The Gilmore Girls Revival Trailer Proves Some Things Never Change in Stars Hollow (and Sets a Release Date)

Oy with the poodles, already! It’s a good day to be a Gilmore Girls fan. The hotly anticipated four-part Netflix revival of the show, called A Year in the Life, has finally set a premiere date: Nov. 25. (That’s plenty of time to binge-watch all seven existing seasons, so get going.)

The announcement came with a trailer that highlights the revival’s seasonal theme, with each part focusing on a different time of year—spring, summer, fall, and winter—in Stars Hollow. But the real takeaway of the trailer is a scene with the show’s mother-daughter team, played by Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel. A lot has changed in the almost 10 years since the original Gilmore Girls went off the air, but some things never do, the trailer assures us, and sure enough, Lorelai and Rory, sitting at the kitchen table, eating Pop Tarts, and talking a mile a minute, seem much the same as they did when we last left them.

Sure, the pop culture references may be modern—Amy Schumer! John Oliver!—but Lorelai is still a chatterbox, and Rory is still a bookworm, even with an iPhone in her hand. Let the countdown to November begin.
