Premiere Of Warner Bros. Pictures And Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures' "Max" - Red CarpetIf you thought fans of "Gilmore Girls" were excited about the show's upcoming Netflix revival, just wait until you hear what star Lauren Graham has to say about the new episodes. Spoiler alert: She loved them lots.

In an interview with E! News, Graham gushed about the revival series, "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life," telling the outlet that the experience of stepping back into her role as Lorelai Gilmore was a special one.

"It was my most favorite thing I've ever done," the actress told E! of shooting the new episodes. "I was very thankful every day and really could kind of connect to, 'I'm so lucky. Wow, what an experience to get to do this again,' in the way that we don't often get those chances in life. It's not even a do-over, it's just to go back with an understanding of how rare it all was and is. Plus, I just love that material. I love it. I never get tired of it."

That echoes the experience of fellow original star Melissa McCarthy, who's reprising her role as kooky chef Sookie St. James for a small cameo in the revival. Earlier this year, McCarthy described her return to the Stars Hollow set as "just lovely."

As for whether or not there will be more "Gilmore" where "A Year in the Life" came from, Graham told E! there weren't any current plans to revive the series past the four upcoming mini-movies. But we'll keep out fingers crossed all the same.

There's no official release date yet for "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life." It's due to hit Netflix sometime later this year.
