As November 25th approaches, more and more information and teasers about the upcoming Gilmore Girls revival is coming to light.
Of course, we’re still in the dark about major plot points for Gilmore Girl: A Year in the Life, which returns to Netflix for four special 90 minute episodes in just over a month, but we’re pretty sure that things are gonna get super emotional.
Now Lauren Graham, who plays Lorelai Gilmore, has said that we’ll probably need tissues at the ready for when the show returns.
Speaking to E! News at the premiere of her new movie Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, Lauren was cautious to glow about the show’s upcoming revival.
While Gilmore Girls is certainly known for its quick pop culture quips and fast talking dialogue, the show packs a real emotional punch. We still well up when we think about when Luke and Lore called an end to their relationship, and definitely wept when Rory and Dean broke up at Stars Hollow’s annual 24-hour dance marathon.
When quizzed about which of Rory’s boyfriends she’d pick, Lauren was quick to say that she really couldn’t make a decision. We know that all of Rory’s ex’s are to make a return for the revival, and we’re still unsure who we’d love her to end up with.
Instead, Lauren said that the four feature length episodes would be an emotional ride. When asked if audiences were going to cry, she said:
It’s possible that the actress could be referring to the pictures of a funeral that have been released. The sad death of Edward Herrmann, who played Richard Gilmore, Lorelai’s father and Rory’s grandfather, is being written into the show. And from what Scott Patterson, who plays Luke Danes, said, there are repercussions felt throughout.
Eek! We’re not sure we’re ready to get super emotional. We feel so invested in these characters, which is why we’re so excited about the show’s return. However, we’re not sure we’re ready for things to go pear shaped for the characters. We know that there needs to be drama, but sometimes we wish things would just be happy for everyone. We think we’re gonna need HEAPS of coffee for this one…
Hopefully, despite all the tears, the residents of Stars Hollow will all be happy in the end.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life comes to Netflix on November 25th.
