Milo Ventimiglia is keeping quiet about what to expect from "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life," but he's also hoping that fans don't watch the revival with too many expectations.
While promoting his new NBC show, "This is Us," Ventimiglia spoke to us about the upcoming revival, revealing that he hopes people appreciate the new episodes without putting too much weight on them after dreaming about a revival for so long.
"I keep telling people, I say, 'Look, just take the expectations or whatever you've built up in your mind in the last nine years since it's been on and just put all that to bed,'" Ventimiglia says. "Just watch the show and enjoy what the show is."
A less optimistic superfan might take these words as a sign that we might not want to expect Rory (Alexis Bledel) and Jess to end up together when all is said and done. After all, if there's one expectation that's been building for the last nine years, it's that Rory and her (second) high school love will finally find their way back to each other.
Ventimiglia does say, however, that "Gilmore Girls" is getting back to the show we all fell in love with, and fans can expect a satisfying ending.
"I think people are going to be very happy. I think the show gets back to, you know, the fun that we had for six years of making the show with a great closing of the show. So, I think people are going to be very happy to get that good, old Gilmore back," says Ventimiglia.
All in all, we're getting a strange, but reassuring message here: Curb your expectations, but expect to be pleased. We'll take it!
"Gilmore Girls" premieres Nov. 25th at 3 a.m ET/midnight PT on Netflix.
