7 Things We Learned From ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ Trailer

Amy Sherman-Palladino, the Jewish creator/writer of the smash hit “Gilmore Girls,” once called her series the “Jew-iest goyium show on television.”

“It’s this extremely white-bred goyim family, and all they did was talk and argue, like Jews,” she said during the show’s 15-year reunion panel discussion last year.

Now our favorite fast-talking (pseudo) Jews are back for round two, with a four part reboot hitting Netflix November 25th. That means so much more coffee, awkward family dinners and wishing we too could live in the picture perfect, cozy town that is Stars Hollow.

We broke down the biggest things we learned from the show’s latest trailer. Hardcore “Gilmore Girls” fans, prepare for all of the delightful feels.
