New Yorker and new doctor Zoe Hart accepts an offer from a stranger, Dr. Harley Wilkes, to work in his medical practice in Bluebell, Alabama. She arrives to find he has died and left half the practice to her in his will.
In addition to providing a timeline for the four-episode narrative, the names of the episodes ("Winter," "Spring," "Summer," and "Fall") are a tribute to songwriter Carole King. King, who both co-wrote the song "Where You Lead"--which became the theme song for the original series--and played the role of Sophie Bloom on it, also wrote the song "You've got a Friend," which in the 1970s was a Number 1 hit for both James Taylor and King herself. "You've got a Friend" contains the lyrics "You just call out my name / And you know wherever I am / I'll come running, to see you again / Winter, spring, summer or fall / All you have to do is call / And I'll be there, yes I will / You've got a friend."

Gilmore Girls will always have a special place in my heart. It was the show that got me through high school with characters as refreshing and relatable as Lorelai and Rory. The story arcs were captivating and Stars Hollow becomes a distant place you hold dear. If you can't get enough of the Gilmore Girls, the revival is all you could hope for and more.
It's as endearing as when Gilmore Girls began, and although the show changed stylistically, it represents the modern age well and brings the characters back to life with their original personalities and characteristics. Cameos from Parenthood actors and references to other relevant Netflix shows were a great touch, making the revival as lovable as the original show! The revival does a spectacular job of giving previous story lines closures that just feel right, and bringing possibilities to light for future episodes.
This show is an absolute must watch if you have ever known and loved the Gilmore Girls. This can't be the end! I have very high hopes for this revival and it's continuation. Waiting for more!
