It's true: Gilmore Girls is coming back!
Netflix is reportedly reviving the beloved series with creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and original stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel as everyone's favorite mother-daughter duo, Lorelai and Rory Gilmore.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix (which is also working on a Full House spinoff) is planning to resurrect the classic Warner Bros. dramedy in the form of four 90-minute movies, instead of its usual 13-episode format. TVLine reports that the online streaming platform has secured a deal.
Gilmore Girls initially ran from 2000 to 2007, garnering a fiercely loyal fan base over the course of its seven seasons on The WB and CW. The first six seasons were helmed by Sherman-Palladino before a contract dispute with Warner Bros. led her to exit the show before its final run. A Netflix revival would represent not only a comeback for Sherman-Palladino, but the chance for her to finally end the series the way she intended.
When asked about the possibility of a Gilmore Girls reboot at the ATX Television Festival in June, Sherman-Palladino admitted, "it would have to be the right everything—the right format, the right timing. If it ever happened, I promise we'll do it correctly."
Graham took to Twitter to say that she can't share any information. "DUDES. I can't confirm this. But I also can't deny this..." she tweeted.
