Gilmore Girls, television’s most autumnal show, returns on Nov. 25 after a nine-year absence for more fast-talking, coffee-drinking small town shenanigans. So far, Netflix has hyped the four-episode miniseries, known as Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, with crowded pop-ups, teasing Instagram posts, a teaser, and photos — there will also be a fan festival and 153-hour marathon, which ends right before A Year In the Life premieres. (Because nothing says Thanksgiving like arguing over Dean, Jess, Logan, or Marty, who your Aunt Mabel thinks Rory should have ended up with, for some reason.)
Today, the streaming service released several seasonal posters. It’s an appropriate choice — episode one is called “Winter,” episode two is “Spring,” and so on. (The miniseries will be released all at once, because Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos is “petrified of those fans; they are so passionate.”) The posters are charming as hell and all, but there’s something… off.
Once you see it, you can’t unsee it.
Four years at Yale, and Rory never learned how to hold a coffee cup. She really should have gone to Harvard. Anyway, most of the original cast of Gilmore Girls will return for A Year In Life, including the well-paid Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, obviously, as well as Scott Patterson, Kelly Bishop, Melissa McCarthy, and, hopefully, Nick Offerman reprising his role as Beau.
