Following the news that all three of Rory’s ex-boyfriends will return for Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival, there’s another man returning to Rory’s life: Her father. 

EW has confirmed that David Sutcliffe will reprise his role as Christopher, Rory’s father, Lorelai’s ex-husband, and a lover of flat-screen televisions. There’s no word yet on how many of the episodes he’ll appear in — the series consists of four 90-minute episodes — but we know that his quick wit will live another day.
