Netflix, one of the leading on-demand streaming services around the world, has garnered somewhat of a reputation for bringing back television shows that were, according to fans, prematurely cancelled.
The on-demand service has already injected new blood into Full House, via a new spin-off titled Fuller House, and also brought Arrested Development back from the dead. Now, the Los Gatos based giant has turned its attention toward Gilmore Girls, a much loved series owned by Warner Bros..
The rumoured acquisition has been making the rounds online for quite some time, but new evidence of a legitimate revival has cropped up via sources for TV-Line.
The TV focussed site has revealed that a Gilmore Girls revival is indeed going to happen, with actresses Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel set to reprise their roles as the hilariously quickly mother-daughter duo. So far it has been confirmed via sources that the revival will be a mini series, consisting of four 90-minute episodes, although it is unclear if the show will still follow its original format.
Originally running from 2000 to 2007, Gilmore Girls followed the everyday struggles of a mother-daughter duo in the fictional town of Stars Hollow. The show portrayed single parenting and the joys of motherhood as well as the troubled teenage years and struggles of fitting in and finding your own identity.
The Netlflix revival is rumoured to start production as early as next year. Here’s hoping for Mcleod’s Daughters next.
