9 Things We Hope to See in the ‘Gilmore Girls’ Revival

The Gilmore Girls is coming back, thanks to the almighty Netflix, who brings dead shows back to life like a mad scientist (not that we’re complaining about this latest Frankenstein). The project will apparently be four 90-minute movies rather than the typical hour-long episode.

Gilmore Girls went off the air in 2007 with Luke and Lorelei reuniting and Rory going off to work on the Obama campaign (yes, really).

There are so many expectations with this series. Here are 9 things we’re hoping to see.


1. Luke and Lorelei have twins.

In Episode 1 of Season 3 titled “Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days,” Lorelei has a dream that she and Luke are having twins. Let’s see that dream come into fruition! Imagine the hijinks of Luke, Lorelei, and Sid and Nancy (or Leopold and Loeb).


2. Jess. Mariano.

Maybe he’s written another book, only this one is about life in Stars Hollow. He has to do a book tour. Anything. Give him anything to do! *Sigh*


3. Taylor comes out of the closet.

Finally! Gay marriage is legalized and Taylor finally finds a mate and puts all of his energy into planning the perfect nuptials at the Firefly Inn.


4. An explanation for the lack of beloved Edward Herrmann.

The Gilmore patriarch passed away in real life in December 2014.


5. An inside joke about Sookie’s career blowing up.

If anyone from Gilmore Girls has become hugely popular following the finale, then it’s Melissa McCarthy who played chef Sookie St. James, Lorelei’s best friend. Since GG, she’s become more than a just supporting player and even earned an Oscar nomination for Bridesmaids.


6. No April.

Nuff said.


Plus, Vanessa Marano (who played April) has other things to do now anyway. Like ABC Family/Freeform’s Switched at Birth.  

7. Kirk becomes mayor of Stars Hollow.

You know he’s never gonna leave.


8. Rory doing a walk-and-talk in the White House like an Aaron Sorkin character.

She’s working for Obama, but maybe she’s unsure of what her plans are post-oval office. Maybe… she has to head back home.


9. Lane becomes a YouTube star as a Mommy Rocker with hubby Zach.

Give the girl the fame and fortune she deserved! And something beyond that series ending (Zach got to go off on tour while she stayed behind with twin babies).
