'Gilmore Girls' revival series in the works at Netflix

The small screen welcomes back the "Gilmore Girls".

Negotiations for the returning of the series, with creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and original stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel are being done by Netflix.

However, Netflix is looking to approach the revival as four 90-minute movies as opposed to a 10-episode series, according to multiple sources. A truly strong performer for the streaming service was the Warner Bros. dramedy, which launched in 2000.

Initially "Gilmore" ran for seven seasons and 153 episodes on The WB/CW, six of which were done by Sherman-Palladino before she exited following a contract dispute with the studio. A great opportunity for Sherman-Palladino to not only return to her own series but also to have the final word, is the revival, done by NETFLIX.

Earlier this years, during a reunion panel at the Austin TV Festival, while speaking candidly about the latter, Sherman-Palladino noted: "It's always a bummer when you don't get to end it. 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."

Although many of the original actors are in talks to return, unfortunately Melissa McCarthy (Sookie St. James) is not expected to be one of them. Her career has skyrocketed since Gilmore wrapped in 2007, with star vehicles on TV ("Mike & Molly") and in film ("The Heat," "Ghostbusters"). 

As Netflix preps a revival of Full House, aptly titled "Fuller House," another series that's performed well for the service, the news for the "Gilmore Girls" came.Another season of "Arrested Development," which initially ran on Fox, is said to be worked on by the production as well.

The plan for the "Gilmore Girls" is to start production next year, according to one insider, though talent deals on  the series are not closed yet.

I know I can't wait to see my favourite girl series back on screen, how about you?
