WHAT IT’S ABOUT This four-part reboot — each chapter 90 minutes — is divided into winter, spring, summer and fall, and picks up nine years after the series created by Amy Sherman-Palladino ended. Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) is still running the Dragonfly Inn in Stars Hollow, Connecticut, with a cranky assist from Michel Gerard (Yanic Truesdale). One day, daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel) returns home. With one notable exception, core characters have returned, including Lorelai’s mother, Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop), and Luke Danes (Scott Patterson). Also back are Kirk Gleason (Sean Gunn), Paris Geller (Liza Weil), Lane Kim (Keiko Agena), Logan Huntzberger (Matt Czuchry), Jess Mariano (Milo Ventimiglia) and Taylor Doose (Michael Winters). What about Lorelai’s BFF Sookie St. James (Melissa McCarthy)? Sorry, you’ll just have to watch to find out. Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino — her spouse, also writing partner on the first six seasons — wrote and directed all six hours. In a contract dispute with The CW, they quit before the seventh and final season.
