The return of the Gilmore Girls is just over a month away, and we’ve been busy wondering about the state of Rory’s love life and trying to figure out who she might end up with (if she happens to end up with anyone, that is). We’ve also been curious about the clues around Lorelai’s relationships (is she pregnant?!), as well as the other beloved characters in the series. Well, now we have a few deets direct from a fan fave. Yanic Truesdale, who played snobby yet lovable Michel, has revealed that his character now has a thriving love life and we’ll get an inside look.

Fans will remember Michel as the Assistant Manager at Dragonfly Inn, AKA “Mr. Grumpy Pants.” Somehow, despite the fact that he was usually snarking at someone and usually particularly unpleasant, Michel was also totally lovable and adored by fans.

Back for the new four extended episodes, we’re going to get to see an entirely new side of the character. “Michel has grown into someone who has a love life, which we’ve never seen before,” Yanic told ET, adding that in the past, “he would go on dates, but it was very vague — we didn’t see anyone or see the dates.”

But that’s all going to change with the new episodes. “We’ll get to know much more about who he is personally. That’s the big change for me.” It’s a big change for us too. And we can’t wait!

Don’t forget (as if you could!) — Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life hits Netflix on November 25.
