The upcoming "Gilmore Girls" revival series, "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life," will finally give fans of the series some closure, and is set to feature the famous "final four words" that creator Amy Sherman-Palladino intended to end the series on before abruptly departing the show ahead of its seventh season. As eager fans wait not-so-patiently for the "A Year in the Life" premiere to hear the words that have been almost a decade in the making, star Milo Ventimiglia is promising that they're definitely worth the wait.
Yes, Ventimiglia -- who played Rory's high school boyfriend (and, if we can be biased, OTP) Jess Mariano in the original series, and is reprising the role for "A Year in the Life" -- knows what the final four words are, and recently revealed in an interview with People that Sherman-Palladino told him the secret several years ago. And according to the actor, they're the perfect fit for the series.
"It was just like, oh I get it. Oh wow, that's really lovely," Ventimiglia told People of his reaction upon hearing the famous words.
From what little we know so far about those words, they're spoken in dialogue between two characters -- most likely Rory (Alexis Bledel) and Lorelai (Lauren Graham) -- and they're a payoff of everything that's come before in the series. Not that that's a lot of pressure to put on four little words, or anything.
Regardless of what those words may be, we were already ridiculously excited for the return of our favorite "Girls" after more than nine years. Now, we just have to make it through the next three weeks.
"Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life" hits Netflix on November 25.
