Netflix is streaming all seven seasons of "Gilmore Girls" starting October 1
Fans are already planning to spend copious amounts of time binge-watching
The series first ran from 2000 to 2007
Netflix has proverbially kissed “Gilmore Girls” fans in aisle 3. By the ant spray. (That’s a good aisle.)
Starting October 1, as first reported by Decider, Netflix will begin streaming all seven seasons of “Gilmore Girls.”
The popular series, which revolved around mother-daughter duo Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel), originally ran from 2000-2007. The pair’s special relationship, combined with their storybook, leafy town and its sweetly eccentric inhabitants, made for some magical moments.
As edgy as it was cozy (yes, edgy!), “Gilmore Girls” is rubber-stamped on fans’ hearts like Lorelai’s would-be Mel Brooks tattoo, and Netflix couldn’t have picked a better month to begin streaming. (If you’ve never watched “Gilmore,” fall is the best time to start from the beginning, since the season perfectly matches the small town charm of “Gilmore Girls’” Stars Hollow. You’ve got your pumpkins, pie, pumpkin pie, scarves, snow and always plenty of coffee.)
Netflix’s announcement is a huge win for the die-hard fans, who will no longer have to cycle through DVDs the way Lorelai mainlines coffee. This’ll be far less labor intensive, although no less time-consuming:
“Oh man, Netflix is going to have the entire run of ‘Gilmore Girls’? This isn’t going to be good for my productivity. Or my hygiene. Or my life,” one fan tweeted.
” ‘Gilmore Girls’ is coming to Netflix. Please don’t speak to me after October 1st, I’m v busy (indefinitely),” said another.
So thank you, Netflix. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
