Is anyone else starting to feel like November 25 will never ever, ever, ever get here?
Waiting on “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” is an exercise in control, but Liza Weil is certain the wait will all be worth it once fans finally get to watch the Netflix revival.
“I think fans are going to be really, really happy with what they’ve built,” Weil says. “It’s a really lovely continuation to all the people in that world, and I’m very much looking forward to seeing it soon.”
Weil’s character, Paris, was a fixture in the show from the very start, first as a rival for Rory (Alexis Bledel) and then as a best friend. We’re glad to know the friendship has survived the eight year gap between the end of “Gilmore Girls” and “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” and it seems that’s not the only relationship that stood the test of time.
Paris’ college boyfriend, Doyle (Dany Strong), will also make an appearance in the revival, and if those two aren’t killing it as a doctor/lawyer/news director power couple, we honestly don’t know what we’ll do about it.
While Weil will only appear in one episode of the revival, she says she’s more than happy with how the revival handled her character.
“I can say that I was over the moon with what Amy and Dan have conceived for Paris,” Weil says. “It’s so much fun, and I got to do so much stuff that I’ve missed so much. I had forgotten how much I missed her.”
We miss Paris and her overbearing, slightly neurotic ways too! Like Liza Weil, we’re eagerly awaiting these four new episodes to find out who and what Paris has become.
“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” premieres November 25th at 3 a.m. ET/12 a.m. PT on Netflix
