Mae Whitman, who starred alongside Lauren Graham on NBC's "Parenthood," will reunite with her onetime onscreen mom in the upcoming "Gilmore Girls" revival.
TVLine reports that Whitman has signed on for the revival in a cameo role, though the specifics are being closely guarded for now. What the site can tell us, however, is that Whitman "shares a really fun (albeit small) moment with Graham that will delight 'Parenthood' fans."
Graham played mom Sarah Braverman to Whitman's daughter Amber for six seasons on the NBC drama, though of course, her portrayal of Lorelai, mother of Alexis Bledel's Rory on "Gilmore," preceded that show. Could the scene between Graham and Whitman perhaps have something to do with the awkwardness of Graham's two TV daughters colliding? Whitman hilariously pointed out the (fake) tension between herself and Bledel when the pair met last summer.
Regardless of the specifics, we're excited to see the pair together again onscreen. And considering Whitman is a huge "Gilmore" fan, we're glad that she's able to realize her dream of visiting Stars Hollow. If only the rest of us were so lucky.
The "Gilmore Girls" revival is set to hit Netflix sometime later this year.
