GILMORE GIRLS Revival
The Gilmores are coming the Gilmores are coming!
The official revival Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life was released on Netflix on November 25, 2016. The show consists of four 90-minute episodes, “Winter.” “Spring,” “Summer” and “Fall.”
It's a great way to catch up with all the Stars Hollow characters, the light-speed conversations, and the supreme sarcasm. (Netflix began steaming Gilmore Girls in 2014. You can watch all seven season of the show plus the revival!)
