I can’t believe the Yale Daily News didn’t break this.
Sources confirm to me exclusively that Danny Strong has closed a deal to reprise his role as Paris’ longtime love Doyle in Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival. His casting would seem to suggest that Paris (Liza Weil, who’s also confirmed to return) and Doyle are still together when the action picks up nearly a decade later.
Strong currently serves as an executive producer on Fox’s Empire.
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.
