As fans of “Gilmore Girls” wait with bated breath for the premiere of the revival series “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” to see how Rory, Lorelai and the rest of the Stars Hollow gang turned out, cast members are currently on the talk show circuit promoting the upcoming series. On last night’s episode of “The Tonight Show,” host Jimmy Fallon had “Gilmore Girls” actors Scott Patterson (Lorelai’s love interest Luke), Liza Weil (Paris, the Type A-foil to Rory) and Sean Gunn (town oddball Kirk) on the show to talk about the series.
In a short segment near the end, Fallon brings up how creator Amy Sherman-Palladino knew the four words she wanted to end the series with for years but never had the chance because she was replaced with another showrunner for the final season. Fallon needles the cast for hints about the four words, but only Patterson and Weil know what they are. Gunn suggests that it might be, “Kirk is your overlord.” Watch the video below.
“Gilmore Girls” first premiered on the WB network in October, 2000 and ran for seven seasons. During its initial run and in the years since it left television, it has garnered both critical and popular acclaim.
“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” will premiere on November 25 only on Netflix.
