Watch a fan’s lovingly-made new ‘Gilmore Girls’ opening credits

They feature clips from 'Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life' set to the show's familiar theme song, 'Where You Lead' by Carole King.

A Gilmore Girls superfan has made some updated opening credits for the show’s Netflix revival series.

The fan-made credits feature clips from the four-part revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life, set to the show’s familiar theme song, ‘Where You Lead’ by Carole King. They are evidently designed to compensate for the surprising lack of new credits in the show’s Netflix episodes.


Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life debuted on Netflix last Friday (November 25). It picks up eight years on from the original series and opens with Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop) dealing with the death of Richard Gilmore, Lorelai’s father. Edward Herrmann, who played the role of Richard, died in 2014.

The revival has been met with mixed reactions, with some viewers taking to social media to claim that Lorelai, Rory (Alexis Bledel) and other characters were “kind of awful sometimes and a little bit selfish”.

Bledel has since responded to the criticism by unexpectedly comparing the show to Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, Lauren Graham has announced she is publishing a book that recounts her experiences of starring in Gilmore Girls.
