'Gilmore Girls' revival could reunite Jess and Rory: Milo Ventimiglia joins cast

When "Gilmore Girls" fans last left Rory, she turned down an all-or-nothing offer from love Logan on the series finale. So who will be Rory's romantic interest when the highly anticipated revival hits Netflix?

Well, only time will tell, but it looks as if she'll have options — and one of them will be Jess!

Following the news that Logan (Matt Czuchry) is headed back to Star Hollow, Milo Ventimiglia — the man behind then-boy Jess — took to Twitter and revealed that he's already on the set.

Jess Mariano was, of course, one of three guys to steal Rory's heart over the series' original seven-season run, and the brooding bad boy was certainly a fan favorite.

But he and Logan may not be the only ones returning to vie for Rory's heart this time around. There's already buzz that Jared Padalecki, who played "perfect first boyfriend" Dean, will repo be back in the mix, too.

And there will also be one not-so-familiar face headed to Stars Hollow: Sutton Foster. Netflix hasn't yet revealed what role the "Younger" actress will play.
