24 Times the Gilmore Girls Cast Sparked Major Nostalgia by Reuniting
Where the Gilmore Girls cast lead, we will follow — and that includes geeking out over cast reunions! The cast of the show have reunited a few times for official projects, such as a reunion panel or the Netflix revival, but many of them have stayed in touch over the years and sometimes share a few candid pictures or surprise videos on social media, just for fans.
Several of the main cast members, including the actual "Gilmore girls" Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, aren't really on social media these days, but others still maintain a presence, talk about their characters, and seem to enjoy gracing fans with the occasional surprise reunion! Here are just a few times the Gilmore cast have made us smile with sweet pics reminding us of just how great this cast always was.
