Cue squeals of excitement
We’re one step closer to Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life (cue inner squeals of excitement).
Netflix is debuting the official art of the highly anticipated reboot and showcasing each of the four seasons its episodes will chronicle.
Because Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) loves anything having to do with snow, it only seemed right that creator Amy Sherman-Palladino decided to kick off the four episodes of Gilmore Girls with winter.
“Maybe because the holidays …,” star Alexis Bledel, 35, previously told PEOPLE of the decision to debut during the winter. “The holidays are a good time to pick up with this family story because families usually come together around that time.”
Graham thinks it may have to do with songstress King.
“I always assumed that it was ‘You’ve Got a Friend:’ Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall,’ ” says Graham, 49. “And I always assumed they were going to ask her to use that song. I don’t know if that’s true. That’s just what I figured, given that she did our theme song and is a part of the show.”
“Our old title sequence is on film, and we’re in a digital world now,” adds Graham. “Do you use that same title sequence from 15 years ago? Do you use part of it? Do you put music at the end? When do you do the credits? It can’t be the same. To me, part of the nostalgia of the show is that opening, so … I don’t know what they’re going to do.”
The beloved show also features Scott Patterson, Milo Ventimiglia, Jared Padalecki, Scott Czuchry, Sutton Foster and Carole King (who performed the original series’ theme song, “Where You Lead”) as Sophia Bloom, to name a few.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premieres Nov. 25 on Netflix.
