Gilmore Girls is already filming a brand new series for Netflix subtitled Seasons, and while we know about a slew of returning cast members, the show hasn’t been super open about the new people heading to the series. Despite not knowing about some of the newbies, this week the show got a little Scandal-ous with its leaks when we learned actor Dan Bucatinsky will be appearing in Gilmore Girls: Seasons. The actor broke the news himself. Check it out:
If I had the opportunity to snag a photo with Alexis Bledel and then throw it up on Instagram for the world to see, I would do it, too. Dan Bucatinsky also shared a second post noting that he was heading to the set early in the day to start filming his next big role.
At work bright and early with the one and only [Alexis Bledel], great crew of this classic.
The former Scandal star isn’t the first new character to be added to the Gilmore Girls universe. Earlier this spring, we learned that Sutton Foster, who just so happened to star in Amy Sherman-Palladino’s other series Bunheads, was also joining Gilmore Girls as a new character. (Luckily her schedule worked out, as she's currently starring in TV Land's Younger.) The show hasn’t enlightened us about the roles these new actors are playing, so thewhole thing has been shrouded in a bit of mystery so far. Still, I can’t wait.
Dan Bucantinsky doesn’t have any connection with Amy Sherman-Palladino, at least within his resume, but the actor and producer has been a part of a slew of major projects. Most recently, he appeared in Scandal, Web Therapy and Marry Me. He also looks super adorable whilst posing with Alexis Bledel, and really that's all we need to know about him.
Along with the new characters, a slew of original cast members will be back, including Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Luke Patterson, Jared Padalecki, Milo Ventimiglia, Matt Czuchry, Keiko Agena, and many, many more. Although reports first indicated that Melissa McCarthy would not be able to pop in, she eventually reworked her schedule to make it happen, as well.
Gilmore Girls doesn’t have a premiere date, but luckily Netflix has a lot of other good shows coming up while we wait. In addition, you can check out what else we know about the upcoming revival series here.
