While the cast and crew of the Gilmore Girls are busy getting back into their old habits and filming new episodes for us, we’re patiently biding our time with the Gilmore Girls cookbook and Stars Hollow-scented candles, not to mention sneak peeks and behind-the-scenes hints. But now we have one of the key pieces of info we’ve desperately been waiting for. At least, we might.

According to guest Ben Epstein, who appeared on the Gilmore Guys Podcast, he happened to run into GG star Lauren Graham, aka Lorelai, who says that we’ll be back in Stars Hollow by winter. That’s right, it’s looking like December will be the month that the Gilmore Girls return. Can we get an enthusiastic woo because WOO!

Considering the show is currently in production, it totally makes sense that it will be a few more months until we get to see the final results, but that doesn’t make it any easier to wait. Our only consolation is that surely it will be worth every achingly patient moment until then, and we can just keep gobbling up any tidbits of news the way we wish we could gobble up Sookie’s yummy cooking!

Will you be able to wait until December for the return of the Gilmore Girls? Tweet us @BritandCo!
