1 / 0
Lorelai (Lauren Graham)
Beanie. Coffee. Gorgeous hair. Some things never change. Lauren’s post-Gilmore career has included Parenthood and a New York Times best seller, NBD.
2 / 0
Rory (Alexis Bledel)
Alexis has travelled from Stars Hollow to The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants and back. The revival finds her at a superhero convention in NYC. Random, but we’ll take it.
3 / 0
Luke (Scott Patterson)
Scott has yet to see the front of a baseball hat and clearly continues to maintain that perfect five o’clock shadow.
4 / 0
Emily (Kelly Bishop)
Rumour has it that Kelly’s been arbitrarily firing maids since we last saw her and this time around, she’s tossing those dining room chairs just as fast.
5 / 0
Sookie (Melissa McCarthy)
Sookie’s still kicking ass in the kitchen.
6 / 0
Lane (Keiko Agena)
Asking for a friend: Did real-life Lane continue practicing the drums?
7 / 0
Richard (Edward Herrmann)
Both Richard and the late Edward Herrmann will be honoured in the revival. The huge portrait is something Richard probably expected Emily to do anyway.
8 / 0
Paris (Liza Weil)
Paris’s eyes are now permanently mid-roll, especially being back at Chilton.
9 / 0
Doyle (Danny Strong)
Fingers crossed that Doyle is the editor-in-chief of the New York Times or some other big-deal paper when the show picks up again.
10 / 0
Dean (Jared Padalecki)
Jared traded his Doose’s Market apron (and his bangs) for superpowers in Supernatural. But even those can’t help him win Rory back…or so it seems with that ~stare~ in the revival.
11 / 0
Jess (Milo Ventimiglia)
Milo stole our hearts the minute he showed up at Luke’s. And although he left the tiny town for bigger things, like This Is Us, he looks even better now, especially with a drink in his hand.
12 / 0
Logan (Matt Czuchry)
Clearly, Matt has a thing for Ivy League characters, as he went from Yale bro to Harvard lawyer on The Good Wife. And in the revival, he even looks as young as a College student.
13 / 0
Miss Patty (Liz Torres)
According to the revival trailer’s town meeting, Miss Patty isn’t at her spot next to Doose. Does this mean she’s finally returned to Broadway?
14 / 0
Babette (Sally Struthers)
Sally doesn’t only volunteer in Stars Hallow, she’s known for her activism worldwide. And when she’s not doing charitable work, she’s been performing in various plays.
15 / 0
Christopher (David Sutcliffe)
After his days as Rory’s dad, David was in Private Practice and the Canadian program Cracked.
16 / 0
Michel (Yanic Truesdale)
Michel might’ve updated his reservation book, but he’s still got that buzz cut, and he’s still living “for moments like this.”
17 / 0
Taylor (Michael Winters)
Taylor will go to his grave stubbornly holding the town meeting gavel and book of bylaws. That is all.
18 / 0
Jackson (Jackson Douglas)
Jackson hasn’t stopped cursing global warming, especially after last season’s tomato crop.
19 / 0
Mrs Kim (Emily Kuroda)
Since Gilmore Girls, Mrs Kim has smiled once (pictured here) and continues to force her grandsons to read the Bible.
20 / 0
Kirk (Sean Gunn)
Nothing’s changed here, folks. Kirk is just as weird, especially when we see him with Rory and Lorelai at Friday night dinner.
21 / 0
Gypsy (Rosa Abdoo)
Looks like Gypsy’s back under the hood and at town meetings.
22 / 0
April (Vanessa Marano)
April has grown up and Luke’s probably trying to shield her from guys.
23 / 0
Brian (John Cabrera)
Since playing Brian, John Cabrera has dabbled in screen writing and filters on Instagram, where he posts a lot of Hep Alien reunion photos.
24 / 0
Zack (Todd Lowe)
As much as I’d like to think Zack is still ordering French fries at Luke’s, he’s actually better known now for his role on True Blood.
25 / 0
Gil (Sebastian Bach)
PSA: Gil, yes the sandwich man/Hep Alien band member Gil, is actually a very famous heavy metal singer who still goes on tour.
26 / 0
Marty (Wayne Wilcox)
Marty, AKA, yet another guy who had a crush on Rory, now acts in theatrical performances in Chicago and New York City IRL.
27 / 0
Liz (Kathleen Wilhoite)
Odds are Liz still attend the Renaissance faire, where she forces Doula (now 10 years old!) into the festive garb while T.J. eats a chicken leg.
28 / 0
T.J. (Michael Deluise)
Wonder if T.J. is still eating chicken legs and still has no idea he actually isn’t a contractor.
29 / 0
Finn (Tanc Sade)
IRL, Finn has dropped the drunken College antics and has become quite the athlete, breaking two diving records in Australia.
