Watch the first teaser for the ‘Gilmore Girls’ revival
LOS ANGELES– Welcome back to Stars Hollow.
Netflix’s first official trailer for “Gilmore Girls: A Day in the Life,” which it released Wednesday, is here to remind you that some things never change, especially the Gilmore girls.
The teaser features brief glimpses of iconic Stars Hollow spots as well as a scene in which Lorelai and Rory ponder whether Lorelai would get along with comedian Amy Schumer. It’s a classic wordy exchange between the mother-daughter duo, and it has already prompted Schumer to tweet a response.
Netflix dropped the 90-second spot on the same day it presented a panel on the show for the Television Critics Association press tour.
At the presentation, reporters were also shown the first two minutes of the revival. The footage shows Lorelai sitting in a town’s gazebo sipping coffee as Rory approaches from the background.
“It feels like it’s been years,” Rory says to her mother.
“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” will premiere on Netflix on November 25.
The series, which will consist of four 90-minute films, will cover one year in the characters’ lives.
Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino did not rule out the possibility of more episodes to come, but said for the moment, “this is what it is.”
“We put these together, we told these stories, and now we throw them out to the universe,” she told reporters.
Sherman-Palladino had initially hoped to release the episodes one at a time, but she said Netflix was not open to the idea.
“You don’t always get what you want,” she said.
Fans, however, will get what they have been wanting since the show went off the air in 2007: the mysterious final four words.
Sherman-Palladino, who left the show before the final season, has long said she always knew what she wanted to be the final four words of the show. But since she exited earlier than anticipated, her plan never came to fruition. The Netflix show will end with those words.
“It’s going to mean a lot less if you flip to the last page,” she said of possible spoilers leaking. “That said, what am I going to do?”
