Deadline is reporting that “Gilmore Girls” will start airing on UP this fall.
UP announced today at TCA that the family network is taking all seven seasons of Warner Bros. TV’s Gilmore Girls, in addition to announcing the premiere dates for two series, Ties That Bind and Last Hope With Troy Dunn, as well as their movie Welcome Home. The 153 one-hour episodes will begin airing this fall. The deal was negotiated by Sophia Kelley, UP’s SVP of programming. The series raised the profiles of such actresses Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel and Melissa McCarthy among many others. The show aired from 2000 to 2007, starting its run on The WB Network before it became The CW. Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, Gilmore Girls is set in a storybook Connecticut town and follows Lorelai Gilmore (Graham) and her daughter Rory (Bledel). Lorelai owns the town’s bed and breakfast, the Dragonfly Inn, with best friend Sookie (McCarthy), and along the way in her day has to contend with her eccentric, well-off parents Richard (Edward Herrman) and Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop). Gavin Palone and Daniel Palladino also served as EPs.
The first couple of reviews for “Jenny’s Wedding” have been released. Given that Alexis has a supporting role outside the family in the movie the reviews focus mostly on the performances of co-star Katherine Heigl and the actors portraying her family. So far the reviews aren’t overly enthusiastic about the storyline but they do praise the cast for their performances. This post will be updated when new reviews appear online.
“And because Jenny’s romantic interests are presented strictly in terms of marriage and family, we never get a strong sense of exactly who her Ms. Right is and what their relationship is like, which seems like a considerable waste of Bledel’s talents.”

Alexis did a beautiful photoshoot for Nylon as well as an interview earlier this year. She talks about “Jenny’s Wedding”, “Gilmore Girls” and the third “Sisterhood” movie among other things.
Alexis Bledel is having quite the summer. On top of the release of her new movie Jenny’s Wedding, where she plays the free-spirited girlfriend to Katherine Heigl’s Jenny, she recently made über fans super happy with her Gilmore Girls reunion down at the ATX Festival. On top of all that, she maybe-not-so-accidentally leaked the fact that her Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants may be reuniting for a new movie. (Yay! Yaaay!)
When we spoke with her, she had tons of ideas for a totally stylish, vibrant shoot. The actor has truly come into her own, both embracing and releasing her past as the titular Gilmore girl—and reflecting on her own marriage (especially in light of Jenny’s Wedding), her career, and what she wants next out of life.
So, tell us about Jenny’s Wedding.
This film is about a woman who has to come out to her family because she wants to get married. She’s lived with her ‘friend’ for a long time. They were roommates, so her family just thinks that they are roommates. And her family’s ultra-conservative, so she has to tell them more about her life. And they each have their own unique reaction to her news that she wants to celebrate. Her family has to go through their own process of understanding who she is, I guess, in a new way, because they had other ideas about the person they thought they knew. But my character was fun to play. She doesn’t come from a conservative family, so I think she’s really comfortable with who she is. She’s not having to face the same challenges. She’s just kind of there for her partner and excited to get married.
Three couples which are forced to make life altering decisions in the face of a disastrous war. Inspired and sometimes blinded by their love, they are as flawed and beautiful as any of the billions who are facing this human-made biological disaster.
