She’ll be waiting! Lauren Graham is counting down the days until Gilmore Girls returns — just like the rest of Us! The Parenthood alum teased the Netflix revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, in a new promo, which was released on Monday, June 27.
In the clip, Graham stands in front of a backdrop of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore’s cozy town, Stars Hollow. She holds up several signs near the town square, revealing that the original series will soon be available in countries such as France, Italy, Argentina and Saudi Arabia.
“Any place you watch Netflix, you can watch Gilmore Girls starting July 1. You may have heard that new episodes of Gilmore Girls are coming to Netflix later this year. We can’t wait,” Graham, 49, says in the video. “Maybe you’ve seen Gilmore Girls, or maybe you’ve never seen Gilmore Girls and always meant to watch it.”
She adds: “Welcome to Stars Hollow. Careful, we talk fast.”
Back in January, Netflix announced that it would be bringing the show back nine years after its original run from 2000 to 2007. The reboot will be four 90-minute episodes, with each episode representing a new season — winter, spring, summer, fall. Netflix has yet to announce an official premiere date.
The highly anticipated revival reunited several of the actors, including Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore), Scott Patterson (Luke Danes), Melissa McCarthy (Sookie St. James), Milo Ventimiglia (Jess Mariano), Jared Padalecki (Dean Forester) and Matt Czuchry (Logan Huntzberger).
Graham opened up about reprising her role as Lorelai Gilmore with TVLine in January. “The fans had to want it badly enough that they didn’t stop asking. 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,” she said at the time. “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!’ But I’m even excited to do that. And just so excited to do this material. [Cocreator Amy Sherman-Palladino] sent me the scripts and I gobbled them right up. It’s all the positive aspects of running into someone you used to go out with with none of the downside. It’s like, ‘Hey, old friend! I’m happy to see you.'”
