Fans have been begging for a Gilmore Girls revival basically since the show ended in 2007. Now Netflix and Warner Bros. have picked up the popular The CW show for a four-episode special season eight.
The original cast will return:
- Lauren Graham as Lorelai Gilmore,
- Alexis Bledel as Rory Gilmore,
- Scott Patterson as Luke Danes,
- Kelly Bishop as Emily Gilmore,
- Sean Gunn as Kirk Gleason and
- Keiko Agena as Lane Kim.
No return for Melissa McCartney as Sookie it would seem due to the actress’s tight schedule. However, the producers are keen to have her back on board for the revival.
Thanks for the invite, but sadly no one asked me or Sookie to come back to Stars Hollow. Wish them all the best!! https://t.co/II2Atug4wx
