‘Gilmore Girls’ reunion featurette hits Netflix in time for 16th anniversary

‘So it’s a show?’ ‘It’s a lifestyle.’

The only thing more adorable than the Stars Hollow’s fall festival is how much the cast of Gilmore Girls just loves one another.

In a reunion featurette for Netflix, Lauren Graham (Lorelei), Alexis Bledel (Rory), Scott Patterson (Luke), and the gang spoke briefly about what their favorite parts of the original series were and how excited they are for the return to Gilmore life in the Netflix reboot Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Many cite the show’s breakneck pace; the show’s scripts were famously almost twice as long as other shows of similar length. Others seem saddened by the loss of Gilmore patriarch Edward Herrmann, who played Richard throughout the show’s original run but passed away in 2014. Watch the full clip below.

The featurette’s release is timed to the 16th anniversary of the Gilmore Girls pilot as well as a promotion that transformed coffee shops around the country into Luke’s Diner pop-ups, complete with the logo, the plaid, and the grouchiness about phones.

All seven seasons are streaming on Netflix in advance of A Year in the Life’s Nov. 25 premiere.
