Cancel your order at Luke’s diner and grab that cup of coffee to go because there is no time to waste when a “Gilmore Girls” reunion is on the line! That’s right, our favorite quick-witted, caffeine-loving gals from Stars Hollow will reunite at Season 4 of the 2015 ATX Television Festival this summer.
Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel and “Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino will reunite for the first time onstage since the beloved, pop-cultured infused TV series concluded in 2007. So, who will be joining Lorelai and Rory this June in celebration of the 15th anniversary of the series’ debut? No word yet -- but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that Melissa McCarthy (Sookie St. James), Scott Patterson (Luke Danes,) Sean Gunn (Kirk Gleason) and the rest of the “Gilmore” gang will reprise their roles for one more night.
“So after years of peace and quiet these lunatics have chosen to get the chattiest chicks in the world back under one roof? Really? OK. You asked for it,” Sherman-Palladino said in a statement regarding the ATX festival hosting the reunion. “ 'Gilmore’ was the highlight of my ridiculous life. I can’t wait to sit with these unbelievable broads and relive a time where sleep did not exist, where stress and coffee were mama’s little helpers, and where we all dove into the deep end together to make something weird and very, very cool.”
Graham then chimed in with her two cents regarding the reunion in complete and total Lorelai fashion asking, “There’ll be coffee, right? Can’t wait!”
“Gilmore Girls” won’t be the only beloved drama to reunite during the festival. Cue the Paula Cole because “Dawson’s Creek” will also be staging a writer’s room reunion (the first panel of its kind) at the annual event, being held this summer from June 4-7. The show’s creator/showrunner Kevin Williamson, showrunner Greg Berlanti, and writers Jenny Bicks, Julie Plec, Rob Thomas, Liz Tigelaar, Paul Stupin, Rina Mimoun, Maggie Friedman, Anna Fricke and Dana Baratta will all be in attendance to discuss all things “Dawson."
The ATX festival has previously held reunions for the casts of "Friday Night Lights," "Hey Dude," "Roswell" and "Boy Meets World."
