November 25. For all the Gilmore Girls fans out there, it’s a date etched in the diary: the date that the reboot drops on Netflix. Conveniently, that date happens to be a Friday. So cancel your plans, clear your diary and get ready for a night of furious Stars Hollow binge-watching.
Not much is known about the series, other than that it follows a year in the life of everyone’s favourite women named Lorelei, across four seasons. Fans have been furiously theorising about potential plot lines. Will Kirk become Town Mayor? Will Rory end up with Logan? (NEVER).
Today, showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino revealed the first page of the script from the first episode with Entertainment Weekly.

Yes, it’s a tantalising tease and Sherman-Palladino is a cruel, cruel mistress. The first page of the first scene of the first episode doesn’t reveal much.
But it’s better than nothing. We know that Rory has arrived in Stars Hollow (after an absence) looking fantastic, that nothing has shifted in the mother-daughter relationship, and that Lorelei has definitely been reading Goop. (Of course she has).
Thank you for this gift, Entertainment Weekly. We’re just going to be over here, memorising those first few lines.
