Life isn't going quite as planned for Gilmore Girls' Rory.
The Stars Hollow gang is back, but, after nearly a decade away, your favs might not be exactly where you foresaw way back in 2007. Although she's as fastidious and intelligent as ever, Rory (Alexis Bledel) will find herself wondering why she isn't hitting her goals.
"It's this idea of, you hit [your 30s], you did everything right - you went to college, you had the good grades, you worked really hard - and yet somehow life isn't turning out the way you wanted it to turn out," series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino told TV Line. "And because the world is changing [so quickly] I think that's something a lot of very well educated [thirtysomething] kids are going through. They're turning around going, 'I did it. I did the homework. I did the finals. I did the whole thing. I know the s-t. Why am I not getting where I need to go?'"
An early photo for the revival placed Rory back in the hallowed halls of Chilton, her high school alma mater. Now at the head of the class, Rory looks the part of Ms. Gilmore, English teacher. While we think the Yale grad would make an excellent educator, didn't she want to be the next Christiane Amanpour? We're still holding onto the assumption that Rory's merely dropping by as a guest lecturer.
Rory won't be the only Gilmore dealing with change, whether that involves fighting the inevitable or looking to break out of a rut.
"It's about three women at a crossroads in each of their lives," Sherman-Palladino teased.
