After months of not-so-patiently waiting for an official release date for Netflix’s upcoming Gilmore Girls revival, the streaming service has finally revealed the big day: November 25. But that’s not all: We also have our first official teaser for the series, subtitled A Year in the Life, and it’s every bit as wonderful as fans could have imagined.
The clip (released on Netflix’s international social media accounts a bit early on Wednesday) opens on our return to Stars Hollow, highlighting familiar landmarks like the town gazebo and Luke’s Diner, all to the strains of the show’s signature la-la soundtrack. The camera eventually settles on Lorelai’s (Lauren Graham) house, where she and Rory (Alexis Bledel) are sitting at the kitchen table, having the kind of conversation that could have been plucked out of any previous episode of Gilmore, only updated with some more timely pop culture references. The banter begins with Lorelai wondering aloud, “Do you think Amy Schumer would like me?”
The resulting debate quickly devolves into a discussion of the corpse flower and Rory repeating the term “watersports” (excuse us for giggling over its other, inappropriate definition), and despite the presence of a smartphone (which Rory uses to read up on the rotting flesh-scented flower — the advent of Google at your fingertips would have made some of this pair’s earlier pop cultural arguments a moot point) it’s like we’d never left our favorite motormouth mother and daughter.
From what we’ve seen so far of the series, we know that Luke and Lorelai are still together (though they’re not married), Stars Hollow is as wacky as ever (a town meeting is scheduled, as is a musical about the town’s history), and Melissa McCarthy’s Sookie will be doing… something. And it looks like Lorelai may be keeping her promise of returning to us when Hillary Clinton becomes president. November is going to be a great month.
