Sources have confirmed to TV Line that Netflix will be home to a limited series revival of “Gilmore Girls.” Netflix has reportedly closed a deal with Warner Bros. for four 90 minute movies, which will be written by series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino.
“Gilmore Girls” first aired on The WB in October 2000. The show followed Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel), the beloved, fast talking, pop culture loving mother daughter duo, as the two navigated their lives in small town fictional Stars Hollow, Connecticut. Melissa McCarthy played Sookie, Lorelai’s best friend and business partner. Scott Patterson, Kelly Bishop, Edward Herrmann, Jared Padalecki, Sean Gunn, Milo Ventimiglia, Matt Czuchry and Chad Michael Murray are among the many actors that also appeared on the show. Although no contracts are confirmed, Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop and Scott Patterson are expected back for the revival.
Although the show aired for 7 seasons (airing its finale in October 2007), both Amy and Daniel Palladino left the show in 2006. Speaking at a panel at the ATX Television Fesitval this past June, Amy said of the departure, “The last season was the last season, shit happens.” Amy has been vocal about always knowing how she wanted to end the show. Right after news broke of her departure, she told TV Guide she even had the last four words of the show planned. Perhaps now we’ll all finally know what those words are.
Netflix has not confirmed the news yet, but Lauren Graham unofficially (officially) did.
DUDES. I can’t confirm this. But I also can’t deny this… https://t.co/KO8gA7j6Us

WE HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS. Who does Rory end up with? Will it be Dean (Padalecki), Jess (Ventimiglia), Logan (Czuchry) (PLEASE), or someone new? What about Lorelei? She ends up with Luke, right? How will the death of Edward Herrmann be addressed? What are the last words, “Let’s go to Luke’s?”
