If you thought you were excited about the Gilmore Girls revival already, then just wait until you hear what Netflix has done in preparation for it. As of right now, you can add Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life to your Netflix queue. No, the revival still does not have a release date or a teaser, but Netflix has already created a beautiful, coffee adorned page for the series. What are the benefits of adding the series to your queue right now? You will be notified the minute the Gilmore Girls revival hits Netflix, and you will likely get a nudge whenever the first trailer drops. Those are perks your inner Lorelai should want to take advantage of.
All you have to do to find this majestic landing page for all things Gilmore, is to type Gilmore Girls into the search bar on Netflix. The page for the new series will pop up along with the official summary of the revival. Oh, did I fail to mention that part? My bad, you guys, there is now an official summary of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life!
According to Netflix, "Three generations of Gilmore women grapple with change and the complicated bonds of family during one year in Stars Hollow." In a general sense, this is not new news, but one thing the summary makes clear is the revival is focusing on Lorelai, Rory, and Emily equally. The revival is about the Gilmore women and their connections to each other above all else.
As fun as it is to speculate about Lorelai and Rory's love lives, knowing the revival is putting its primary focus on the three generations of Gilmore women is a relief. Lorelai, Rory, and Emily have always had a beautifully complex relationship, and now that Richard is gone seeing the different ways the women pull together and apart over the course of a year will be brilliant. Having the revival keep the Gilmore women as its focal point is only going to make these four episodes all the more rewarding.
While I am still anxiously awaiting a release date or a trailer, just seeing the landing page for the revival is enough of a reminder for now that Lorelai, Rory, Emily, and Stars Hollow are truly coming back. This is not some beautiful dream you are going to wake up from, Gilmore Girls fans. The girls are coming back and now you can anxiously check your Netflix queue every single day for up to the minute release date news.
Copper boom! The Gilmore Girls revival is closer than ever before.
