Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls” revival is fast approaching, and the newest batch of photos reveal a few hints about what’s to come in the wonky lives of Lorelai (Lauren Graham), Rory (Alexis Bledel) and Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop).
Most of the photos are innocent stills of familiar faces like Michel (Yanic Truesdale), Taylor Doose (Michael Winters) and Mrs. Kim (Emily Kuroda), but others are revealing enough that we’ve got to speculate.
First up, let’s all breathe a sigh of relief that Paris (Liza Weil) and Rory are heading back to Chilton for some good old-fashioned nostalgia. When we saw the first stills of Rory speaking in front of a class of Chilton students, fans feared it meant she had become a high school teacher in the years since “Gilmore Girls” went off the air — rather than an accomplished journalist.
Now that we know Rory has been living and working in London, this trip to Chilton with her old friend Paris is probably a quick pit stop on Career Day, or some kind of alumni lecture series.
Next up, we’ve got to speculate about why Lane (Keiko Agena) and Zack (Todd Lowe) are rocking out without the rest of Hep Alien. Both Gil (Sebastian Bach) and Brian (John Cabrera) have been tapped to return for the revival, so does this mean they’re getting the band back together?
Finally … What on earth is Kirk (Sean Gunn) doing with a pig on a leash?
It’s no secret that Stars Hollow is a pretty eclectic town, and having a pig as a pet seems pretty par for the course, but it’s still a bit of an odd picture.
Is this a replacement pet for Cat Kirk? Part of a strange new town event? We must know!
“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” premieres Nov. 25th at 3 a.m. ET/12 a.m. PT on Netflix.
