Gilmore Girls revival on Netflix casts Sutton Foster from Bunheads

Posted on


Someone new is moving into Stars Hollow.

Sutton Foster has been added to the Netflix revival of Gilmore Girls, EW has confirmed.

She is the first addition from outside the original cast to join the series. Foster’s news comes on the same day Netflix confirmed the additions of Gilmore Girls vets Milo Ventimiglia, Matt Czuchry, Liza Weil, and Yanic Truesdale to its four-episode continuation.

Foster starred in Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino’s show Bunheads, which lasted one 18-episode season on ABC Family. It’s unclear whether Foster will reprise her Bunheads role as Michelle, a Las Vegas showgirl who finds herself teaching at a dance school in a sleepy town, in Gilmore Girls. The actress currently stars in TV Land’s sitcom Younger.
