Netflix is reportedly closing a deal with The Warner Bros. to revive the beloved series “Gilmore Girls.”

Sources say the revival would be done with creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, who directed six of the seven seasons, according to TV Line. Instead of a 10-episode series, Netflix will be releasing four 90-minute movies.

Palladino left the show because of a contract dispute, according to TV Line. The revival would allow her to end the show the way she intended to.

Many of the original cast members, including Lauren Graham, who plays mother Lorelai Gilmore, and Alexis Bledel, who plays daughter Rory Gilmore, are said to return for the revival. Melissa McCarthy, who plays Sookie St. James, is not expected to return.

Fans got some hope for a “Gilmore Girls” return when Lauren Graham addressed the news on Twitter Monday night.

The series aired seven season and 153 episodes before ending in 2007. Netflix added “Gilmore Girls” to its streaming service last October and it has been a favorite among users.
