It’s been nearly nine long years since we last visited Stars Hollow, and let’s be honest – the seventh and final season of Gilmore Girls was a letdown for various reasons. But rejoice! The quirky fast-paced comedy drama full of pop culture references and high school crushes is back thanks to Netflix. In “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” viewers get the ending they should have received in 2007.
Show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino left before the final season, and the return was her chance to see her vision for this story through. She, along with her husband and executive producer, Daniel Palladino, cleaned up the unsatisfied mess season 7 left with many fans. The revival has incorporated every bit of Stars Hollow nostalgia a “Gilmore” fan could want, while still moving the narrative forward. Every nod to the past seven seasons fits seamlessly in the now-present lives of these characters and fictional town.
