Gilmore Girls has a huge following, which is part of the reason why the show came back for a revival. Another reason is that a younger generation got in on the action thanks to Gilmore Girls being available on Netflix. Now that it has been a few days since the new episodes were released, people are starting to post their reactions on social media.
Not surprisingly, the show has many famous fans as well, and several of them were tweeting about their favorite parts of the new episodes. Some of these famous fans have connections and even got a small part in the new episodes like Sutton Foster!
“This is where my brain explodes: I go from supernerdy superfan to on-set talking to Lorelai Gilmore,” the actress told People Magazine. “It was my favorite show of all time. I was totally obsessed with it. When they told me it got rebooted for Netflix and they were writing a part for me, I texted Lauren Graham and said, ‘We’re finally going to be working together. There will be tears.'”
Other famous fans also got on the show like Jason Mantzoukas, Mae Whitman, and more. But not every celebrity was so lucky. Instead, some were at home live tweeting about it with the rest of us. So what did celebrity fans have to say about the revival? Here are 12 celebrity reactions to the new episodes.
