“Gilmore Girls”, a television drama which was taken off air in 2007, leaving many viewers heartbroken and wanting more, has finally been given a well-deserved reboot. “Gilmore Girls”, centered around the family and friendships of mother-daughter duo, Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter, Rory, first aired in 2000 and for the next seven years kept a dedicated fan base. Nine years later, the fans are more ready than ever to kick off the continuation of the storyline.
Lorelai manages the town’s bed and breakfast, the Dragonfly Inn, located in the fictional town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut, with best friend and chef, Sookie St. James. She also grapples with the challenge of weekly dinners with her unconventional, financially successful parents, Richard and Emily Gilmore, who are never shy about any misgivings they may have about the way their daughter lives her life.
Rory attends Yale University after the show follows her through her high school career, but often returns to Stars Hollow to visit Lorelai.
Although the creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino, says the show was supposed to be centered around “a smart, ambitious girl and her family,” fans have debated from the very beginning who Rory is meant to be romantically involved with. Now that there will be more Dean vs. Jess vs. Logan, Rory’s exes, social media debates are sure to continue.
Netflix subscribers will be able to stream the four 90 minute episodes, each focusing on one of the four seasons, “Winter”, “Spring”, “Summer”, and “Fall”, on Friday, November 25.
