Gilmore Girls Revival

Gilmore Girls: New Revival Photos Feature Jess, Friday Night Dinner

Netflix dropped another fresh batch of Gilmore Girls photo assets on Tuesday, one of which offers a first look at the return of the series’ signature Friday Night Dinner.

The streamer is also treating fans to their first official glimpse of Milo Ventimiglia’s Jess (deep in discussion with his Uncle Luke — played by Scott Patterson — inside the latter’s eponymous diner) as well as some new single shots of Lauren Graham’s Lorelai and Alexis Bledel’s Rory.

But it’s the Friday Night Dinner image that packs the biggest emotional punch given the absence of patriarch Richard (played by the late Edward Hermann). Over the summer, Graham said the death of Richard gives the four-episode revival (out Nov. 25) “a depth and emotional complexity that felt like, ‘Here’s the show, [only] more grown-up” and that plays into “all the choices the characters” make.

That’s particular true of Kelly Bishop‘s newly-widowed Emily, who is forced to explore, “What does the death of a husband mean to a woman who had a life very specific to her all of these years?” previews series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino. “And where does she go from here?”

    Luke and the blue hat, Lorelai gifted him. Just watched the ep a couple of days ago. #L0Ve

    I need an Emily-Mrs Kim scene, those two are amazing.

  3. TV Gord says:

    Sally Struthers and Liz Torres are looking good and well! I’m so happy that they got so many of the Stars Hollows denizens back for this greatly anticipated revisit!

    Thank you, Michael. The portrait of Richard in the background of the dinner scene is poignant.

  7. The combination of flag is interesting…

    South Korea is pretty obvious, but why Guam and Bulgaria???

  8. Carrie says:

    Does anyone remember Luke actually sitting at a table in the diner before? Looks odd to me ..
