Amy Sherman-Palladino’s series about a fast-talking mother and daughter a.k.a Lorelai squared finally has a premiere date and trailer.

Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will premiere Thanksgiving weekend on November 25, 2016 at 12:01 a.m. PT. The series will consist of four 90-minute episodes, covering a different season of the year. The streaming giant teased the first two minutes of Winter for the critics in the room, but since you weren’t there, we’ll just have to show you the first official teaser trailer.

The series will be released all at one, per usual, even though Sherman-Palladino would prefer a week-by-week situation. And don’t worry, the last four words are just as important this time around, so don’t go spoiling it for everyone, ok?!

The cast was thrilled to return to step into the shoes of these now iconic characters. “I knew it would be special right from the get-go,” said Scott Patterson who plays Luke. “The more time goes by, the more satisfying it becomes and the show becomes iconic.” Patterson gave a nice shoutout to the ATX Television Festival for “driving it home to all parties involved.”

Lauren Graham added: “For me, it was an incredible experience. It was like going to college when you’re really ready. We were given the gift to go back knowing those things and it was a rare opportunity.”

Of course, someone brought up the Melissa McCarthy controversy which Sherman-Palladino quickly shot down, saying, “we all knew between us that we would make it work one way or another. It somehow took on a life of its own. She and Lauren [Graham] have a weird Lucy and Ethel thing and you kind of have to see it, to get it.” “Melissa came on one of our last days and it was so great,” added Graham. “Had it not happened it would have felt like a gap.”

Let’s not forget all of Rory’s boyfriends, all of whom  will “make an appearance in one way or another,” says Bledel.
