Sutton Foster, who starred alongside Gilmore Girls’ Kelly Bishop in Amy Sherman-Palladino’s short-lived Bunheads series, has joined the confirmed cast of Gilmore Girls: Seasons, the 4-episode revival planned to appear on Netflix later this year. Sutton currently can be seen on the TV Land series Younger.
It is not clear yet what role Sutton will play on the series, as she doesn’t seem to fit in with any of the known guest characters, nor how many episodes we will see her star in. For fans of Amy Sherman-Palladino’s work, this is a great crossover episode and I can’t wait to see if Sutton and Lauren Graham will have scenes together.
Some fans are hoping that Sutton will appear in-character from Bunheads, but I’m not sure that would fit with the alternate timeline we have of Kelly Bishop on Gilmore Girls!
Amy Sherman-Palladino is known for her loyalty, and often transfers actors between shows. Bunheads saw many Gilmore Girls guest stars: Kelly Bishop, Rose Abdoo, Liza Weil, Gregg Henry, Sean Gunn, Michael DeLuise and Todd Lowe.
