Here's everything you need to know before watching 'Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life'


The day we've all been waiting for is almost here! No, not Thanksgiving, although that's fun too. 

As of Friday, Nov. 25, we can all binge watch "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life" on Netflix. 

If you're a true fan, you probably already know the revival is centered around the inseparable, Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, who are played by Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, respectively.

Each episode of the four-part series is 90 minutes and is titled after a season of the year.

Here are just a few things to know before you start watching: 

1) The first episode is "Winter" 

According to ABC News, the first episode starts off in the cozy Connecticut town of Stars Hollow. Lorelai and Rory, per usual, get started with some quick-witted banter. 

And of course, grandmother, Emily Gilmore, played by Kelly Bishop, is dealing with the loss of her husband, Richard Gilmore.

2) The signature song is gone

The show's signature song, "Where You Lead (I Will Follow)," that we all loved and knew by heart is no more. There's no word on what the new theme song will replace it. 

3) Most of your favorites will pop up

Naturally, Rory's ex- boyfriends -- Jess, Dean and Logan -- will make appearances in the revival. Rory's best friend, Lane, and Lorelai's bestie, Sookie, will also return. 

4) Last, but not least, Luke's Diner is still as it was before

Luke Danes is still as anti-technology as he was in the previous seven season. 

Remember that "no cell phones" sign he would always point at when Lorelai tried to answer her phone in the diner? Well, according to ABC, that hasn't changed. In fact, in the revival, he tries to prevent diners from using WiFi. 


WATCH | In October "Gilmore Girls" fans celebrated the show's reboot by visiting Luke's Diner pop-ups across the country. 

Have fun!
