UP TV is getting Gilmore Girls fans ready for the highly anticipated revival by running a marathon of all seven seasons.
According to a news release provided to the Inquisitr by UP TV, the network announced on August 3 that they would be airing Seasons 1 through 7 24 hours a day for 153 hours straight during Thanksgiving week in a marathon they are calling “GILMORE THE MERRIER ON UP.” Season 1 will kick off on Nov. 18, Friday, at 6 p.m. ET and the marathon will end with Season 7 on Nov. 25, Friday, at 3 a.m. ET, the same day Netflix will premiere the revival Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
“Just in time for the holidays, UP viewers will be able to spend time with another family they truly love,” Amy Winter, EVP and general manager of UP, said in the release. “We wanted to gift our audience with the ultimate catch-up event with added extras like trivia and contests. Our viewers are massive fans of Gilmore Girls, so we’re going all Gilmore all the time or an entire week.”

The charming, family-favorite series that ran from 2000 to 2007 starred Lauren Graham as Lorelai Gilmore, Alexis Bledel as Rory Gilmore, Melissa McCarthy as Sooki, Keiko Agena as Lane, Yanic Truesdale as Michelle, Scott Patterson as Luke, Liza Weil as Paris, Jared Padalecki as Dean, Milo Ventimiglia as Jess, Sean Gunn as Kirk, Kelly Bishop as Emily Gilmore, the late Edward Herrmann as Richard Gilmore, and Matt Czuchry as Logan.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Netflix announced on Wednesday, July 27, that the four-part revival will premiere globally on Thanksgiving weekend, on November 25, 2016, at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time. Although fans will have to wait a few more months to catch up with the Gilmore Girls, Netflix has released a 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.”

While fans are waiting for the marathon, and revival, they are coming up with some ideas as to what has been going on with the mother/daughter duo since we last saw them. The latest conspiracy is that Lorelai is pregnant with Luke’s baby. The idea comes from an Instagram post, shared by the show’s official account, that showed a single apple on a bed of Pop-Tarts. The importance? If you will recall, in Season 5, Lorelai has a pregnancy scare and revealed that she craved apples when she was pregnant with her daughter Rory. Is the show trying to tell us something? Maybe, but it appears as though fans will just have to wait until Thanksgiving weekend to find out for certain.
