A comeback of the American comedy-drama series “Gilmore Girls” is reportedly in the works, with reports claiming Netflix is planning to revive the series with new episodes.

Netflix is said to be toiling with the idea of pulling out four 90-minute episodes instead of an entire season of 60-minute episodes of the series. The revival of “Gilmore Girls” was revealed by TV Line’s Michael Ausiello on Monday.

Helmed by Amy Sherman-Palladino, the hit series starring Lauren Graham (as Lorelai Gilmore) and Alexis Bledel (as Rory Gilmore) premiered on WB in October 2000 and ended its run after its seventh season on May 15, 2007. The final season of the show was aired on the successor network of WB, The CW. The show was also listed as one of Time magazine's "All-TIME 100 TV Shows" in 2007.

The show regained popularity as Netflix started streaming the series in October last year. Fans of “Gilmore Girls” have been speculating about the show's revival since then, but the announcement about its comeback was only made recently. However, in June, Sherman-Palladino denied reports regarding the revival of the show.

The Hollywood Reporter states that Sherman-Palladino is being asked by Netflix to produce the show again, and actors Graham and Bledel will be roped in to reprise their roles as the mother-daughter duo. However, Netflix will have to look for a replacement for Melissa McCarthy, who portrayed the role of Sookie, Lorelei's best friend.

Netflix has revived many shows, including American television sitcom “Arrested Development.” However, the international provider of on-demand Internet streaming media has not yet commented on the reports about "Gilmore Girls" that have been circulating online.

Sherman-Palladino was the face behind “Gilmore Girls” for six seasons, but a contract dispute with the studio made her quit the show. The director even announced that she had an idea for the perfect climax for the show. Now that the show is said to make a comeback, Sherman-Palladino is expected to finally implement that idea.

Reps for Warner Bros. and Netflix are yet to make an official announcement regarding the news.
