Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival finally has a name! The series will be called Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore) revealed during a taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“I feel so lucky to get to do it, but it’s also been so bizarre, because I open the door and we’re across the street from you, which wasn’t the case before,” Graham told Ellen DeGeneres. “The set is the same, but we’re in a different place.”

She went on to say she still feels a “deep connection” to her character and is grateful to Netflix and fans for making the revival happen.

The series will be four 90-minute episodes, one for each season of the year, Graham, 49, revealed. She’ll have more to say when her episode of Ellen airs Monday.

The Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is set to land on Netflix later this year. The Ellen DeGeneres Show airs weekdays (check local listings).
