Pop open the Salad Water — Mrs. Kim is returning!
Beloved Gilmore Girls scene-stealer Emily Kuroda is reprising her role as Lane’s (Keiko Agena) scary-strict, antiques-dealing mother in Netflix’s forthcoming revival, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Kuroda joins a looooong list of Gilmore vets returning for the four-episode continuation (click on the gallery below for the most up-to-date cast list).
Series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and exec producer Daniel Palladino (AKA Team Palladino) are writing and directing the entire revival, which will consist of four 90-minute episodes/mini-movies. As TVLine exclusively revealed, each chapter will represent a different season over the course of one calendar year (as such, the episodes will be titled “Winter,” Spring,” Summer” and “Fall”). The revival will be set in the present day, or roughly eight years after the series ended.
Production on the tentatively-titled Gilmore Girls: Seasons is currently underway in Los Angeles.
