Later this year, when Gilmore Girls returns to audiences for the first time in nine or so years, there will no doubt be loads of attention given to Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, since they're the duo being directly referenced in the show's title. We also know the revival will be packing a ton of returning characters into the mix, so not all of our favorite Stars Hollow citizens will get a lot of screentime. But thankfully, star Yanic Truesdale revealed that fans will finally be given a good look into the more leisurely life of the sarcasm-espousing Michel Gerard. Here's how Truesdale put it.
Hot damn! In Michel, Gilmore Girls created a character that truly did feel like a coworker, since we could rely on him to be there within the in, putting the "erg" in "concierge," and we never had to worry about things getting too intensely personal during a conversation. But unlike most of our occupational compatriots, Michel was someone that we actually did wonder about. What made him so delightfully judgmental? What does his living room look like? How do phone conversations between him and his mother play out? So many questions!
Without any details to go by, it's hard to guess exactly where Michel's story will go when viewers catch up with him. I suppose someone from his family could be a part of his arc, since this is a show that relies on family connections for a lot of its drama. Or maybe he'll have a new job that's giving him trouble. Or maybe there will be love in the air...but maybe not. When asked about a potential relationship, Yanic Truesdale told this to US Weekly.
Oh man, I would love to see the kind of person that wins Michel's heart and soul, because there you would find the Most Patient Lover Of The Year.
Obviously this won't be Gilmore Girls & Michel, since we'll need to get the nitty gritty on so many other people, too. We want to see how Emily is coping with Richard's death and how all of Rory's ex-boyfriends are getting on with their lives, not to mention Luke and Lorelai's current relationship. And Sookie! And Lane! And Kirk!

Nick is a Cajun Country native, and is often asked why he doesn't sound like that's the case. His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
