November 25, 2016 at 12:01 am (Pacific Standard Time). That's not only mere hours after Thanksgiving dinner, but also the official date for the release of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Netflix. Sam is currently in the studio writing, recording and, of course, singing the la la's for the four 90-minute episodes right now. Mark your calendars! Until then, here's the first trailer for the series.
