Will they or won’t they? That’s the big question as rumors fly around the possibility of a revival the much-loved linear series Gilmore Girls on Netflix.

Media reports indicate the series, created by Amy Sherman-Palladino and starring Lauren Graham (pictured, left), Alexis Bledel (pictured, right), Kelly Bishop and Scott Patterson, is indeed in the works. The reboot is expected to be packaged in a limited run consisting of four 90-minute episodes.

The SVOD has successfully revived linear programming before, notably Arrested Development, which was cancelled by Fox in 2006 but was recreated for an original fourth season by Netflix in 2014. More recently, Netflix confirmed a Full House spin-off, Fuller House, which is set to stream across territories in 2016.

So far, the best hope of a return to Stars Hollow has come from Lorelei Gilmore herself, or, rather, Graham, who sent out a tantalizing Tweet to her 325,000 fans:

It’s all been enough to stoke a social-media firestorm, with #GilmoreGirls trending on Twitter Oct. 20, the day after the news broke.
