70 Questions We Have For Netflix's 'Gilmore Girls' Revival

If it happens.

Yesterday, TV Line reported that Netflix had ordered four new 90-minute episodes of beloved mid-aughts sitcom "Gilmore Girls." The original cast, including Alexis Bledel, Lauren Graham and Kelly Bishop, are said to be on board. Furthermore, series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is supposedly writing the script, meaning it'll probably go more like Seasons 1 through 6 and less like the show's (disastrous) final season that aired on the CW in 2007, which she was not involved in.
