Gilmore Women? Gilmore Girls is getting a revival, courtesy of Netflix

It seems like every popular television series is being targeted for a revival these days, and now Gilmore Girls is joining that rapidly expanding list of series headed back to the small screen.

A new report indicates that Netflix has finalized a deal with Warner Bros. Television to bring back the award-winning sitcom for a limited series, with stars Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, and Scott Patterson all expected to return for the show’s revival.

According to TVLine, the project is still at an early stage with cast and creative team negotiations, but the revival is being envisioned as a four-part series of 90-minute episodes. Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is expected to pen the revival series with her husband, executive producer Daniel Palladino.

The report indicates that the pair are being given the chance to wrap up Gilmore Girls the way they had originally intended before a contract dispute with the network pushed them out of the series late in its run. Sherman-Palladino and Palladino cut ties with the series before its seventh and final season, and have acknowledged that their intended finale for the show they created was never fully realized.

The winner of a long list of accolades that includes both a Primetime Emmy Award and an American Film Institute Award, Gilmore Girls premiered in 2000 and chronicled the lives, loves, and familial dramas of a mother, Lorelai Gilmore (Graham), and her daughter, Rory (Bledel), in the small Connecticut town of Stars Hollow. The owner and operator of the town’s bed-and-breakfast inn, Lorelai received some help from her best friend and cook, Sookie, played by Melissa McCarthy, and regularly fretted over the stresses imposed by her well-off parents, Richard (Edward Herrmann) and Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop).

Given the tremendous success McCarthy has had in her post-Gilmore Girls career, the Oscar-nominated Bridesmaids actress isn’t expected to reprise her role in the series.

There’s no timetable yet on when the Gilmore Girls revival will begin production.
