The highly anticipated Gilmore Girls revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, finally has a premiere date, and Netflix has just dropped the first ever trailer for the four-part event!
On Wednesday, July 27, Netflix announced that the revival will premiere globally on Thanksgiving weekend, on November 25, 2016, at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time. It is not yet known whether or not Netflix will release all four episodes at the same time as they typically do or if they will be spread out. According to a previous interview with TVLine, Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino said she would like to have each episode released at least a day apart.

While fans still have several months before they can catch up with Rory (Alexis Bledel) and Lorelai (Lauren Graham), Netflix is releasing a Gilmore Girls teaser trailer to tide them over until then. The clip, which clocks in at just under a minute and 30 seconds, starts out by showing images of the familiar places in Stars Hollow, including the famous Luke’s Diner and Lorelai’s Dragonfly Inn. The words “Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall” then appear on the screen, followed by “Seasons may change, but some things never will.”
The trailer then shows Rory and Lorelai sitting at their kitchen table drinking coffee in the typical Gilmore fashion.
Lorelai then asks her daughter, “Do you think Amy Schumer would like me?”
Rory says no, and after a bout of arguing, she explains why.
“Water sports. Every single time I see her in a magazine she’s on vacation doing water sports.”
Lorelai then adds, “No. That would not work at all.”

Following the release of the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life trailer, Amy Schumer took to Twitter to joke about the “water sports” reference.
“I’ve only done 2 water sports and they took pictures of it both times. I promise I usually just lay there (sex too),” she added in a separate tweet.

Earlier this month, Graham opened up about returning to the series after nearly 10 years, admitting that it has officially ruined her.
“I relished it, and I’m ruined for life because there’s no more perfect fit I feel like for me than that writing and that show,” she told People Magazine. “I’m so glad I got to do it again. I just can’t even explain it. It was everything I wanted it to be and more.”
She also opened up about her on-screen daughter Alexis Bledel, who is now a mom in real life.

“Just like the show, our dynamic has always been more like friends than mother and daughter,” she said. “We are closer in age than, like, the kids who played my kids on Parenthood! I have so much respect for her as an actor and a person and a mom. And similar to the old show, we didn’t see a lot of baby around because we had long scenes to do. So I was just proud of how she kind of has handled her personal life. She’s very private. We were both kind of in different places then, and we’re both more settled down now. So that was kind of cool, to reconnect.”
