The long-awaited “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” makes its Netflix debutĀ on Friday, Nov. 25. Our Federalist Radio Hour hosts, Mary Katharine Ham and Gracy Olmstead, are also “Gilmore Girls” super fans who discuss their predictions and hopesĀ for the reboot. Senior Contributor Bethany Mandel also joins the conversation to argue which of Rory’s three infamous boyfriends really proved to be worthy.

“I do wonder, depending on the show that comes out and what it does, whether it will call the viewer to more than just this kind of nostalgic, ‘sit back and enjoy this small town life,'” Olmstead said. “Or if it will draw on some of those old themes: life is hard, relationships are hard, you should pursue them anyways.”
