Netflix released a full-length trailer for “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” on Tuesday, October 25, exactly one month before the four-part revival premieres on November 25. What do you think of the scenes from the new season? Does it live up to the original series? Watch it above.
From the trailer we learn that family patriarch Richard Gilmore has passed away — his portrayer Edward Hermann died in real life in 2014 — and that his widow Emily (Kelly Bishop) is picking up the pieces: “I was married for 50 years. Half of me is gone,” she laments. Elsewhere, Lorelai (Lauren Graham) experiences relationship woes with Luke (Scott Patterson) while Lorelai’s daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel) is struggling professionally and “feeling very lost these days.”
In addition to the core cast the new trailer also gives us a glimpse at supporting actors Jared Padalecki, Milo Ventimiglia, Liza Weil, Keiko Agena, Matt Czuchry, Yanic Truesdale — and yes, Melissa McCarthy too, reprising her career-launching role as neurotic chef Sookie St. James.
“If it brings you joy you keep it, and if it doesn’t, out it goes,” says Emily in one scene while de-cluttering her estate. “A Year in the Life” definitely looks like a keeper. Do you agree?
