Details from the "Gilmore Girls" revival have run dry since Netflix confirmed the show's return in late January. The next two weeks were filled with casting news, but as production got underway in early February, the cast and crew have done well to keep everyone guessing. Then on Saturday, one eagle-eyed fan on the Warner Bros. studio tour noticed a prop on hold for the "wedding" set.
"Gilmore Girls" fan Jordan McKamie snapped a photo of the ornate lamp that was placed on hold for pickup on March 18. Warner Bros. has banned photography on the backlot area, which the show has dressed for its setting of the fictional town, Stars Hollow.
"We took a tour of Warner Bros studio today and saw Stars Hollow but couldn't take pics," McKamie captioned the photo, "but we did see this in the prop storage!! #spoiler!! #wedding?"

Speculation about a wedding for the Gilmore women, Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel), has been much discussed since news of the revival happened. Although the two were engaged in season six, Lorelai and her fiancé Luke (Scott Patterson) broke things off before their June 3 wedding.
A possible wedding for Rory involves a few options with all three of her previous boyfriends - Dean (Jared Padalecki), Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) and Logan (Matt Czuchry) - returning for the revival. New intel from cast member Michael Winters (Taylor Doose), who spoke with the podcast "Gilmore Guys," revealed Padalecki only flew in to shoot for one day, making him the least likely of candidates.
Winters dropped so many spoilers about the revival during his interview that "Gilmore Guys" host Kevin Porter had to bleep out nearly all of what he said. Listed below are a few tidbits left uncensored.
- Winters is only scheduled to appear in the first three episodes - winter, spring summer.
- Dakin Matthews, who played Headmaster Charleston at Chilton, will make a cameo.
- Casting director Mara Casey has a small role in at least one of the four episodes.
- The revival will feature at least two town hall meetings.
The "Gilmore Girls" revival will consist of four 90-minute episodes written and directed by creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband/writing-producing partner Daniel Palladino. Nearly everyone that starred or recurred in the original series that ran on The WB/CW for seven seasons is returning except for Melissa McCarthy, who played Lorelai's best friend Sookie.
"Gilmore Girls: Seasons" will premiere later this year on Netflix.
