'Gilmore Girls' Netflix Revival Gets Premiere Date, First Promo
Time to make the coffee: Netflix's highly anticipated Gilmore Girls revival finally has a premiere date.
The four-part event will launch Nov. 25 on the streaming giant, it was announced Wednesday at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour.
All four parts of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will premiere on the same day, ending previous speculation that each of the four 90-minute installments, aptly titled "Winter," "Spring," "Summer" and "Fall," would roll out individually. Netflix normally releases all episodes of a particular season at once — with such exceptions as the Canadian horror series Between, The Ranch and the upcoming hip-hop drama The Get Down. However, Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino had previously stated she preferred the one-at-a-time strategy as opposed to the all-at-once model that Netflix has become known for.
In addition to announcing the premiere date, the streamer also unveiled the first promo for A Year in the Life. The video, as seen below, shows all the iconic Stars Hollow spots that served as the backdrop for the original series, which ran for seven seasons on The WB and then The CW. The video then cuts to a pitch-perfect, rapid-fire, pop culture-heavy exchange between mother and daughter Lorelai and Rory (Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, respectively) about John Oliver, Amy Schumer and the latter's love of water sports.
