Every Thanksgiving, I watch "A Deep-Fried Korean Thanksgiving," my fourth favorite Gilmore Girls episode of all time, and give thanks that such a clever, feel-good, autumn-tinted dream of a show exists. This year, the tradition will be a little different because Netflix just announced that it will drop all four 90-minute episodes of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on November 25, 2016, the day after Thanksgiving.
But that bit of news isn't all that Netflix has in store for us today. They also unveiled the very first look at the new revival series. And it's as though no time has passed since the show went off the air in 2007. As always, Lorelai and Rory sit in the kitchen we know so well, surrounded by mountains of Pop Tarts, discussing pop culture.
This time, three main quandaries are up for discussion:
- Would Amy Schumer like Lorelai?
- Would John Oliver find Lorelai hot?
- Is there such a thing as a plant that only blooms every decade and smells like dead fish?
Find out the answers to these questions in the first Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life trailer:
