Netflix has released the first trailer for their Gilmore Girls revival, and has announced the launch date for the new series.
Watch the trailer here below, which contains the first footage from the show, which sees the return of Lauren Graham as Lorelai Gilmore and Alexis Bledel as her daughter Rory Gilmore.
Titled Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, the revival is set to launch globally on the streaming service on November 25, 2016 at 12:01am PT, and consist of four 90-minute episodes, with each installment meant to be a new season.
The original television series ran seven seasons on The WB/The CW from 2000 to 2007.
Returning along with Graham and Bledel is Melissa McCarthy, who played Lorelai’s best friend Sookie St. James. The actress has since gone on to mega-stardom with her own hit CBS TV series Mike and Molly, as well as headlining action-comedy films, such as this year’s Ghostbusters.
All of the main cast and many reoccurring stars will be returning, including Jared Padalecki (Supernatural), Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes), Sean Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy), and Kelly Bishop, who played Lorelai’s mother. Edward Herrmann, who played Lorelai’s father, passed way in 2014.
