New 'Gilmore Girls' episodes set to air on Netflix
The new Gilmore Girls trailer has landed, with Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life episodes set to air on Netflix on November 25 at 7am GMT.
Gilmore Girls ran for seven seasons from 2000 – 2007 and starred Lauren Graham as Lorelai Gilmore and Alexis Bledel as her daughter Rory Gilmore.
Other original cast members Melissa McCarthy, Scott Paterson, Kelly Bishop, Sean Gunn and Keiko Agena have all been confirmed to return for the new episodes. You can watch the new trailer below.
Netflix announced the Gilmore Girls reboot earlier this year in July. Four 90 minute episodes will be shown, centering around Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter and depicting a year in the life of the mother and daughter.
Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, she returns to executive produce, write and direct Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life along with Daniel Palladino.
Edward Herrmann, who played Lorelai’s father Richard Gilmore, passed away in 2014. The new trailer sees the actor honoured with a huge oil painting in the family home.
“It’s safe to say that the death of Richard Gilmore, the death of Ed Herrmann, looms large over everything,” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino told Entertainment Weekly ahead of the airing of the new episodes. “Dealing with the death of Richard is going to impact all of them, because when somebody close to you dies your whole life comes into a weird focus for a minute. Like, what direction am I walking [in]?”
Scott Paterson also told the magazine: “[Herrmann’s death] left a big void, but Amy honoured it beautifully. He’s throughout… these stories. It’s a wonderful homage to him as a person and to his character as well. It’s nice to have him around.”
