Yes. So much yes.

Brace yourselves for the epic return of quick-fire dialogues – comedy drama Gilmore Girls is reportedly being revived by Netflix for a short series of four 90-minute films.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the revival may also see the return of its creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and some of its original stars. Among them are Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, who play mother-daughter duo Lorelai and Rory Gilmore in the popular series, which ran for seven seasons from 2000 to 2007. Melissa McCarthy, who played Sookie St. James, may not reprise her role.

Just earlier this year, Amy said it was unlikely that the series will return. She lead the series for the first six seasons before leaving due to a contract disagreement with production company Warner Bros.

"It's always a bummer when you don't get to end it," she said at an ATX Television Festival reunion panel in June. I had hoped maybe that there would have been a call, 'Hey, it's the last episode, do you want to come back?' And there wasn't. But that's OK, that's not the way it works in Hollywood where there are rules."

It's a good thing someone changed their mind about bringing the Gilmores back. Everything is still in the negotiations stage, but if it goes well, production will apparently start next year. It's time to start on a 7-season marathon.
