her role as the Gilmore matriarch, Emily.
Certainly, these new posters for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life don’t offer any new information about what fans can expect from the Netflix revival of the beloved series. But, with little more than a month left before A Year in the Life hits Netflix, it’s likely the streaming service will begin to increase its marketing efforts with more trailers and clips from the revival, offering fans plenty of teases before the series returns.
Still, since Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will only consist of four 90-minute episodes (roughly 6 hours of content), it’s possible Netflix will hold back on releasing too many clips and trailers for fear of spoiling too much of the revival. Nevertheless, given the popularity of Gilmore Girls, fans will undoubtedly be tuning into A Year in the Life all around the world on November 25th.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premieres worldwide on Netflix on November 25.
