Gilmore Girls Revival has stirred up quite a storm. It has gotten fans excited about everything from how the show will pick up from its last season, which characters will be back, how the characters changed over time, and what not. The revival has generated a sea of rumors across the internet, but here are some important nuggets that you need to know if you are a Gilmore Girls loyal.
Amy Sherman-Palladino is back
Gilmore Girls ran for seven seasons, but due to creative differences, Amy Sherman-Palladino left the show before the final season was aired. This prevented the original show creator from wrapping up the season like she intended. However, with the Gilmore Girls Revival, that is all set to change as Amy Sherman-Palladino will be back. Also, there are those final four words that Palladino wanted the show to end with. The fans never found out about those four final words, once Palladino exited the show back in 2007. However, with the revival in the pipeline, the fans can finally enjoy a fitting end they deserved.
Melissa McCarthy is Coming Back
Sookie was one of the most adored characters on the Gilmore Girls. However, when the revival was announced, Melissa McCarthy’s name was nowhere to be seen. Later, the actress took to social media to wish luck to the show, and revealed that she was never contacted for the revival. At the time, it sounded like an official confirmation that Sookie will not be part of the final season of the show. Palladino had repeatedly said that she would love to have Melissa reprise her role. She even said that could write a scene exclusively for her, if McCarthy can allocate even two hours for them. This actually worked. As per the latest news from the sets of the Gilmore Girls Revival, Melissa McCarthy is going to be a part of the show.
It is all about the seasons at Stars Hollow
The latest season of Gilmore Girls is structured differently from the earlier seven. This season has only four episodes that will be aired across the year and each will be 90-minutes long. The episodes will be named after the four seasons. It is also said that the revival show will be named “Gilmore Girls: Seasons”.
The last season will not be sidetracked
Since Palladino was not a part of the last season of Gilmore Girls, it was rumored that she may completely ignore the story that transpired in her absence. However, she has put the rumors to rest by categorically stating that whatever the story was, it was an important piece in the Gilmore Girls jigsaw. She will take the last season in her stride and make the storyline a part of the revival series.
Many New Faces will be seen
Though most of the cast of the original Gilmore Girls series will be seen in the show, many new characters will also entertain the fans. There is a Peruvian couple, a sad Nat, a Portuguese nanny, a high-end fashion magazine editor, and many others. Palladino is known for introducing crazy characters in her shows, and they do work. It is yet unknown how she will marry these characters to the story, but it will indeed be interesting to see.
