It's been eight years since Gilmore Girls went off the air, but we're one step closer to setting foot in Stars Hollow again! Lauren Graham revealed to Ellen DeGeneres, in a clip posted Thursday, that the Netflix reboot of the show has been given a new name as well as a brand-new format.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, as the revival is called, will consist of four 90-minute episodes, each of which will take place in a different season—winter, spring, summer, and fall. Although Netflix hasn't revealed the project's release date, Graham told DeGeneres that filming is almost complete. "It's been the most incredible experience," Graham added. "I cry trying to talk about it because I feel so lucky to get to do it."

Netflix also released the first look at art for the series, below:

The actress confessed that although everything seemed like it "fell back into place," returning to the hallowed Gilmore Girls set has been a little bit bizarre at times. "It's like it was yesterday, but also it was not yesterday. I love this character so much and I had the same feeling I had when I first opened the script which was, just such a deep connection. To get to do it again, who would have imagined?"
