A new series of 'Gilmore Girls' is coming to Netflix. The streaming service has confirmed it's reviving the classic comedy-drama with original stars Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Scott Patterson, Kelly Bishop, Sean Gunn and Keiko Agena.

Original producers Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino are also on board to write the new series.

The show will return in the unusual format of four 90-minute episodes, tentatively titled 'Gilmore Girls: Seasons'.

Netflix has the full original seven series (which ran from 2000-2007) available to watch, so you can catch up if you missed it first time round.

The original show centred on Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and her daughter also called Lorelai (Alexis Bledel) but who preferred to be called Rory.

Set in the fictional town of Stars Hollow, Conneticut, it was a coming-of-age comedy-drama in which 16-year-old Rory was accepted to a prestigious private school.

However, Lorelai can't afford to pay the fees, so has to ask her parents for financial help. They agree, as long as Lorelai and Rory come over for dinner every week.

There's no word on what the new series will entail. But it will allow Sherman-Palladino to finish it how she wants. She left the original after its penultimate series, and has spoken publicly about being annoyed at not being asked back for the finale.

There's no word if Melissa McCarthy will return to her role as Sookie St. James. McCarthy's film career has taken off since 'Gilmore Girls' – she'll soon be seen in the 'Ghostbusters' reboot.
