We’ve been following this Gilmore Girls revival news pretty closely (because duh), and every week it feels like a new surprise is revealed. Ready for the latest? Liza Weil — that’s right, Paris Geller herself — has confirmed that she’ll be in Stars Hollow starting next week. The news may be coming fast, but the photos are NOT, sadly, so while we wait for pics of Paris and Rory to leak (and then our eyes to subsequently leak), let’s all instead squee at this photo posted by Yanic Truesdale (Michel) of him and his “old boss.” (!!!)

“I start on Tuesday, which I really feel like bodes well that I get to start on a Tuesday being that we used to be on a Tuesday,” Weil told Variety at the aTVfest in Atlanta. “Tuesday is my first day, and I’m nervous!”

She also confirmed that she’ll be in two of the four new episodes.

“It’s very emotional to read [the scripts],” she said. “It’s like a really magical perfect time machine… I didn’t realize how much I missed her. It was nice to sort of see an old friend.” Now we’re getting emotional!

There’s still no confirmed release date for the reboot, but guess where you’ll be able to hear all about it when there is? Right here.
