Jared Padalecki is the latest of three former Rory flames to sign on for the “Gilmore Girls” relaunch on Netflix, promising some serious drama when the beloved show returns.
According to TVLine, the “Supernatural” star is joining Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham — as well as former love interests for Bledel’s character played by Matt Czuchry and Milo Ventimiglia — for the four-episode continuation of the show.
A teen sweetheart of Rory, Padalecki’s Dean left the show after Season 5 following some heavy drama with Lorelai and Luke. The revival, set to take place eight years after the series concluded, will consist of four 90-minute mini-movies entitled “Winter,” “Spring,” “Summer” and “Fall.”
The busy Padalecki will also continue shooting the 11th season of “Supernatural” as he also dips one toe into his past, via a return trip to Star Hollow.
