Lauren Graham reveals title of 'Gilmore Girls' reboot on 'Ellen'

As if this week's buzz about Alexis Bledel having had a baby last fall wasn't enough to have "Gilmore Girls" fans reeling, there's even bigger news to process this morning: Netflix’s revival of the popular show now has an official title.

Lauren Graham announced the reboot's name during a surprise visit to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" airing Friday. "It's been the most incredible experience. I cry trying to talk about it," she added.

So, what's the name of show we'll be bingeing on (hopefully) later this year? It'll be called "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life." The four new 90-minute episodes are rumored to take place during the four seasons, respectively: winter, spring, summer and fall (likely a hat tip to Carole King, who sings the show's theme song).

The original series wrapped its seven-season run in 2007, and nine years later, we're all excitedly anticipating the very lengthy new episodes.

Because wait, there's more! Netflix went on to tweet an official poster for the show, along with the caption, "It's official. We know this because now there's a title. #GilmoreGirls"

"Live more. Laugh more. Love more. Eat more. Gilmore," reads the cheeky poster, which also features — what else? — a steaming cup o' joe.

And while we still can't be sure of exactly what's going to go down in those four new episodes, we do have some clues to help us along. Netflix recently released some stunning images of the cast doing their thing on-set, and a bit of sleuthing helped us understand what's changed, what's stayed the same, and what surprises are in store for us when the series premieres.
