Already dreading Thanksgiving and all the family drama that comes with it? Well, this year you might have four brand-new Gilmore Girls episodes to help get you through the holiday funk.
No one does comedic family dysfunction quite like Rory (Alexis Bledel), Lorelai (Laruen Graham) and Emily (Kelly Bishop), not even after your Great Aunt Agnes has found her way into the blackberry brandy. It seems fitting, therefore, that Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life make it's debut when everyone's circling the wagons for America's greatest demonstration of familial mayhem.
According to TV Line, the Netflix revival will either drop the Tuesday before or the Tuesday after Turkey Day. For those either looking to escape the festivities or those far from home and in need of a little pick-me-up, a pre-Thanksgiving release would be best.
Originally, series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino was angling for a staggered release schedule. Although it would cut into viewers binging plans, a week-to-week unveiling would certainly keep anticipation high.
"My preference would be they would not be released at once, because I feel like there's going to be anticipation, and I think the diehard fans would enjoy it more with a little separation," the writer informed TV Line.
Nevertheless, it sounds like Netflix will opt for its standard model.
Previously titled Gilmore Girls: Seasons, the revival will consist of four 90-minute episodes appropriately titled "Winter," "Spring," "Summer," and "Fall." Picking up in real time (nearly 10 years since The CW bid farewell to the beloved town of Stars Hollow), A Year in the Life will reacquaint viewers with everyone from Rory and Lorelai to Lane, Paris, and Luke. As expected, all three of Rory's former love interests will pop up, although, with three episodes lined up, it sounds like fans will see Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) the most.
