Rory'll Ride Again! A Gilmore Girls Revival is Looking Likely

Gilmore Girls has become the latest show that streaming service Netflix is looking to revive, with reboots of Full House and another season of Arrested Development already in the works.

It seem Netflix are currently in talks with series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino about bringing back our favourite mother-daughter duo Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) for what would be four 90-minute movies as opposed to a ten-episode series.

Gilmore Girls ran for seven seasons from 2000-2007 and there have been rumours of a revival of the popular series since the cast reunited over the summer at the ATX Television Festival,  where Sherman-Palladino kept the hope alive saying; "There is nothing in the works. But the good news is, nobody here hates each other."  She added too that if they ever did decide to do a reboot, they'd "do it correctly."

Most of the cast seem up for returning too, with actor Scott Patterson, who played Luke Danes on the show also hinting at the revival over the summer; "I can’t really go into any details, but there is some activity. I’m hopeful, and I’m in. I think it would be a big event, and I think it would be a great fan celebration."

Perhaps we may even finally get to see Lorelai and Luke tie the knot? Although sadly her dad wouldn't be there to walk her down the aisle as actor Edward Hermann, who played Richard Gilmore on the show, passed away at the end of 2014.

It looks like Lorelai wouldn't have her bestie Sookie there as a bridesmaid either as Melissa McCarthy is said to not be involved in the talks for the revival. Well she is kind of a big deal now.


Still though, 12 more hours of Stars Hollow sounds pretty good to us!

Let's just hope they keep the theme tune...

(Everybody! You know you know the words...)
