Actors and fans of TV shows that have been off-the-air for years occasionally want to watch reruns of their favorite series or seek for the program’s revival. But in the case of WB/CW series “Gilmore Girls,” while a four-episode revival is welcome, some stars and fans of the comedy-drama are quite apprehensive if it could be on par with the original.

"Gilmore Girls" started to air on Oct. 5, 2000 on The WB and was one of the bedrocks of the network until it transferred to The CW on Sept. 26, 2006. However, barely nine months after the move, the show ended on May 15, 2007 after seven seasons.

Its story revolved around Lorelei Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel) who are residents of a fictional Connecticut town, Stars Hollow. With its fast-paced dialogues that always have pop-culture references – while tackling family, friendship and romance issues – the show was critically acclaimed.

Would "Gilmore Girls" Revival Meet Fans’ Expectations?

Lead star Graham shared on Wednesday at the premiere of her new film, “Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life,” in Los Angeles that she was scared of fans’ reaction to the four-episode revival, titled "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life."

The fans, too, are worried of the revival’s ability to live up to expectations, considering that the original series was on the list of Entertainment Weekly and Time magazines.

On-set Interviews With Returning Cast

Before the Nov. 25 airing of the first of four episodes of "A Year In The Life" on Netflix, the iconic show marked its 16th anniversary on Wednesday, Oct. 5, which the streaming giant observed by releasing a new video of on-set interviews of returning cast members, led by Graham and Bledel, and joined by Scott Patterson, Kelly Bishop, Liza Weil, Sean Gunn and all the three boyfriends of Rory.

Apprehensions aside, Weil said everyone felt connected and bonded because of the series. Milo Ventimiglia added being around great memories is fun and exciting.

Graham said she has so many favorites about doing the show, but quipped, “Just playing this character is my favorite part.”
