  • Rumors have been swirling like crazy about the upcoming Netflix reboot of the cult favorite comedy-drama series 'Gilmore Girls'. The show had a seven-season run and ended in 2007, since last year. Now, Netflix has finally broken its silence about the planned revival with a slip of an announcement from one of its executives.
  • Ted Sarandos, Netflix's Chief Content Officer, told the press at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour in Pasadena, CA on Sunday, "I can't tell you much about 'Gilmore Girls.'" He added: "We're still working on buttoning down everything before our announcements.'"
  • His announcement may not sound like much, but this is the first official word about the 'Gilmore Girls' revival since it has been announced back in October 2015. The reboot, which will reportedly be set in the present day, will pick up eight years from when the series ended.

    'Gilmore Girls' started October 5, 2000 until May 15, 2007.
  • The 'Gilmore Girls' creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino, is set to write and direct the revival with her husband Daniel Palladino. Daniel, who executive produced the original series, will do so once again for the reboot.
  • As per TVLine, Netflix is still discussing with the members of the show's original main cast about their involvement in the reboot. These actors include Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore), Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore), Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore), and Scott Patterson (Luke Danes).
  • No word yet whether Melissa McCarthy (Sookie St. James), Keiko Agena (Lane Kim), Yanic Truesdale (Michel Gerard), and the other original cast members have been asked to reprise their respective roles in the reboot.
  • As was announced, the series will consist of four 90-minute episodes. Each episode/mini-movie will correspond with a different season. Thus, there will be a summer episode, a fall episode, a winter episode, and a spring episode, as TVLine reported.
  • Although, Netflix and Warner Bros. have yet to officially confirm the 'Gilmore Girls' revival series, there are a ton of evidence out there.

    So we'll just have to wait and see. Fingers crossed!
