Three of Rory’s Love Interests Will Return for the ‘Gilmore Girls’ Revival
Having already announced that the fan-favorite series Gilmore Girls will be back in four 90-minute episodes (with the series title and premiere date yet to be confirmed), Netflix revealed three of Rory’s (Alexis Bledel) former love interests will be heading back to Stars Hollow.
Jared Padelecki (Supernatural), Milo Ventimiglia (Gotham), Matt Czuchry (The Good Wife) will make appearances, though no details have been confirmed about their storylines. Padalecki played Dean Forester, Rory’s first boyfriend, while Ventimiglia had a recurring role as Luke’s troubled nephew Jess Mariano, another love interest of Rory’s. In the final seasons, Czuchry played the rich Logan Huntzberger, Rory’s serious boyfriend.

Other familiar faces returning to the show include David Sutcliffe (Proof) as Rory’s father, Liza Weil (How to Get Away With Murder) and Yanic Truesdale (Rumours). On the show’s original run, Weil portrayed Paris Geller, who started out as Rory’s rival but eventually became best friends with her, while Truesdale had a recurring role as Michel Gerard, the concierge of the Independence Inn that later became the Dragonfly Inn.
The four actors join already-confirmed returning stars Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore), Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore), Scott Patterson (Luke Danes), Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore), Keiko Agena (Lane Kim) and Sean Gunn (Kirk Gleason). And Younger‘s Sutton Foster (who worked with Bishop on the Palladino show Bunheads) has been tapped to be in a yet-to-be-announced role.
Original series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino created the revival and is writing, directing and executive-producing it with her husband, Daniel Palladino.
