DUDES. I can’t confirm this. But I also can’t deny this… https://t.co/KO8gA7j6Us

“I can’t confirm this. But I also can’t deny this.” Lauren Graham’s tweet hints that the rumor may be true! Close to the 15-year anniversary of the pilot, the word on the street is that Gilmore Girls may be resurrected on Netflix.
I know, I know…but before everyone is all “that’s not a supernatural show” or “I clearly missed Rory Gilmore being a vampire,” stick with me because, well, it’s GILMORE GIRLS. Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, Lauren Graham (Lorelai), Alexis Bledel (Rory), Kelly Bishop (Lorelai’s mom, Emily Gilmore) and Scott Paterson (Luke) are likely to return.
You know what this calls for …
One thing we know for sure is that there would have to be a time hop. The series ended in 2007, meaning we’ll probably be seeing our favorites almost 10 years down the line. Not that the gorgeous Alexis Bledel couldn’t still pass for 21 at 34, but I don’t see it going that way. So, what did the future have in store for this incredibly fast-talking mother/daughter duo? Are Lorelai and Luke still living happily ever after? Is Rory living out her dream as the next Christiane Amanpour?
Speaking of Miss Rory, who is she spending time with these days? Hopefully Paris is still there to keep her in line.
But what about the men in her life? Oh, and I’d like to remind you that before our Sam was Sam…he was Dean. While most of us know and love Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester, he first was Dean Forester on Gilmore Girls. Mind. Blown. Personally, I’m pulling for a reunion with Milo Ventimiglia’s Jess, but who knows who else Rory has met along the way. And Logan? Well … I just never got that guy. He looks like he spends more time on his hair than I do.
I’m guessing Melissa McCarthy is too busy staring on the big screen but I would LOVE if Sookie St. James could make it back for a cameo. But if not, I’ll settle for everyone’s favorite cranky French concierge, Michel Gerard.
Gah! I hope this rumor is true. And who knows … maybe Lorelai will come back with some sort of superpower besides coffee consumption.
