“Gilmore Girls” fans get ready to scream, “Oy with the poodles already!”, because there is great news for you all.

Netflix has confirmed a revival show of “Girlmore Girls.”  Before the official announcement fans were talking about a possible revival of the show because the cast got together last year at the ATX Television festival.

With Netflix just recently announcing the show on Jan. 29 details of the show have been surfacing and are slowly being confirmed.

One rumor that Amy Sherman-Palladino, the creator of the show, has confirmed is the number of episodes fans will be receiving. The revival will consist of four 90 minute episodes.  Each of these installments will be named after a different season of the year. “Gilmore Girls: Seasons” is the rumored name of the series.

Sherman-Palladino is wanting Netflix to release each episode at different times instead of all at once, but it has been unsaid which will happen.

The show will be in real time, which means it has been around eight years since Rory Gilmore graduated from Yale University.

Many of the characters have already been confirmed to make appearances. Both parts of the dynamic mother/daughter duo, Lorelai, played by Lauren Graham, and Rory, played by Alexis Bledel, have been confirmed, as well as many of their past love interests.

Lorelai’s former flames confirmed to be a part of the revival are Luke Danes, played by Scott Patterson, and Rory’s father Christopher Hayden, played by David Sutcliffe.

In addition, the three main love interests in Rory’s life have been confirmed to be back to fight for her heart once again. Rory will be single at the start of the series, which means it is time to pick a side!

Logan Huntzberger, portrayed by Matt Czuchry, was Rory’s college boyfriend who came from a wealthy family. Everyone thought Jesse Mariano, played by Milo Ventimiglio, was the bad boy, but Rory saw a different, softer side to him. And, of course, Jared Padalecki will be returning as Dean Forester, who was her first boyfriend and love.

Other fan favorites confirmed to be in the revival include Rory’s grandmother Emily, played by Kelly Bishop. Unfortunately Edward Herrmann will not be back to play her grandfather, because he passed away in 2014.

It looks unlikely that fans will get to see Melissa McCarthy, who played Sookie St. James, return to the show. Sherman-Palladino said that currently nothing had been written for her, but she would write her in if she had time to do a scene.  McCarthy posted on Twitter saying she had not been asked to come back.

Even though fans will be missing McCarthy, they have new faces to look forward to meeting. Sutton Foster will be joining the Gilmore gang. Foster starred in another show Sherman-Palladino created called Bunheads.

The shows has not received a date for the premiere just yet, but when it finally does be ready to mark your calendars!
