Everyone’s favorite hometown, Stars Hallow, will soon become home again!

It was recently announced that “Gilmore Girls” would be coming back with their very own mini Netflix series. The series will comprise of four 90-minute episodes, which will all be named after seasons: fall, winter, spring and summer. The last time we saw Stars Hallow, Rory had graduated from Yale and was going off to be a journalist for the Barack Obama presidential campaign.

Despite having taken a break from producing season seven, Amy Sherman Palladino will be back to produce the Netflix series. Along with Palladino, Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham will be back to reprise their roles as Rory and Lorelei Gilmore. Logan, Dean and Jess will all be back to continue their roles but how will that play out? The “Gilmore Girls” community is buzzing with all sorts of different theories as to how that will work. Rory’s best friend, Lane, along with Miss. Patty, Kirk, Luke, Michel, Paris, Christopher and many more of your favorites will all be back.

One noticeable member that will be missing is the beloved,Richard Gilmore. Edward Herrmann passed away in December of 2014 after losing his battle with cancer. This of course will be a huge part of the plot. How has Emily been coping with the loss and living on her own? Did Rory get to say goodbye to her hero? There are so many questions that people are waiting to be answered.

The one big mystery is the reappearance of Lorelei’s best friend, Sookie St. James. As of now, it doesn’t seem likely that Sookie will be returning to Stars Hallow. According to Melissa McCarthy, she said she was not asked to come back. Sherman-Palladino said that she would write Melissa into the script if she’s around and would like to partake in the revival.

Is Rory single? Has she become a successful journalist? Did Jess publish any more books? Are Lorelei and Luke still together?  These are just a few of the thousands of questions the Gilmore Girls fandom have for the new series. While there is no release date yet, the premiere will be anxiously awaited by many.
