Sutton Foster Joins Gilmore Girls Revival

Share

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.

    And additional cross-over characters included Jon Polito [pizza man vs town counsel], Alex Borstein in an unrecognizable 10 second bit, and the preacher/golf chart man as an attendee at Bunheads movie night.

    Could always have a dueling ballet competition between Sutton’s Bunhead girls [bringing back the quartet !!] versus Miss Patty’s older students.
