Gilmore Girls fans, your dreams are coming true. For just one day, two Massachusetts coffee shops will be transformed into Luke's Diner to honor the 16th anniversary of every millenial's favorite show. That's right, you can get your very own Stars Hollow experience tomorrow, October 5th, thanks to Netflix, the streaming service behind the hit TV show revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. They are transforming 200 cafes across the country and the lucky two in Mass. are Brighton's Cafenation and Lynn's Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee!
The show’s caffeine loving and fast talking followers can score a free cup of coffee and possibly a “fun surprise under their custom Gilmore Girls coffee sleeve” at all the pop-up locations from 7AM to noon. These pop ups are part of Netflix’s promotions for the four 90-minute episodes of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life that will air on November 25th. The show’s revival was announced last October, alongside the show’s first trailer. We've only been waiting for a whole year now and experiencing Luke's Diner will just be another tease!
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, which is set in Connecticut, is expected to have plenty of original star power return alongside Lauren Graham (Lorelai) and Alexis Bledel (Rory), including Scott Patterson (Luke), Kelly Bishop (Emily), Melissa McCarthy (Sookie), Sean Gunn (Kirk), Liza Weil (Paris), and more. The whole gang is back together! If you don't have a Netflix account, we suggest you sign up quick. November will be here before we know it!
With little surprise, this isn’t the first Stars Hollow inspired event in anticipation to the show’s new episodes. The small Connecticut town that inspired this hit series, Washington, Connecticut, is hosting its first-ever Fan Fest from October 21st-23rd and it’s been sold out for weeks. We hope you were some of the lucky few who have a way in! If not (like us), we hope you take full advantage of a sick day tomorrow and devour the details of this pop up experience and get a coffee at Luke's Diner for a chance to win a fun Gilmore Girls inspired prize! Cheers to you Netflix, you can definitely chalk this up as a win in our book!
