'Gilmore Girls' fans celebrated the show's reboot by visiting Luke's Diner pop-ups



(UPDATE OCT. 5, 6:07 p.m.)

"Gilmore Girls" fans lined up outside of coffee shops nationwide Wednesday to get the full Luke's Diner experience. 

Circa stopped by Flying Fish Coffee and Tea in Washington, D.C., to chat with diehard fans about the show's reboot this November. 

Let's be real, girls everywhere are just counting down the days to Nov. 25. 

Dedicated fan, Jannelle Hugel, said she's been waiting for this for a decade.

"It kind feels like you're meeting an old friend," Hugel said. 

Other fans were just ready to see where Rory and Lorelai Gilmore's love lives have taken them. 

"I want to see Luke and Lorelai together and I want to see Rory having conquered the world," said Tasha Manoranjan. 

Original Story

With November quickly approaching, "Gilmore Girls" fans are counting down the days until reboot next month. 

To celebrate the much-anticipated "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life" premiere, Netflix is sponsoring 250 Luke's Diner pop-up shops nationwide on Oct. 5. 

Oct. 5 is also the 16th anniversary of the show's original premiere. And what better way to celebrate Lorelai and Rory Gilmore than with coffee?

Each of the temporary Luke's Diner pop-ups will include décor from the show and coffee cups covered in "Gilmore Girls" quotes.

If you're lucky, you  might end up running into a coffee shop manager dressed a Luke Danes or stumble upon a sign that says "no cell phones." 

Free 12-ounce cups of coffee will be available for the first 200-250 customers, beginning at 7 a.m. and ending at noon. 

Comoncy cafés marketing manager Amber Jamal told USA Today that customers should look out for messages under their coffee sleeves.

Customers could win a month of free Netflix, according to Jamal.
