Since 2007, fans have been longing to see the return of beloved mother and daughter, Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, to their television screens. Nearly a decade later, the Gilmore girls will reprise their roles in the revival, “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” set to launch on Netflix Nov. 25.

While much is still unknown about this much anticipated revival series, it is known that “Gilmore Girls” creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino, has taken on the role of writer and director of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” alongside her husband, Daniel Palladino, who is also an executive producer.

Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore), Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore), Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore), and Scott Patterson (Luke Danes)- sometimes referred to as the core-four- will all be reprising their roles this fall.

Graham, Bledel, Bishop, and Patterson will not be the only familiar faces in this revival. Other members of the original cast set to return include Melissa McCarthy (Sookie St. James), Keiko Agena (Lane Kim), and Liza Weil (Paris Geller), just to name a few.

Additionally, many newbies will be popping up around the corners of Stars Hollow. Broadway darling and star of Sherman-Palladino’s short-lived show “Bunheads,” Sutton Foster, is ready to join the crew. Alongside Foster and others is Mae Whitman, who viewers may know as the voice behind Tinker Bell.

Whether or not fans were satisfied with Rory Gilmore’s love life at the end of “Gilmore Girls,” all three of her former boyfriends will be returning for “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” Matt Czuchry will be reprising his role as Logan Huntzberger, Milo Ventimiglia will return as fan favorite boyfriend and Luke Danes’ bad-boy nephew, Jess Mariano, and finally Jared Padelecki rounds out the trio, reprising his role as young Rory’s first love, Dean Forester.

Many viewers are prepared to follow wherever the Gilmore girls lead this fall. “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” will premiere on Netflix at 12:01 AM on Nov. 25.
