LOS ANGELES – “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” will answer fans’ burning questions, star Lauren Graham told reporters at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour.
“I’m sure there will be people who won’t feel satisfied because that’s just people… For me it was really satisfying,” she said. “There wasn’t any question left unanswered.”
Netflix will release the "Gilmore Girls" revival in the form of four 90 minute installments, titled “Winter,” “Spring,” “Summer” and “Fall.”
All four installments will be available for streaming on the same day, something creator Amy Sherman-Palladino had previously told the press she was against.
"I told them I was going to hang myself from a shower curtain if they put them all out," Sherman-Palladino said jokingly. "They said, 'Can we help you with that?’"
She explained that her main concern was that viewers would skip to the end of the revival to see the much-buzzed about final four words of the show.
"It's such a journey and it's such a build to the last four words," she said. "However, you don’t always get what you want.”
The show’s creator also said she was nervous fans would spoil the show for other fans.
“…But the good outweighs the bad in the sense that it is a wonderful place to be able to create things and do things in a different way. So, shower curtain will wait."
Graham said the revival was a long time in the making.
“It was never up to me to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ or discussions about making a film— we weren’t sure what that would look— it just sort of evolved into what it became which was a convergence of the way the world has changed and the right way to do this material,” she said. “We started having conversations in earnest I would say like two years ago, and then it was slowly happening, maybe a year ago…everything just fell into place.”
The actress said she had to gather herself when she first started filming the revival.
“I was very kind of emotional and excited. I was a mess. I was too emotional. I had to pull it together to say my long lines.”
And Alexis Bledel revealed that all of her character’s ex-boyfriends will make appearances during the reboot.
“Gilmore Girls” stars Melissa McCarthy, Kelly Bishop, Sean Gunn and Keiko Agena have also returned for the revival.
“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” premieres November 25th on Netflix.
