'Gilmore Girls': Alexis Bledel, Lauren Graham preview the revival, Lorelai's 'midlife crisis'

Posted on

Last time Gilmore Girls fans saw Rory and Lorelai, Rory was just beginning her exciting new career in journalism while Lorelai was rekindling her romance with Luke. However, when the upcoming Netflix revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, picks up eight years later, a lot has changed. Yes, Luke and Lorelai are still together, but let’s just say that Rory will no doubt have been affected by big changes in the journalism industry.

Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel sat down with EW to discuss what their characters have been through — most importantly, of course, is losing Richard Gilmore, who was played by the late Edward Herrmann. The stars previewed Rory’s return to Stars Hollow, Emily as a widow, and Lorelai’s midlife crisis. Watch their interview above.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life hits Netflix Friday, Nov. 25.
