Mark your calendars for Netflix return of 'Gilmore Girls,' 'Black Mirror' – CNET
If you’ve been mourning the sharp and sassy mother-daughter relationship of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore ever since “Gilmore Girls” was canceled in 2007, it’s time to call your mom and load up on coffee and junk food. Netflix on Wednesday announced the premiere dates for its original content, and the “Gilmore” revival is one of them.
Fans can trek back to Stars Hollow with the Gilmores beginning November 25. That’s the day after Thanksgiving, so now you have another item to be thankful for over the holiday turkey dinner.
The show will pick up on the lives of Lorelai and Rory nearly a decade after the original show ended, and offer four 90-minute episodes. And a brief clip shows that Luke’s and the Dragonfly Inn are still up-and-running, and so is Lorelei’s bizarre brain, as she and her daughter argue about whether Amy Schumer would like her.
Schumer even got in on it with a tweeted response in the affirmative.
But before the Gilmores start leading where we will follow (theme song reference!), Netflix will be premiering additional original content. Creepy “Twilight Zone”-like series “Black Mirror” returns for its third season October 21. Since that show’s first episode — about a British prime minister being forced into sexual congress with a pig — ended up having a creepy real-life tie-in, viewers may want to watch these episodes with an eye to the newspaper.
Other Netflix original series coming soon include “Chef’s Table: France,” the Chicago-set series “Easy,” Ashton Kutcher’s comedy “The Ranch,” rom-com “Lovesick,” hostage-negotiation docu-series “Captive,” and a Cuban-accented reboot of Norman Lear’s 1970s classic “One Day at a Time.”
