Pack your bags! We're going back to Stars Hollow!

Lauren Graham -- aka Lorelai Gilmore, herself -- confirmed that we are, in fact, getting a Gilmore Girls revival on Netflix. "I CAN NOW CONFIRM: it's time for me, and this jacket I stole in 2007, to return to work," she tweeted.

Netflix also shared the news, tweeting "OY with the poodles, already!" simultaneously revealing that Alexis Bledel and series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino will be back for the so-called "final season."

Keiko Agena all but confirmed the rumors last week when she posted an Instagram with the real-life Lane Kim -- Sherman-Palladino's best friend, Helen Pai -- and captioned it, "Good things are coming..."

But now it's official official.

Graham, Bledel, and Agena will be joined by original castmembers Scott Patterson (Luke), Kelly Bishop (Emily), and Sean Gunn (Kirk), ET can confirm.

We previously learned that the nine-year reunion will consist of four 90-minute episode/mini-movies, each taking place during a different season in one calendar year (i.e. one for spring, summer, fall, and winter).

So, what about Gilmore guys like Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) and Dean (Jared Padalecki)?

The former has already made it know that he's interested."Just to be able to speak their words again, of course I would do it. I told [Sherman-Palladino and executive producer producer Daniel Palladino], 'Yeah, of course I'll do it,'" Ventimiglia said at last year's ATX Television Festival

Meanwhile, Liza Weil (Paris Geller) recently told ET that she's just waiting for the call. "I'm still waiting to officially join, but I'm really hoping to be involved," the How to Get Away With Murder star explained. "I'm just excited to see these people in any capacity again, so the prospect of being back on that set and in those sets and with those people again -- that's kind of a big wish fulfillment."

But will Melissa McCarthy return as Sookie St. James?! Please say so!
