Another fan favorite is returning to Gilmore Girls, in the best casting reveal yet.

It’s very likely that the world’s sassiest, nerdiest and bluntest BFF, Paris Geller (Liza Weil), is making her way back onto our screens.

That’s right people, it looks like Rory and Paris, A.K.A. the ULTIMATE besties, will be reunited once more.

Isn’t that just glorious? I swear, Paris is my spirit animal.

This could be enough to soothe the pain we suffered after hearing Sookie St. James (Melissa McCarthy) will not be starring in the revival Netflix series.

It’s important to note this info hasn’t been confirmed by Weil, Netflix or Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino… BUT (and this is an important but), it has been let-slip by Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore) in a recent interview.

“But these scripts are good,” Bishop told TVLine. “They’re really good. And bringing back all of those characters is so delicious. Like Gypsy (Rose Abdoo); I always loved Gypsy. And Paris is a hoot. It’s unbelievable what Amy has written for Paris. People are going to have so much fun with it.”

I’ll be completely honest, I did have to Google search who Gypsy is before remembering she’s the local mechanic who always, ALWAYS, has pigtails in her hair.

How could I forget Gypsy?!


Anyway, let’s not lose site of the main point here: PARIS IS RETURNING YOU GUYS! (I think. Maybe. Probably.)

Surely lines wouldn’t be written for the wonderful Liza Weil unless her return was confirmed? Right? Right??

And considering Paris oh-so-happily ended up with the self-righteous Doyle (Danny Strong)… this means he’s probably locked in for a role too, correct?

I loved Doyle, so please TV and Netflix Gods, tell me I’m correct.

Imagine. Just imagine just how epically awesome this season will be if we see a return of TV’s sassiest couple Paris and Doyle.

Every time I feel a wave of tears coming on about Sookie’s inexcusable absence, I’ll remind myself of Paris’s return.

This is a good day, you guys. This is a very good day.
