The confirmation post came with an announcement by the streaming giant, which announced that along with Lauren Graham, the reboot will see Alexis Bledel (Rory), Kelly Bishop (Grandma Emily), Scott Patterson (Luke), Sean Gunn (Kirk), and Keiko Agena (Lane) return to their roles. Though Melissa McCarthy who played the lovable Sookie, will not reprise her role after her rise to stardom, as well Edward Hermann, who played Richard Gilmore has since passed away.
Showrunner, Amy Sherman-Palladino will be back in the reigns of the show as writer and director, despite being fired before the series seventh and final season.
It was recently reported that the new series would be broken up in to four 90 minute episodes, but that has not been confirmed. Gilmore Girls joins the likes of Arrested Development and the soon-to-premiere Fuller House, riding the nostalgia train all the way to Netflix station.
