We're not the only ones who'll be ugly-crying through the entire Gilmore Girls revival on Netflix when it's released in just. four. days.
Lorelai Lauren Graham gave her stamp of approval (which is all the endorsement we need, tbh) and yes, the whole thing made her emotional AF.
According to Vanity Fair, revisiting Stars Hollow nearly a decade after the series finale in 2007 was quite the journey for Graham.
“The biggest difference is all these people are grown-up. There’s still a lot of jokes and light moments, but this time, it has a greater depth,” Graham said of the revival. “There’s death and sadness and more love and emotion. I cried the whole way through the entire script. I thought it was just beautiful and fitting and what I wanted it to be and hoped for.”
Although it will be a reunion for many, the loss of an essential character will be apparent during the four 90-minute episodes. We're still distraught that the Gilmore patriarch won't be gracing our screens this time around; actor Edward Herrmann died from brain cancer in 2014, and a fitting tribute will be made to honor him during the first installment.
But the characters aren’t the only ones returning to Stars Hollow: the fans are, too. In that spirit, leaving us with closure was a significant consideration. Life can often get complicated and unpredictable and the show reflects this inevitable factor.
“There is some closure, but life goes on,” Palladino explained. “So there’s no neat wrap up in anything that we ever write whether it’s Gilmore Girls or any other project because life is ... Messy.” Ain't that the truth.
