This news is relevant to the interests of basically every person.

TV Line reports that Netflix is working on a limited revival of the classic mother-daughter dramedy series Gilmore Girls. Having reportedly closed the deal with series creator and head writer Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino, Netflix is now said to be negotiating with key members of the cast (including Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, and Scott Patterson). TV Line says the cast is expected to sign on, but until then, nothing is final.

Rory and Jess forever

Palladino didn't have a hand in writing the almost unanimously disappointing seventh season, and this would give her a chance to tie up all of her loose ends with the characters.

The revival is believed to be coming in the form of four 90-minute episodes — plenty of time for tons of unanswered questions to see blessed resolution. It's time to start hypothesizing about what fan fantasies could hypothetically become TV reality — Luke and Lorelai's tasteful and well-catered DIY wedding? Rory and Jess? Paris Geller at The New York Times? Emily Gilmore as a late-in-life radical feminist? Anything is possible, and in fact, it's still possible that these negotiations may fall apart and your dreams may be crushed. Bear that in mind.
