The Comprehensive Guide to Every Character Coming Back for the Gilmore Girls Revival
RORY GILMORE (ALEXIS BLEDEL)
She saw Barack Obama into the White House – and everyone's dying to know what she has been up to since!
LORELAI GILMORE (LAUREN GRAHAM)
To be honest, we hope this Gilmore is right where we left her: killing it professionally with the Dragonfly Inn and falling back in love with Luke. The real question: Is there a new Gilmore girl (or boy?!) in the equation?
LUKE DANES (SCOTT PATTERSON)
Last time we saw Luke, he and Lorelai were on their way to a reconciliation. (Fingers crossed they're married, fingers crossed they're married.)
EMILY GILMORE (KELLY BISHOP)
It'll be bittersweet to see Emily in the revival series, as she'll be a widow (Edward Herrmann, who played her husband Richard, passed away last year) – but we're eagerly anticipating her return.
JESS MARIANO (MILO VENTIMIGLIA)
The actor behind Rory's bad boy senior year flame (and Luke's nephew!) announced his return in a tweet that read, "What a great time to get back on set with some friends. #JessIsBack"
LOGAN HUNTZBERGER (MATT CZUCHRY)
We left Logan broken-hearted after Rory rejected his graduation day proposal. They may not have ended things engaged, but clearly, they've kept in touch.
DEAN FORESTER (JARED PADALECKI)
And rounding out the collection of Rory's boyfriends is her first love, Dean, who spent his past few years outside of Stars Hollow on Supernatural.
PARIS GELLER (LIZA WEIL)
The show may be called Gilmore Girls, but it wouldn't be complete without Geller's trademark snark.
DOYLE MCMASTER (DANNY STRONG)
And as we all know, you can't have Paris without Doyle. We hope he's as high-strung as ever.
KIRK GLEASON (SEAN GUNN)
Could Kirk and Lulu have tied the knot – and perhaps, even had kids – in our absence?
MICHEL GERARD (YANIC TRUESDALE)
The Dragonfly may be missing an owner in the Gilmore revival, but thankfully, it'll still have its sassy French concierge.
TAYLOR DOOSE (MICHAEL WINTERS)
Stars Hollow's town selectman may be back, but it remains to be seen if he's still wielding power.
CHRISTOPHER HAYDEN (DAVID SUTCLIFFE)
Things ended on a strange note for Lorelai and Chris, but here's hoping they've patched things up for Rory's (and their friendship's) sake.
LANE KIM (KEIKO AGENA)
New mom Lane will now be a veteran mom – her kids, Steve and Kwong, will be about 10 years old, and most likely, able to listen to whatever they want.
ZACH VAN GERBIG (TODD LOWE)
Lane's husband is back, and hopefully, still rocking out with Hep Alien.
MRS. KIM (EMILY KURODA)
While Zack and Lane are probably introducing their kids to the joys of rock, we have no doubt that Grandma Kim is showing them the joys of the Lord.
MISS PATTY (LIZ TORRES)
Without Miss Patty, news (and rumors) would never spread in Stars Hollow!
BABETTE (SALLY STRUTHERS)
And if Miss Patty was going to be there, Babette pretty much didn't have a choice. (No word yet on Maury, though.)
GYPSY (ROSE ABDOO)
Because what's an episode of Gilmore Girls without everyone's favorite reluctant mechanic?
APRIL NARDINI (VANESSA MARANO)
Luke's daughter undeniably played a role in the breakup of his engagement to Lorelai, so we're keeping our excitement tempered for this return.
CAESAR (ARIS ALVARADO)
Because the residents of Stars Hollow need their Luke's.
And last but certainly not least, Lorelai's particular canine is making a reappearance – the years have done nothing for her selective personality.
