Although rumors have been swirling in the crisp Connecticut air since last summer, we are now officially officially getting a Gilmore Girl’s reboot. So, ok then.

Netflix and Warner Bros. Television hammered out the deal for the sure-to-be disappointing revival because that’s the way re-dos of beloved television shows and movies usually work out.

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that most of the gang will be back, with creators Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino writing and directing all the episodes as well as the original stars, Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Scott Patterson, Kelly Bishop, Sean Gunn and Keiko Agena.


Can’t say I’m at all excited about this, but it will be interesting to see how they handle the absence of Richard Gilmore, played by Edward Herrmann, who died in 2014. Additionally, Melissa McCarthy, who played Sookie St. James, is not expected to return.

Other than that, there are no real details. The title hasn’t been announced nor have the number of episodes. We’ll also have to wait to find out where the reboot picks up and whether or not Rory has finally achieved a shred of emotional maturity after almost ten years.

Ok, what are everyone’s hopes for the characters? Here are mine:

-Christopher is dead because mY GOD if they try to break Luke and Lorelai up again with him I will KEEL SOMEONE IT’S OVER SHE CHOSE LUKE THE END!

-Rory is single and drinks a bottle of wine alone every night in her tiny journalist-salary apartment because her entitled “all the boys love meeeee for some reason” bullshit stopped being cute once she hit thirty.

-After an appropriate period as a grieving widow, Emily gets her groove back with a sexy older working-class-type gentleman who shows her a wild side Richard never could and she finally gets why Lorelai found Luke so appealing.

-Lane and Zach are back with Hep Alien and they are touring and their kids are super cute, and Mrs. Kim comes along to babysit and provides comic relief as they get super famous.

-Kirk is dead because he is so effing annoying.

-Melissa McCarthy makes a SURPRISE re-appearance as Sookie and becomes the SURPRISE main character of the show and all the other characters bow in deference to HER.

-Lauren Graham’s hair is still fabulous.

What else y’all got?
