“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” dropped on Friday, Nov. 25. After nine years off the air “Gilmore Girls” was revived by Netflix, which produced four new 90-minute episodes, one for each season of the year: “Winter,” “Spring,” “Summer” and “Fall.” Our favorite mother-daughter duo, Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel), are back, and making fans even happier so is the show’s creator and showrunner from the first six seasons, Amy Sherman-Palladino. Please enjoy our photo gallery above of the top 24 best moments from the revival. This probably goes without saying, but if you haven’t watched all four episodes, proceed with caution — SPOILERS ABOUND!
“Gilmore Girls” originally ran for its first six seasons (2000-2006) on the WB. Then after the WB and UPN merged to form the CW network the show continued for one more year (2006-2007). But in that time Graham was never nominated at the Emmys despite receiving years of critical acclaim, two SAG Award nominations (Best Drama Actress, 2001 and 2002) and a Golden Globe nomination (Best Drama Actress, 2002).
And at the Television Critics Association Awards “Gilmore Girls” won New Program of the Year (2001), was nominated for Best Drama twice (2001 and 2002), Program of the Year once (2001) and Individual Achievement in Drama once (for Graham, 2002). Then after the show switched to comedy the TCA Awards nominated it for Best Comedy (2005) and Individual Achievement in Comedy (Graham, 2006). From watching the revival, we think it would be hard to deny Graham and the rest of the show the plaudits they so richly deserve, and above you can find out 24 reasons why.
