At least one of Rory Gilmore’s ex-boyfriends might be returning to Stars Hollow for the Gilmore Girls revival.
Milo Ventimiglia, who starred on the beloved drama as Jess, nephew to Luke Danes (Scott Patterson) and on-again off-again love interest to Rory (Alexis Bledel), posted about the show’s Netflix revival on his Facebook page on Friday, writing that he hopes to reprise his reformed bad boy role.
"I’ve always been pretty vocal about Gilmore and I know everybody’s been waiting, and I was like, ‘That will never happen,’ and it’s totally happening," the 38-year-old actor wrote on a picture of the cast’s reunion at this year's ATX Television Festival, adding that he "got an email from the producers" while at the event.
After seven seasons on The WB and The CW, Gilmore Girls is reportedly set to return via four 90-minute Netflix episodes/mini-movies, each of which will take place during one season of a calendar year. Key cast members, including Bledel, Patterson, Lauren Graham,and Kelly Bishop, are reportedly all in talks to return.'
"Again, I’m always vocal [about] Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino; they’re two of my favorite people and two of my favorite writers ever of all time," Ventimiglia said of possibly returning for the show’s revival. "Just to be able to speak their words again, of course I would do it. So I told them, yeah, of course I’ll do it."
