Gilmore Girls Revival Is A Wrinkly Quilt Of Quick-Talking Nostalgia — With An Ending Fans Always Deserved! Read The Review Roundup!

| Filed under: TV NewsMelissa McCarthyNostalgiaNetflix

no title

It's been almost a full decade since Lorelai and Rory Gilmore executed their signature rapid-fire repartee while discussing love, life and happiness — and thankfully, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life fills that void in all its small-town glory.

At least, that's what most of the critics had to say in the first round of reviews for the highly-anticipated Netflix revival series!

Fans of the original WB dramedy have to wait until November 25 to see Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel return to Stars Hollow, but the lucky reviewers who got a first look at the four-part miniseries say it's well worth the wait!

While most critics agree the cast seamlessly fit back into their hyper-caffeinated characters, there was also a consensus that the 90-minute episodes felt a bit drawn out and muddled down by extensive cameos.

Like most TV reboots, Gilmore Girls also felt a little stuck in the past — and while the pop-culture references were updated to include Kardashians and man-buns, viewers felt some storylines were forced, sacrificing character development for fan-service.

But on the whole, critics seemed to agree: the Girls are back in town, and fans will NOT be disappointed!

gilmore girls netflix revival

We are SO ready for the Gilmore Girls reboot on Netflix!

As many of you are already aware, that's mostly because the entire cast — except for the late Edward Herrmann — has returned to be in the revival. Yup, even Melissa McCarthy.

It was a little up in the air on whether or not the Oscar nominee was going to be able to return to her role as chef Sookie St. James at first… but thankfully, back in April, the 46-year-old confirmed to Ellen DeGeneres that she would indeed be playing Lorelai Gilmore's bestie once more. Phew!

'Tis the season(s)!

We're exactly one month away from getting to binge-watch all four episodes of Netflix's Gilmore Girls reboot — so to celebrate, the streaming service just shared the first official trailer!

That's because in addition to finally revealing some plot — rest in peace, Richard/Edward Herrmann — we're happy to say Kelly Bishop's role looks much larger than we originally realized!

Plus, with appearances from Melissa McCarthy, Milo Ventimiglia, Liza Weil, and Jared Padelecki's iconic characters, Rory won't even have time to mourn her grandfather's passing for long.

Although, we're not so sure how we feel about this Luke & Lorelai update…

Ch-ch-check out a sneak peek of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life ahead of its premiere Friday, November 25 at 3 a.m. EST only on Netflix (below)!!!

Her story may have been short lived on Stranger Things, but Shannon Purser is moving onto better things in her acting career!

The breakout teen — who made her acting debut playing fan favorite Barb on Netflix's Summer hit — has landed a new movie role after a recent trip to Los Angeles!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 19-year-old traveled to El Lay for a week to meet with top casting directors from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, and Sony — and is already finding herself knee-deep in so many roles that they almost bring #JusticeForBarb.

Finally, some quality roles for women in film!

Ellen DeGeneres is totally embracing the slew of female reboots that are quickly taking over Hollywood, so it's no surprise she wanted to produce one of her own.

Following in the steps of Melissa McCarthy's Ghostbusters and Sandra Bullock's upcoming Ocean's Eight, the daytime host decided to give another male-driven blockbuster a feminist remake — Magic Mike!

Photos: All-Female Movie Reboots We'd Love To See!

In anticipation for The Ellen DeGeneres Show's Season 14 premiere next week, which will feature Channing Tatum as the guest, the comedienne shared exclusive footage of her very own spinoff Magic Michelle!

Ellen obviously takes on the TITular role, starring alongside Jenna Dewan Tatum as Peppermint, Olivia Munn as Honeydew, and Chrissy Teigen as Linda Peterson. But it's definitely Oprah Winfrey's enthusiastic stripping that steals the show…
