Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham haven’t pretended for one minute that they’re not over the moon excited about the revival of Gilmore Girls for its four-episode run on Netflix. Now Alexis Bledel is even more excited. She just recently learned that The Good Wife actor Matt Czuchry has signed on for the return, too. That means Rory Gilmore’s ex-boyfriend Logan Huntzberger is headed back to Stars Hollow.
Matt Czuchry’s character dated Alexis Bledel’s character after she returned to Stars Hollow from Yale. His return to the show will no doubt add some significant drama, because Logan proposed to Rory in the Gilmore Girls season finale, and she turned him down.

Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino indicated last week that Matt Czuchry might not be the only one of Alexis Bledel’s character’s exes to appear in the revival.
“Our plan is to get as many of [Rory’s] lovely men back as possible. We’re still dealing with who’s going to be in it,” she said. “We definitely want to see them. And we have storylines planned. I just need someone to tell me they’re going to show up.”

In addition to Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham, the Gilmore Girls revival will also include Scott Patterson as Lorelai’s partner Luke, Keiko Agena as Rory’s best mate Lane Kim, Kelly Bishop as Emily Gilmore, and Sean Gunn as Kirk Gleason. Fans are hoping Melissa McCarthy will return to her role as Sookie St. James, but a recent tweet she shared indicates she has yet to be asked.
Thanks for the invite, but sadly no one asked me or Sookie to come back to Stars Hollow. Wish them all the best!! https://t.co/II2Atug4wx
