Last week, Netflix finally took us out of our misery and announced that Gilmore Girls: A Year In A Life will be debuting on the streaming service, November 25, 2016! They were even gracious enough to give us a little window into what Stars Hallows looks like in 2016, with a teaser trailer of the town and Rory and Lorelai chatting about pop-culture at the kitchen table.
It’s been nearly a decade since we last saw the Gilmore Girls in action, so we’ve been desperately perusing all social media to try and piece togehter what we might see come November. Though the Gilmore Girls official Instagram page only has six images, there are definitely some major gems, including a VHS of A Film By Kirk and some steaming mugs of hot coffee. However, it was the teaser image posted to the account yesterday that had out eyes bulging out of our heads.
At first glace, the photo looks pretty tame. A delicious display of Pop-Tarts is laid out alongside a mug of coffee. Under the photo, the caption reads “Pop-Tart appetizers to hold us over ’till the pizza comes. And one apple.” However, it was the apple in the middle of the Pop-Tart filled tray that alarmed us! First of all, the Gilmore Girls don’t really DO healthy eating. This could be waived away as a simple shift towards healthier eating habits in the last nine years. However, it’s the apple itself that caused us to do a double take.
Way back in the fifth season of Gilmore Girls in an episode entitled, “Blame Booze and Melville”, Loralei was alarmed by her apple cravings because as she craved them desperately when she was pregnant with Rory. Though Loralei doesn’t end up being pregnant in the episode, it still a story-line that has stuck with us over all these years.
Then again, the apple could just simply serve as a decoration for the tray of Pop-Tarts. We’ll just have to wait until November 25th to find out.
