Now that Netflix’s long-awaited Gilmore Girls revival has wrapped production with the majority of its former cast, fans are awash with hype for the actual premiere. Netflix has yet to set a date, but we’ll soon have Gilmore Girls all year round, judging by the official title and its poster.
It seems like only yesterday, that Netflix announced an end to the drug-induced haze that followed all our collective anguish at Gilmore Girls’ final season, in staging a long-awaited revival. Now, we’re already back in Stars Hollow, as the first official photos of new Gilmore Girls have arrived.
If ever you wondered how non-Star Wars fans feel about the flurry of casting news dominating airwaves between each movie, Netflix’s Gilmore Girls may offer a clue. All three of Rory’s boyfriends will now return for the revival, including Jared Padalecki, Milo Ventimiglia and more, as the internet continues to lose its collective mind.
It’s a tale as old as TV, one show giving rise to a mega-star among the ranks, and Gilmore Girls has had its share both before and after Melissa McCarthy. Sadly, it doesn’t appear as if the Ghostbusters star will reprise her role as Sookie St. James for Netflix’s long-heralded Gilmore revival, according to a chilly tweet from the star.
It was October we first learned that Netflix might roll the Gilmore Girls off their revival conveyor belt, and whatever took them so long, Rory and Lorelai are at last confirmed for four feature-length revival specials. Who else may drop by, you ask? We’ve got details, come and get ‘em.
Were you to chart out two separate columns of iconic TV series that do, and don’t deserve revivals, Netflix’s Fuller House would undoubtedly fall on the right side, though it may yet have cleared room for something fans actually wanted. Yes, the Gilmore Girls will return with a Netflix revival of their own, potentially bringing fans four new movie-length specials.
'Violet and Daisy,' the directorial debut from Geoffrey Fletcher (Academy Award-winning screenwriter of 'Precious,' of all things), stars Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel as two teenage assassins. The film struggles to showcase the duplicitous nature of societal projections onto young women with its twee style and stylized dialogue, and even a look beneath the surface finds little else beyond its saccharine trappings.
Earlier tonight we heard that FOX had picked up four major new dramas to series, though the network's announcements are far from over. FOX has also granted series orders to 'SNL' vet Andy Samberg's new detective comedy 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' under 'Parks and Recreation' showrunner Mike Schur,' along with Seth MacFarlane's 'Dads' and three others. Get the inside scoop on FOX's new comedy lineup inside!
Though the 'Mad Men' episode "Dark Shadows" aired a number of weeks ago, and certainly isn't the most recent shocker to come from the series of late, many people are still talking about Alexis Bledel's risque turn as adulterous housewife Beth. Not so much that everyone's favorite 'Gilmore Girl' has popped up on 'Mad Men,' of course, but rather now much she almost popped out! Who's still talking about it, you ask? How about 'Gilmore Girls' series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino?
