The Official Name For The New 'Gilmore Girls' Revival Has Been Revealed

Warner Bros. Television Distribution

With both “Parenthood” and “Gilmore Girls” off the air, it's been difficult to find new Lauren Graham content to cry-laugh and laugh-cry to, but that's all about to change.

Last fall, rumors of a return to Stars Hollow were confirmed by “Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino at the ATX Television Festival.

Now, a title has been chosen for the show's new season, coming soon to Netflix.

“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” is about to fill that Gilmore-shaped hole in your heart.

On Thursday, Graham ran from the “GG” set across the street to that of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to announce the limited run's title.

In a clip shared on Twitter and Ellentube, THE Lorelai Gilmore told viewers,

It's four 90-minute episodes and they're Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall so the show is called 'Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.'

The actress confirmed everyone's suspicions filming has essentially been an unbridled bliss parade, the likes of which most of us will never experience at any point in our empty, Rory-less lives.

She told Ellen,

It's been the most incredible experience. I cry trying to talk about it because… I feel so lucky to get to do it, but it's also been so bizarre because I open the door and and we're across the street from you, which wasn't the case before, but the set is the same, but we're in a different place. So, It's like it was yesterday, but also it was not yesterday.

Stepping back into Lorelai's shoes wasn't the least bit difficult for Graham, despite having said "goodbye" to the character nearly a decade ago.

She said,

I love this character so much and I had the same feeling I had when I first opened that script, which was just such a deep connection. And to get to do it again, who would've imagined? Netflix had to be invented, you guys had to want it back… which is… Thank you.

Knowing a title is set and promotional tweets are being posted will likely leave diehard fans awake at night with anticipation until the season is released.


Though a release date hasn't been announced, Graham will likely spill more info when the full episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” airs Monday.

Until then, fans will just have to do what it takes to manage their excitement.


Hang tight, "GG" freaks, your girls will be back any day now.
