ATX Television Festival's Closing Night 'Gilmore Girls' reunion panel will be presented by EW
The Gilmore Girls cast is reuniting, and EW will be there to celebrate the return of Stars Hollow’s finest.
EW and the ATX Television Festival are partnering for this year’s fest to present the Gilmore Girls reunion as the ATX Closing Night panel. This year’s ATX festival runs from June 4-7 in Austin, Texas, and offers Gilmore Girls fans a chance to relive the magic of the beloved drama.
In addition to the announcement of EW’s partnership with ATX, new cast members have been added to the panel. Danny Strong (Doyle), Todd Lowe (Zach), Jackson Douglas (Jackson) and Matt Czuchry (Logan) will join the already announced returning cast of Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, Jared Padalecki, Scott Patterson, Keiko Agena, Liza Weil, Liz Torres, Sean Gunn, Yanic Truesdale and John Cabrera. And of course, creator Amy Sherman Palladino will be on hand alongside so many of Stars Hollow’s residents.
And for those who can’t make it to ATX, don’t fear—you’ll still be able to watch the panel.
“We’re thrilled to have EW present Gilmore Girls as Closing Night, as it will allow us to host it in a larger venue for more fans to enjoy, and those who can’t attend will still have the chance to watch it on EW.com,” the executive directors of ATX, Caitlin McFarland and Emily Gipson, said in a statement.
EW will present a host of events throughout ATX, including the first-ever panel at a cruising altitude of 35,000 feet: ATX’s Southwest Airlines TV Party Plane, which ushers panelists attending the festival a unique trip into Austin.
