Report: Netflix reviving Gilmore Girls for limited-series run

New, 16 comments

Netflix, the reigning champion of turning nostalgia into profit, is reportedly bringing back Gilmore Girls. The streaming service is nearing a deal with Warner Bros. to bring the show back in a limited-series setting, according to TVLine.

Premiering in 2000, Gilmore Girls followed single mother Lorelai Gilmore and teenage daughter Rory as they dealt with the various ups and downs life threw their way, including relationship drama, family issues and financial woes.

The new series will only run four episodes, with each episode running approximately 90 minutes in length, and will wrap up any loose ends the original show's finale did not in 2007.

Although the main cast (Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop and Scott Patterson) are all rumored to have already signed on to the project, the rest of the cast are only just now entering negotiations.

While it may seen like a surprising decision considering it's been over a decade since the show was on the air, Gilmore Girls has re-entered mainstream discussion rather recently.

Last September, Netflix added seven seasons to its platform and just this past summer, the entire cast reunited on stage during the ATX Television Festival in Austin.

Netflix declined comment on the story to Polygon.
