How Gilmore Girls Superfans Reacted to the Show's Triumphant Return on Friday

They waited almost a decade for the Netflix revival

It's been nine long years since Gilmore Girls was last on television.

The series finale aired on the CW network in 2007. Fans of the show were left somewhat unsatisfied, as the show's creators and showrunners, Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband Daniel, were not involved with the final season due to contract negotiations.

This was disappointing for numerous reasons, one of which was the notorious Final Four Words from Amy. Legend has it she knew the last four words of the series as soon as she started production, but we never got to see them come to light, as she never got to end the series as she envisioned. 

All was quiet on the Gilmore front until rumors started floating around in 2014 that the show would be making some kind of comeback.
