The official trailer for Netflix's much-hyped Gilmore Girls revival is here, and if you're the sort of person that interests, you might want to sit down and take a deep breath before you watch it.
Everyone is back. All of the casting rumors were true, and you'll see Kelly Bishop as Emily Gilmore, Melissa McCarthy as Sookie St. James, and, crucially, Sean Gunn as Kirk. All of Rory's old loves are accounted for as well, though Jess is the only one who speaks (to reassure Rory that she's "still a contender.") Jess would quote On the Waterfront in his two seconds of trailer time. There's also a Ben Affleck joke, because Rory and Lorelai are obviously Team Jen!
Emily is packing up and clearing out her house after the death of her husband Richard (who was played in the original series by the late Edward Herrmann), so that's sure to be an emotional time for us all. Rory is unemployed and talking about doing peyote. Luke and Lorelai are holding hands, thank god. Stars Hollow is coming back into our lives, thank god.
The four-part miniseries will be released in full on Netflix on November 25th.
