Netflix officially confirmed the highly anticipated “Gilmore Girls” comeback, planning a new miniseries to take us back to the quirky, close-knit community of Stars Hollow.
Actresses Alexis Bledel (L) and Lauren Graham from the series “Gilmore Girls” attend the 2006 Summer Television Critics Association Press Tour for the The CW Network at the Ritz-Carlton Huntington Hotel on July 17, 2006 in Pasadena, California.
The revival will also introduce new characters, reports NY Daily News, including a handyman named Alejandro and his wife Berta, as well as love interest Paul and a magazine editor called Jim. Lane and Zack’s 9-year-old Korean-American twins Stevie and Kwan will also appear, giving us a time frame for how much time has passed since the season finale in 2007 (the twins were infants at the time). Only Melissa McCarthy, who played chef Sookie and has since become a huge movie star, has not been announced as returning (she hasn’t been announced as not returning either).
