Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life finally has a premiere date: Friday, Nov. 25, which coincidentally falls on Black Friday.
All four “chapters” of the revival series -- each 90-minute episode takes place over the course of a season (winter, spring, summer, fall) -- will be made available for streaming at midnight Pacific time.
The opening scene from the first “chapter” also debuted on Wednesday during summer Television Press Association press tour, which showed the adorable reunion between Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel).
In the sweet clip, it’s wintertime in Stars Hollow with Lorelai sitting in the gazebo while drinking a cup of, what else, coffee. Soon after, Rory reunites with her mother and they go right into their quick-witted signature Gilmore Girls banter, complete with Gwyneth Paltrow/Goop, Zoolander and Apple iWatch jokes.
Many of the original Gilmore Girls cast members are back to reprise their roles on the new series, including Scott Patterson, Melissa McCarthy, Kelly Bishop, Milo Ventimiglia, Matt Czuchry, Jared Padalecki, Liza Weil, Sean Gunn, Keiko Agena, Danny Strong, Yanic Truesdale and David Sutcliffe.
In the new trailer announcing the premiere date, Lorelai is seen pondering over whether Amy Schumer would “love” her. While Rory doesn’t think so (mainly because of “water sports”), Lorelai is beyond optimistic. Seriously, it’s as if time never passed.
Schumer immediately reacted to being name-dropped in the Gilmore Girls trailer. "I've only done two water sports and they took pictures of it both times. I promise I usually just lay there (sex too)," the comedian wrote. “I would love her!”
