Netflix Confirms 'Gilmore Girls' Revival Starring Lauren Graham & Alexis Bledel

Get ready to head back to Stars Hollow, "Gilmore Girls" fans!

After much speculation, Netflix has confirmed its plans to revive the beloved family dramedy.

The streaming network announced the news via Twitter on Friday, also revealing the return of original stars Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Scott Patterson and Kelly Bishop, as well as series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino. 

"OY with the poodles already," Netflix's post read, quoting a now-famous line which Graham's character, fast-talking single mom Lorelai Gilmore, first used in the series' second season.

While a premiere date and official title have yet to be released, Variety reports that the "Gilmore Girls" update will avoid an episodic format in favor of presenting four 90-minute installments. 

Graham shared her excitement about returning to the "Gilmore Girls" set, and seems to have been long prepared to play Lorelai once again. 

"It's time for me, and this jacket I stole in 2007, to return to work," she Tweeted, captioning a photo of herself holding a coat with "Property of 'Gilmore Girls'" stitched on the back.

"Gilmore Girls" first premiered on The WB back in 2000, and ran for seven seasons.
