The Gilmore Girls will be home for the holidays this year. The Gilmore Girls revival series Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, premiered on Netflix in 2016 and is still available there. But this year, the four-part revival series will also air on The CW, the original home of the original series. Here's when Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will air on The CW so you don't miss a moment in Stars Hollow.
There's something about the cozy vibes of Gilmore Girls that makes it the perfect fall show. So, it makes perfect sense that The CW will air A Year in the Life just in time for Thanksgiving. The network will air the miniseries over the course of four nights beginning Nov. 23 and concluding on Nov. 26, with one episode airing each night at 8 p.m. ET. It will also stream on the CW app and cwtv.com for 30 days following its premiere on the channel.
Gilmore Girls is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The series debuted on The WB, the predecessor to The CW, in 2000 and completed its seven-season run on The CW in 2007. This broadcast of A Year in the Life will bring things full circle.
A Year in the Life follows the eponymous Gilmore Girls Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) 10 years after the end of the original series. Lorelai deals with unresolved issues in her life with Luke Danes (Scott Patterson) while Rory confronts problems in her dream career as a journalist.
Other beloved characters from the original series are featured, including Lorelai's mother Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop), Rory's best friend Lane Kim (Keiko Agena), Lane's husband Zack (Todd Lowe), and Rory's competitive frenemy Paris Geller (Liza Weil). Rory also revisits her three major relationships from the original series when she crosses paths with Logan Huntzberger (Matt Czuchry), Jess Mariano (Milo Ventimiglia), and Dean Forester (Jared Padalecki).
You can revisit each episode of A Year in the Life when it broadcasts on The CW on Nov. 23, 24, 25, and 26 at 8 p.m. ET.
