Fans comb Gilmore Girls trailer for clues

WASHINGTON • After a decade, what are Lorelai, her daughter Rory and others in Stars Hollow up to?

Fans are dissecting the official trailer for Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life, Netflix's anticipated reboot of the dramedy, after its release on Tuesday. The fourepisode revival of the 2000-2006 show will be out on Nov 25.

The rhythm of the show, with series creator Amy ShermanPalladino at the helm, is still the same, the trailer shows. Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) are still eating tons of food. Lots of pop-culture references remain as they joke about everything from Ben Affleck as Batman to Tori Spelling's Benihana grill incident, reported the Washington Post.

But Rory, now in her 30s, is unemployed and unsettled.

Doubts are cast on the relationship of Lorelai and diner owner Luke (Scott Patterson) and Rory's grandmother Emily (Kelly Bishop) is coping with her husband's death.

Finally, Melissa McCarthy does show up, as Sookie St James. The character, a chef, even makes a PG 13-rated joke about cake icing.
