“We haven’t even started shooting and I haven’t even seen any of the scripts,” the actress, 48, revealed in a video posted by Logo TV Friday, January 29, after the show won the New Now Next TV Honoree Award (the show airs on Logo Monday at 10 p.m. EST). “All I can tell you is it is because of you, the devoted fans, that I get to revisit this character and go back to this world. And we are all so excited and so thankful.”
Graham starred as Lorelai Gilmore on the WB series from 2000 to 2007. She wrapped up the sixth and final season of the NBC drama Parenthood in 2015.
“The fans had to want it badly enough that they didn’t stop asking,” Graham said of the long-awaited Gilmore Girls revival in an interview with TVLine. “The outpouring of enthusiasm and joy is just completely humbling and so appreciated. I sound like some terrible self-help guru, but I feel so full of appreciation. And then I look at the schedule, which is, like, 40 days of night work, and I’m like, ‘Oh, yeah! I remember this job!’”
Graham added that fans are going to be very happy with the revival and that there’s “definitely some resolution that we didn’t get [at the end of the series’ original run].”
Alexis Bledel, Scott Patterson, Kelly Bishop, Sean Gunn and Keiko Agena are all set to return for the series reboot. The show’s title and premiere date have yet to be announced.
