Three generations of Gilmore women grapple with change and the complicated bonds of family during one year in Stars Hollow. (official synopsis via Netflix)
Rejoice and be glad fellow Stars Hollow-ians!
For Lorelai (Lauren Graham), Rory (Alexis Bledel), Luke (Scott Patterson), Sookie (Melissa McCarthy), Emily (Kelly Bishop), Lane (Keiko Agena) and pretty much everyone else is back including the delightfully weird Kirk (Sean Gunn) – at Friday night dinner no less! What’s with that? – and alive and large and throwing around glorious pop culture references like confetti.
In the first full trailer for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, which premieres on Netflix 25 November with 4 x 90 minute episodes each covering one season of the year, we are treated to Sookie doing accidentally pornographic things with a tube of foodstuff to her great embarrassment, Lorelai and Rory engaged in animated conversations in and around Stars Hollow, Friday night dinners with Emily sadly sans Richard (Edward Hermann) – who does however have an enormous portrait that takes up an entire wall – appearances by Jess (Milo Ventimiglia), Dean (Jared Padalecki), Taylor (Michael Winters), Michel (Yanic Truesdale) and pretty much everyone your Girlmore Girls-loving heart desires.
What is so arresting about the trailer – if you want a blow-by-blow run down of the trailer head to Vulture, and to Mashable for ten top trailer moments including, of course a kiss from the greatest ship ever, thank you Lorelai and Luke – is the way it beautifully captures everything we love about Gilmore Girls while quite perfectly moving everything forward.
Roll on 25 November – 26 November in Australia – and don’t forget to bring a running pig with you when you come over to watch OK?
