You know what they say: You can take the bad boy out of Stars Hollow … but he’ll eventually come back?

Following the news that Matt Czuchry and Liza Weil are set to return for Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival, Milo Ventimiglia is confirmed to reprise his role as Jess Mariano.

The revival, which features four 90-minutes episodes, will reunite Gilmore Girls fans with Stars Hollow approximately eight years after the season 7 finale. And last we saw Jess, he was writing books and working for a publishing company in Philadelphia.

And now it seems we’ll see how adult life is treating Jess all these years later. In fact, Ventimiglia is already back at work. The actor tweeted a picture of his Gilmore Girls script.

There’s no word yet on how many episodes Ventimiglia will appear in, but the bigger question remains: With Logan and Jess both on board, will Dean (Jared Padalecki) join the revival? After all, show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has said she’d love to get all of Rory’s exes back in Stars Hollow.
