Gilmore Girls Revival Video: Lauren, Alexis, Scott, Jared, Milo & Co. Herald 'Unimaginable' Return to Stars Hollow

It’s not a trailer, but it’s the next next best thing.

To commemorate the 16th anniversary of Gilmore Girls‘ premiere on The WB, Netflix is treating fans to a swoonworthy trip down memory lane while also (and here’s where things get exciting) offering a tangential sneak peek of next month’s revival.

You see, while the above video package doesn’t actually contain any footage from the four-part continuation, titled Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, it does boast fresh interviews with the key players — including Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, Scott Patterson, Jared Padalecki, Milo Ventimiglia and Matt Czuchry — that were conducted while they were on set and, presumably, dressed in character. (Hey, it’s something!)

The streamer is also marking today’s “Gilmoreversary” by converting hundreds of coffee shops around the country into mini Luke’s Diners, with free java to boot (a full list of participating locations can be found here.)

Press PLAY above and bask in the nostalgia, then head out to grab your gratis coffee at Luke’s, and then, to be sure, make sure your iPhone alarm is set for 12:01 am PT on Friday, Nov. 25.
