We’ve dreamed of it. We’ve asked (ok, begged) for it. And now it’s happening! It’s not a Gilmore Girls movie, or a Gilmore Girls one-off reunion episode, it’s better! TV Line reports that Netflix has closed a deal with Warner Bros. for a limited-series revival of Gilmore Girls (let’s just call it Gilmore Girls Season 8), penned by original series creators Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino.
Gilmore Girls is coming back!! And it’s coming back in the episodic-witty-amazing way we all love!
Negotiations with the cast are underway, but it appears major players such as Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop and Scott Patterson are all expected back. Lauren “can’t confirm it,” but that’s enough of a yes, isn’t it? Really, I can’t think of a reason anyone would say no to working with this amazing cast, and amazing writing team, to close up the series. After all, look at the amazing turnout for the ATX Festival reunion!
DUDES. I can’t confirm this. But I also can’t deny this… https://t.co/KO8gA7j6Us

There have been rumours for years about the potential for a Gilmore Girls Reunion of some sort, and it always seemed like there was a hold-up. Most recently, Amy Sherman-Palladino noted that if a reunion happened it would have to be “right,” and we’e hopeful this is the case here. The cast all want to come back, we’ve known that for a while, and I think their support (for each other and from fans) at the ATX Festival reinforced what an amazing community YOU all are. It’s my opinion that we were just waiting on Warner Bros. to agree to move forward with a reunion of some sort, as the ones holding the rights to the series.
What made this happen? What made it possible? I think it is all of YOU. The fans. The fans who watched the series from the start never stopped loving it. We watch again and again. And with each new set of reruns, on each new network and finally on Netflix, the fan base has just kept on growing. It never went away. And now, we’re seeing enough of a fan base for Netflix to knock on some doors and see some opportunity.
It’s BACK!! Gilmore Girls is coming BACK! Yay for New Gilmore Girls!!
So, who else thinks I should give this site a facelift to live up to the modern Gilmore Girls coming soon?!
