UPDATE: Actress Lauren Graham confirmed via Twitter on Thursday that a "Gilmore Girls" revival on Netflix was officially in the works. 

"I CAN NOW CONFIRM: it's time for me, and this jacket I stole in 2007, to return to work," Graham said. 


Netflix also tweeted out its own way of confirming the news: 

The revival, apparently called "Gilmore Girls: Seasonswill be four, 90-minute episodes, according to TV Line. All of your cast favorites -- Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Scott Patterson, Kelly Bishop, Sean Gunn and Keiko Agena -- will be back! 

PREVIOUSLY: Mrs. Kim would be piiiiiiiised if she found out Lane was giving hints about Netflix's "Gilmore Girls" revival. She runs a tight ship. 

Luckily, Keiko Agena, who played Rory Gilmore's closest confidante, Lane Kim, on the beloved WB series for seven seasons, is a little more loose-lipped. The actress recently shared an intriguing update about the revival on social media that's got fans very excited.  

Last week, Agena snapped a photo with Helen Pai, a longtime producer on the series and the real life inspiration for Lane.

"With the REAL LIFE Lane Kim, Helen Pai. :) Good things are coming," she captioned the photo of the duo. Pai is a childhood friend of series creator Amy Sherman Palladino and Lane's band Hep Alien is an anagram of her name. Her husband is even named Dave Rygalski. #GilmoreGirls #royalty. 

Um, the fountain of youth is clearly located somewhere in Stars Hollow (totally under the gazebo) because Agena has legit not aged.

It's unclear why the real and fake Lane Kim are spending time together, but we can't help but assume Netflix is responsible for the reunion. 

The streaming service has yet to officially announce the much-anticipated revival (WHEN?!), but thanks to some hardcore fans, we've gotten some updates on production. 

New photos of possible "Gilmore Girls" sets like Miss Patty's dance studio and what looks like Luke's Diner or Taylor Doose's Old Fashioned Soda Shoppe surfaced online in early January. 

And then, a posting for actors appeared on Backstage.com, revealing that the series would starting on Feb. 2 to June 30 and premiere sometime in 2016.
