Fans of TV show Gilmore Girls have been given a sneak peek into the revival currently being filmed for Netflix.

Entertainment Weekly has released a series of behind-the-scenes shots which give us hints into what has happened to the characters from the town of Sleepy Hollow since fans last saw them in 2007.

Lorelai (Lauren Graham) looks pretty loved up with her on-again, off-again boyfriend Luke (Scott Patterson). The pair are seen holding hands and walking down a leafy street in their picturesque town, smiling like lovebirds.

For Rory (Alexis Bledel) it looks like her dreams of becoming a journalist haven't come to fruition. It appears Rory has traded the campaign trail for the classroom, seen standing in front of a classroom in teacher mode.


In another snap, Rory and Lorelai line up to audition for the town musical wearing some psychedelic late 1960s early 1970s garb.

The final photo shows Emily (Kelly Bishop) sitting in a chair in repose, looking immaculate. Things will be a bit different for her character this time around without her husband Richard, played by Edward Hermann, who died in 2014.

Technically, this won't be a new season but four 90-minute movies and fans have been rejoicing because Gilmore Girls original creator and showrunner, Amy Sherman-Palladino, has signed on for all four.

Sherman-Palladino wasn't involved in the last season of the hit comedy drama, much to the chagrin of the show's fans.

According to TV Line there is still hope that superstar Melissa McCarthy could reprise her role as chef Sookie.

The actress revealed earlier this year that she hadn't been asked to return but in the Entertainment Weekly article, Sherman-Palladino extends the invitation to the star.

"We've just put it out into the universe; we're here until May 10," she said.

"I know what the scene is. Ill pre-light it for her. She can drive up, run in, shoot it, and run out. I can get her in and out in two hours."

McCarthy is expected to confirm her return to the show during an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show on Friday, reports TV Line.
