Gilmore Girls makes its much-anticipated return on Netflix next month with four memorable chapters from the lives of Lorelai, Emily, Rory and countless more Stars Hollow stalwarts. Picking up nine years after we last dropped in on the whimsical Connecticut town, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life finds each of our leading ladies at a major crossroad: Lorelai’s relationship with Luke is at an unnerving standstill; Rory’s budding journalism career in New York has stalled before it’s even begun; and Emily’s world is turned upside down following the untimely passing of her beloved husband, Richard.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is told through four 90-minute chapters — each spanning one season: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall — and brings back to life everything from the quaint corner diner to the dreamy Dragonfly Inn to a fast-talking, quick-witted mother-daughter love story unlike any other.
The trailer also gives us glimpses at all the things we love about Gilmore Girls: Lorelai and Rory stuffing their faces with junk good and coffee, awkward Friday night dinner (with Kirk!), Taylor lording over a meeting, and Sookie (Melissa McCarthy) having a little accident in the kitchen.
“Haven’t done that for a while,” Lorelai says with a grin. Rory smiles. “Felt good!”
Yes, it does!
All four 90-minute episodes of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” begin streaming Friday, Nov. 25 on Netflix.
