Yesterday we announced Netflix has confirmed that a Gilmore Girls Revival is a definite go. The streaming service has decided to bring back the television show eight years after it has gone off the air.
The show, which is yet to be officially named, will include most of the main cast — which includes Scott Patterson, better known by fans as Luke Danes.
No word on how many episodes he will appear in, but right now fans can expect at least four-90 minute episodes each taking place in current day. So, we are going to experience an 8-year jump to see what has become of our beloved characters.
Patterson’s publicist released a statement today from Scott on his feelings about the reunion.
“I am thrilled Warner Bros and Netflix have gathered us all once more for a return to Stars Hollow. We have an unbelievably talented cast, and with Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino’s rich writing and character development, the story continues its timeless arc. I’m excited to see where the characters are now, and find out where and how they develop. I am happy to be back working with my friends and cast-mates, but even more thrilled for the fans. All of this is because of them, and without our fans, none of this would have been possible. Luke’s Diner is now open for business!”
No word yet on when the new episodes will be available, but the cast has already visited the set and had their first table read. Filming for the new episodes begins next month.
