The Gilmore Girls revival now has an official title AND a synopsis.
Talk about a busy weekend! Netflix is revving up the publicity machine for the Gilmore Girls: A Year In the Life (formerly Gilmore Girls: Seasons), and, although Rory (Alexis Bledel) and Lorelai (Laruen Graham) hardly need promoting, the first round of press has furnished fans with two exciting announcements.
First, Seasons is out and A Year in the Life is in. A teaser for Graham's Ellen appearance confirmed the change, although, when you boil it down, there really is no difference between the two titles. Fans are still looking at four 90-minute episodes, each associated with one of the four seasons.

Following hard on the heels of the Ellen teaser, Netflix released the official summary for the long-awaited revival. It's not much, but after a decade of waiting, we'll take whatever news the streaming giant cares to dish out.
"Three generations of Gilmore woman grapple with change and the complicated bonds of family during one year of Stars Hollow," Netflix teased (via Spoiler TV).
Of course, Emily (Kelly Bishop), Rory, and Lorelai won't go through this journey alone (and it certainly won't be as dramatic as Netflix makes it seem. This is Gilmore Girls! Laugh a little, won't ya?). Luke (Scott Patterson), Michel (Yanic Truesdale), Sookie (Melissa McCarthy) and the Stars Hollow gang will all return, as will all three of Rory's former beaus.
Sadly, however, it looks as if a massive binge-watching party does not lie in out futures. If all goes according to plan, series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino believes there will be a little breathing room between episodes. As long as they don't make us wait an actual season between eps, we'll hold off on the riots.
