Gilmore Girls fans, rejoice. Lorelai and Rory are headed back to the small screen, thanks to Netflix. Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, and even more of the original Gilmore Girls cast will star in four 90-minute episodes to air on Netflix.

Wrapping in 2007, Gilmore Girls fans have never fully recovered from the loss of their weekly dose of the fast-talking mother-daughter pair whose antics and strife kept viewers completely enamored.

Originally on the WB before it moved to the CW for its final season, Gilmore Girls producer and series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino left before the show ended. She once admitted that the show didn't wrap the way she had envisioned it. Instead she famously planned the show's ending with four unrevealed words, but never had the chance to conclude Gilmore Girls on her own terms.

Some might fear this short, four-series reboot might ruin the legacy of Gilmore Girls. Those fans are told not to be concerned. Amy Sherman-Palladino promises there is no need to worry.

It is believed that production on the Netflix reboot of Gilmore Girls is set to start some time early in 2016. There's been no word thus far on when the series will air.

One rumor surrounding the reboot that will no doubt be disappointing to diehard fans is that Melissa McCarthy, who played Sookie St. James on Gilmore Girls, isn't likely to return.

Were you a Gilmore Girls fan? Are you excited beyond belief to see Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel reprise their roles as Lorelai and Rory Gilmore for this upcoming Netflix reboot?
