Gilmore Girls is returning to TV screens after nine long years, meaning that all the actors and actresses on the show are now nine years older. Check out some sneak peaks and spoilers at how time has affected each of these humans!

Who Knew 9 Years of Time Could Make Human Beings Age?


Here’s a promo photo of Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel). Notice that while looking incredibly beautiful, these two characters do not look exactly the same as they did 9-16 years ago. Crazy!


Check out the three stars of the series: Lorelai, Rory, and Emily (Kelly Bishop). If you look closely you can see that their faces and hairstyles are slightly different than they were in 2000-2007. Who woulda thunk?


This is Luke (Scott Patterson) in a sneak peek of the upcoming Netflix season. Despite the signature flannel shirt and backwards baseball cap, this is not the same physical form as we used to know. Man, I hate change.

Here’s a screencap of fan-favorite Kirk (Sean Gunn) in the upcoming revival. Also photographed is a teacup pig. Kirk may be the same weird, loveable, townie as always–but his appearance is definitely different than we used to watch on the WB. I cannot comment on the pig’s aging as I do not think it was in the 7 original seasons. Oh the winds of time, how you continue to blow.

Weirdly, I could not find a photo of Richard (Edward Herrmann) in a new episode, so here’s a portrait of him from the trailer. He actually doesn’t look that different than he used to, maybe the years haven’t–wait, what happened? Oh my god…
