It was recently confirmed that Jared Padalecki would be returning to Gilmore Girls to reprise his role as Dean Forrester, appearing in the Netflix revival Gilmore Girls: Seasons, joining a long list of confirmed Gilmore Girls actors (just updated today!) including Milo Ventimiglia as Jess and Matt Czuchry as Logan.
Although we don’t yet know how many episodes that Jared will appear in (which could be significant), it is clear that he will be in the first episode, Winter. Jared did a little video on his Facebook page talking about all his current projects, including Gilmore Girls. Starting at the 4-minute mark:
“I’m very excited, I will be filming this week. Wish me luck! I get to play the ‘original’ Dean, which I’m excited about. I haven’t been back to LA in a while, and I get to go back to Stars Hollow, so I’m super excited and I’m so happy that Amy and the gang could work me in to it, and I hope you get to watch it soon.”
Howdy! Going live to talk about some exciting stuff coming up!

So, this leads me to conclude that Jared may only appear back in one episode of Gilmore Girls, but perhaps he’s just keeping those details quiet? Given the busy schedule mentioned in the video, my guess is that #TeamDean will just need to be happy with a small returning role.
What do you think?
