Since Netflix released Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, no one has been able to stop talking about it. Let's face it, the show was incredible and after 10 years, many of us (myself included) are trying to catch up and refresh our memories on all seven seasons.
We promise not to reveal anything in the new season, but there definitely are some season 1-7 spoliers! Here are some pretty cool behind-the-scenes facts you wish you knew sooner.
Lorelai and Rory are always, and we mean always, drinking coffee on the show. However, Alexis actually hates coffee. She hates it so much that every time you see her drinking "coffee" on the show it's really Coca-Cola.
Luke was supposed to be a woman, but the producers thought "there wasn't enough testosterone" on the show, so they went with a man instead. Scott Patterson, who plays Luke, was only hired to appear in the pilot. His and Lauren Graham's chemistry was so obvious and perfect that he became a series regular.
Milo VentimigliaandAlexis were not only a couple on the show, but they dated off screen too! Whoever said love isn't like what it is on TV is mistaken? Their relationship went strong for about three years.
Milo's character, Jess, who was also Luke's nephew, was not supposed to be on the show for as long as he was. Like uncle like nephew? He was so likable that he was offered a six season contract as a series regular.
If you've seen the show, you're well aware of the fast-paced dialogue. Because everyone talked so fast, the scripts were around 75-80 pages long versus the standard 45-50 pages! This also affected the actor's ability to improvise any of their dialogue.
The town of Stars Hollow from the show was based on Washington Depot, Connecticut. While on a trip with her husband, creatorAmy Sherman-Palladino was inspired by Washington Depot to create Gilmore Girls.
