The 'Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life' trailer is finally here – and it's an absolute nostalgia-fest

Ellie Walker-Arnott

Anyone else regretting that 4pm cup of coffee? A full-length trailer for Netflix's new 'Gilmore Girls' revival has just dropped – and we're more than a little bit excited.

The trailer has appeared exactly a month before the four feature-length episodes are due to drop. It features fast talking, heaps of takeaway food, countless pop culture references and almost every beloved character from the show's original seven-year run. 

Of course Lorelei and Rory take centre stage. (The former is struggling with her relationship with Luke while the latter feels lost as her career in journalism stalls.)

But this two-minute, 30-second trailer of joy doesn't stop there. We see Luke, Kirk, Jess, Taylor, Babette, Gypsy, Michel, Dean, Paris, Logan and Lane. Oh, and Sookie (Melissa McCarthy), who's seen shooting icing around a kitchen in a 'pornographic' fashion. 

One character who sadly isn't returning is Lorelei's dad Richard Gilmore, who was played by the late actor Edward Herrmann. However, the people behind the show have ensured he's still an important presence in the reboot, with a portrait so big it covers an entire wall of the Gilmore living room. There are tears too and a memorial service for him, while Emily works out how to live her life without her partner of 50 years by her side. 

Basically, it's everything a 'Gilmore Girls' fan could have asked for. And for those of you yet to be acquainted with the Stars Hollow residents, brace yourselves: 

'Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life' is available to stream on Netflix from November 25.
