People Magazine Interview

Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel were recently interviewed by People magazine, talking about the upcoming Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, the 4-part revival of Gilmore Girls coming to Netflix on November 25th. In the interview, Lauren Graham talks about the loss of Edward Herrmann, who she shares “would have loved” the new series. As a big supporter of the show throughout his time, I can only imagine this to be true.

Lauren shares that though the loss of Edward Herrmann has been difficult, the loss of Richard Gilmore (his character on Gilmore Girls), gave the show “a new complexity and depth,” as we’ve heard before, almost as a “tribute” to Edward.

Lauren shares that walking back into the Gilmore mansion had its own surreal moment for her:

Walking back into the Gilmore house made me feel like, ‘I’m at home. I have to behave. Sit up straight!’

Alexis shares that the mother-daughter dynamic, which has progressed to women supporting each other, continues to be what fans have always loved:

“Their dynamic is so unique. There’s nothing else like it.”

In addition to these insights, People magazine shared a new still of Lauren Graham and co-star Alexis Bledel, which looks to be from the ‘Winter’ episode, the opening episode of Gilmore Girls.


Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life Spoilers: Alexis Bledel Says It Is All On The Page

Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham are reprising their roles as Rory Gilmore and Lorelai Gilmore in Gilmore Girls: A Year In the Life. The reboot of the series created by Amy Sherman-Palladino will premiere on Netflix of Nov. 25.

Bledel and Graham starred in the original series from 2000 to 2007. It debuted on The WB in 2000 and moved to The CW in 2006.

It really felt like no time had passed,” Indie Wire quoted Bledel as saying. “It’s all on the page.

For Graham, going back to Stars Hollow was easy and exhilarating. It brought her back to the first time she played the part and she could not believe she got to do it again, she said.

A sneak peek at the first two minutes of the Gilmore Girls: A Year In the Life premiere episode was screened at the recent Television Critics Association summer press tour. It started with Lorelai sipping coffee while sitting on the iconic gazebo alone.

Fresh from a plane trip home, Rory then joins her mother. Lorelai asks her daughter, “How long’s it been?

Feels like years,” Rory replies. The dialogue subtly refers to the time that has passed since Bledel and Graham last played the characters.

Gilmore Girls: A Year In the Life is divided into four chapters and each chapter is 90 minutes long. According to Sherman-Palladino, this was exactly what they pitched.

What the series creator did not confirm was the fate of the series after the four new chapters on Netflix. She and her husband Daniel Palladino executive produce, write and direct the four episodes.

Aside from Bledel and Graham, original cast members Melissa McCarthy, Kelly Bishop, Keiko Agena, Scott Patterson and Yanic Truesdale are also in the reboot. Milo Ventimiglia, Jared Padalecki and Matt Czuchry are also reprising their roles as Rory’s love interests.
