Back in October, the TV Fairy Godmothers granted all our small screen wishes by providing us with a Netflix-based Gilmore Girls revival and, since that time, we’ve been waiting with bated breath for more news. I mean, we know that there’s going to be a time jump in this revival. We also know that it will consist of four episodes (one for each season, which is really cool), and it will be chock full of whole lotta nostalgia courtesy of Team Palladino. But, what else? We need MORE to satisfy our curious, Gilmore Girls-loving brains!
Luckily, TVLine’s Michael Ausiello has the inside scoop, is willing to share his beautiful knowledge with the world, and has caused us to come up with the term “Fairy Godfather.”
Someone named Maureen sent in a question for our Fairy Godfather and asked, “Anything new on the Gilmore Girls revival?” (Shout-out to Maureen because she stepped up and took one for the team!)
The answer: “What would you say if I told you that one of the main four characters (i.e. Lorelai, Rory, Emily, or Luke) will be getting a new love interest? Spit it out, Maureen — what would you say?!?!?”
Alright, so we don’t currently have Maureen on speed dial, but we have a feeling that this would be her response: OH. MY. GOD.
Now that we’ve taken several yoga breaths, we’re wondering, which of the four is it?! Could it be Rory, who was independent and empowered when we last saw her? Luke and Lorelei seemed to have a change of heart in the series finale – but, then again, things change – so maybe these two are in the market for a new partner? Or, is it Emily? Since the late, great Edward Herrmann is no longer with us, who will be the Richard to her Emily? (Not that the iconic Richard Gilmore can ever be replaced, of course.)
Alas, we must wait for our TV Fairy Godmothers and Fathers to shower us with additional info. In the meantime, we’re going to hum the Gilmore Girls theme song to keep our excitement levels at an even keel.
