Welcome back, Lorelai Gilmore!
As Gilmore Girls fans anxiously await the Netflix revival of the beloved CW dramedy, we've been graced with our first sneak peek at the reunited cast.
Yanic Truesdale, who played grumpy French concierge Michel Gerard at both the Independence and Dragonfly Inns, shared a photo with Lorelai -- aka leading lady Lauren Graham -- from the Los Angeles set on Friday.
"First day back at the Inn with my old boss. Fun times!" he captioned the selfie, which the duo took in front of the very familiar staircase of the Dragonfly.
Graham was the one who officially confirmed that the Gilmore Girlsreunion series was a-go
, tweeting last week, "I CAN NOW CONFIRM: it's time for me, and this jacket I stole in 2007, to return to work."
Scott Patterson, who plays Lorelai's on-and-off again love, Luke Danes, was clearly excited that the news was out. He shared a photo of both a plaid shirt with a Luke's Diner pin attached to it and a toolbox from the set, with the latter given the hashtag, #GilmoreGirls.
All of the cast members seem stoked to come back. Keiko Agena, who plays Rory Gilmore's best friend, Lane Kim, posted an Instagram with one of Gilmore Girls' original producers, Helen Pai, on Jan. 21, captioning it, "Good things are coming…"
Graham, Truesdale, Patterson and Agena will be joined by original castmembers Alexis Bledel (Rory), Kelly Bishop (Emily) Sean Gunn (Kirk) and Matt Czuchry (Logan). The nine-year reunion will consist of four 90-minute episode/mini-movies, each taking place during a different season in the calendar year. Original producers Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino will write and direct all of the episodes.
Now we just have one more request: Can we please get a picture of Lorelai and Luke next? Even Mrs. Kim would approve of that!
The one major name that hasn't been confirmed yet
is Melissa McCarthy, who played Lorelei’s BFF Sookie St. James in the original series. Find out why in the video below.
