After months of news, more news and lots of updates about whether or not Melissa McCarthy would reprise the role of Sookie, the first photos from the Gilmore Girls revival on Netflix have finally arrived. While explicit plot details were provided with the release on Monday, more die-hard fans of the original series will notice a few nuggets about how the lives of the Stars Hollow residents have changed in nine years — or not.
Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) Gilmore take center stage, as the witty mother-daughter team feature in four of the photos provided by Netflix. Not only is the pair still staying in, eating Chinese takeout, and roaming around the busy town square, but they’ve also moved on with their lives.
For example, Rory has returned home from college to become an English teacher.
