While we’re over here getting ready to cook up a Gilmore Girlsinspired culinary masterpiece, the folks responsible for bringing Lorelai, Rory and the gang back for the highly anticipated return of one of our all-time fave shows are apparently spending their days rockin’ and caroling through the streets of Stars Hollow. At least, that’s what we’ve gathered based on these new behind-the-scenes pics that are providing us with some seriously exciting hints.

The next pic lacks the seasonal snow, but does feature a familiar face. Pulling a full-on rock’n’roll stance, Sebastian Bach poses on set, which has us crossing our fingers for a Hep Alien reunion performance.

TV trivia: Did you know the band name Hep Alien is an anagram of Helen Pai, who is show producer Amy Sherman-Palladino’s best friend? Now you do, and you can impress your friends with your snazzy Stars Hollow smarts!
