Gilmore Girls Revival Lauren Graham Favorite

Lauren Graham: Gilmore Girls Revival Is the 'Most Favorite Thing I've Ever Done'

Even though Gilmore Girls‘ warp-speed dialogue may sound exhausting to deliver, Lauren Graham says she’d happily spout off as Lorelai any time, any place — which is why Netflix’s upcoming revival, A Year in the Life, was a dream to make.

“It’s not even a do-over, it’s just to go back with an understanding of how rare it all was and is,” the actress told E! Online at Thursday’s Emmy nominations announcement. “Plus, I just love that material. I love it. I never get tired of it.”

Graham also called the continuation “my most favorite thing I’ve ever done,” adding, “I was very thankful every day.”

Series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino wrote and directed all of the revival’s four 90-minute episodes/mini-movies; production wrapped in May, and the episodes will debut on the streaming video service later this year. 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 boasts an impressive number of original cast members, including Melissa McCarthy as Sookie,  as well as a handful of notable new faces, including Sutton Foster (Bunheads) and Dan Bucatinsky (Scandal).

    You always want to hear that your favorite show was the star’s favorite job so this makes me very happy!

    I recently started rewatching from the beginning on Netflix. There’s so many things I forgot about in the early seasons, especially all the times Emily was afraid the girls would stop coming to dinner. I cannot wait for the new episodes.

  3. Mary says:

    That is great to hear but when is it going to air – the anticipation is like a kid in the candy store.

  4. Elizabeth says:

    One of my favorite shows and look forward to watching the the revival. But not to thrilled about the return of who plays the sookie character. I just have to tolerate it! Ugh!

    When Lauren Graham was being interviewed about her new book, she said it would be out about the same time as the new shows. Amazon has the book available Nov 29, 2016.

  6. Nanciellen Poulos says:

    I love this show & I’m realexcited to relive it & hope Lorelai & Luke marry

  7. Laurie says:

    I can’t wait. Love the fact that Lauren recognizes that playing Lorelai was a very special role for her. It’s going to be emotional ‘visiting’ Stars Hollow again after all these years.
