Gilmore Girls Revival Officially Coming to Netflix!Posted: May 5, 2016 at 5:45 pm
Dan Bucatinsky will be appearing on the Gilmore Girls revival, giving the show a taste of Scandal. Bucatinsky is not only an Emmy award winner, he is also an active producer for a number of different shows including The Comeback, Lipstick Jungle, Grey’s Anatomy, and Who Do You Think You Are?. He is also involved in 24 Legacy, In Plain Sight, The Comeback, Marry Me, and Web Therapy as an actor. His next big adventure will be taking up a character in the fictitious town of Stars Hollow for the revival of Gilmore Girls.
Recently Bucatinsky made it known that he would be joining the cast of Gilmore Girls. He even posted an image with Alexis Bledel (Rory) on social media, further giving notion to the fact that he will be working with her. In fact, it appeared that he was working with Bledel exclusively—suggesting that he may have a role as a co worker of Rory’s, or other similar relation. Considering the fact that Rory is a teacher in the revival, it could be that Bucatinsky plays a fellow educator.
Bucatinsky acts as a connection between Shondaland and Stars Hollow. In fact, many others have come before him, representing a link between the two—others include Emily Kuroda, Liz Torres, David Sutcliffe, Liza Weil, and Keiko Agena. All of the former actors went on to make an appearance in a Shonda Rhimes series.
Aside from Bucatinsky there will be many actors appearing in the cast of Gilmore Girls. A few new auditions, aside from Bucatinsky, include Mae Whitman and Sutton Foster. Most of the actors in the cast, however, will be those who were involved in the original seasons of the show. This is certainly not disappointing news for fans who love the original cast. These actors include Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, Scott Patterson, Yanic Truesdale, Keiko Agena, Liza Weil, Milo Ventimiglia, Matt Czuchry, Jared Padalecki, Melissa McCarthy, and they will all be returning to Gilmore Girls. In fact, these are only some of the names compared to the entire cast list.
For some time it was thought that McCarthy, another original star, wouldn’t be coming back to the Gilmore Girls revival. She formerly played the part of Sookie St. James. Amy Sherman-Palladino, the creator of the series, stated that McCarthy was too busy to rejoin the cast. There was some confusion, because McCarthy claimed that she was never invited to reprise her role as Sookie. From that point things only escalated. It wasn’t that there was any discord between either McCarthy or Sherman- Palladino, but both did have high hopes regarding the situation. McCarthy appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and that was when things finally became clear—she said that she would be returning to Gilmore Girls.
McCarthy stated that she went to visit the set and it stirred deep nostalgia and sentiment within her. Getting to see everyone from the old cast and the sets was a nice experience for her. She stated that she believes fans will be happy/thrilled when they see the new show. At this point in time there is no premiere date for the Gilmore Girls revival.
