OY with the poodles, already! See you on set, Amy Sherman-Palladino, @thelaurengraham @alexisbledel. #GilmoreGirls pic.twitter.com/kM36J1JVgV— Netflix US (@netflix) January 29, 2016
How the show will be structured remains to be seen -- original rumors said it might come back as four 90-minute "mini movie" episodes, but that hasn't been confirmed yet. It also seems unlikely that Melissa McCarthy will resume her supporting role on the show given how much her star has risen in the years since Gilmore Girls wrapped in 2007.
Regardless, fans can finally see Sherman-Palladino put a wrap on the characters as she sees fit -- she left the show before its final season due to contract disputes. She'll be writing and directing all the episodes along with her husband and creative partner Daniel Palladino, who was also heavily involved with the first Gilmore Girls run. Filming should begin next week.
Lead Gimore Girl Lauren Graham has also confirmed the reunion with this adorable tweet:
