Gilmore Girls Revival

Gilmore Girls Revival: Mrs. Kim's Back!

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.

  3. jj says:

    Yes!! Incredible news!!

  4. Ellen says:

    Ceasar tweeted he was back too but he’s not on your list

  5. schmooey says:

    what about ms patti and babette?

    • Jennifer says:

      They’re both back – check the pics below. However – APRIL IS BACK. Could have done without that. Really. She could be away at camp or boarding school or in AZ with her mom.

      • Katie T says:

        Except April will basically be an adult now as wouldn’t she be something like 20/21 at least given the 8 year time gap. She’s not going to be an annoying school kid any more

  6. Mia says:

    YES! Love Mrs Kim! Paris and Doyle? Love love extra. Fantastic! I am literally counting the days.

  7. Christy says:

    YES YES YES!! I was making a list of other people who must come back and she one was of the top! People need to be yelled at one more time. YOU BREAK YOU BUY!

  8. Dennis says:

    April is back too, you guys, according to EW


  9. Nick says:

    Did you know they use Lane’s house as Emily’s house on Pretty Little Liars? I feel like Pam Fields and Mrs Kim would get along really well.

  10. Marci says:

    What odds do you put on Melissa McCarthy returning?

  11. JosiahBartlet4President says:

    Amy, get off your bum and go beg Melissa to come back. PLEASE! It won’t be the same without Sookie.

  12. Variety reports that April is returning. This is gonna be horrible…

  13. Tom Beeman says:

    What a testament to this show that after 8 years so many people want to be a part if this. Often times reunions diasppoint because they have to re-cast a main role because the actor wants distance from their original role

  14. sntindall says:

    I just watched Ones got class the other one dyes! Legit like 45 minutes ago. I still don’t want to know what salad water tastes like. This is exciting news! I loved Mrs. Kim’s character development.

  15. Kate says:

    YEEEEEES Zach is on the list…..add Caesar too….I really just want everyone back…what about Babettes husband? I loved him. Every character added sooo much to the show. Esp. important would also be the street musician- he kind of started everything off didn’t he?

  16. Walkie says:

    Is tvline.com being paid for each article they write about the Gilmore Girls reunion? If so, they must be swimming in it.

  17. Nicole says:

    As much as I disliked the whole April storyline, maybe April coming back means that Lorelai and Luke are getting married? I can’t see Luke getting married and not inviting his daughter…

  18. Eileen says:

    They have to bring Melissa McCarthy back! She was an integral part of the show.

  19. Eliane says:

    Looks like it will be everybody but Sookie… I wish MA could clarify the Melissa/ASP misunderstanding regarding the invitation.

  20. sportylady says:

    Who will be playing Gigi and will Sherri be mentioned in the episodes? Gigi would be about 11 now if my math is correct, would love to see how much Rory’s been involved in her life (always felt weird to me that she wasn’t more involved and interested or babysitting at times).

    It wouldn´t be GG without her.
