Gilmore Girls was/is a beloved little TV show that began airing in 2000 and ended after 7 seasons (153 episodes), but I’m sure we don’t need to tell you that! Since Gilmore Girls is such a hit on Netflix streaming, they have decided to get a revival going with Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham, everyone’s fave mother-daughter-combo Lorelai and Rory Gilmore.
According to multiple sources, Netflix is looking to approach the revival as four 90-minute movies as opposed to a 10-episode series. The Warner Bros. dramedy, which launched in 2000, has been a strong performer for the streaming service.
Though many of the original actors are in talks to return, too, Melissa McCarthy (Sookie St. James) is not expected to be one of them. Since Gilmore wrapped in 2007, McCarthy’s career has skyrocketed, with star vehicles on TV (Mike & Molly) and in film (The Heat, Ghostbusters). – The Hollywood Reporter
