Gilmore Girls Carolyn Hennesy

TVLine Items: Gilmore Casts a Cougar, Norman Reedus to Ride Again and More

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is getting a little catty.

Cougar Town alumna Carolyn Hennesy will recur in the Netflix revival as Toni, a member of the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution), our sister site Variety reports.

The upper-crust Toni is described as “someone who likes to keep things orderly and does not appreciate dissension.” Sounds like that might not sit well with Emily, who has been in the DAR with Toni for years.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life debuts Friday, Nov. 25 at 3:01/2:01c on the streaming service.

    I thought that the Gilmore Girls movies were done filming.

  2. BEN says:

    Surprised that tvline makes no Mendon of the fact that Carolyn recurs on general hospital as diane. Abd if memory serves she really was only on cougar town for the first season. So why highlight that role when she was on gh prior to cougar town and after cougar town?
