Photo Flash: Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, and the GILMORE GIRLS Cast Reunite

The ATX TV Festival looked very similar to a Stars Hollow town meeting this weekend when the cast of GILMORE GIRLS reunited for a special panel on the show. Below, check out photos of Lorelai and Rory, played by Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, respectively, along with show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, and the rest of the cast!

Gilmore Girls is an American comedy-drama series created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, starring Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel. On October 5, 2000, the series debuted on the WB to widespread critical acclaim and remained a tent-pole to the WB until it was canceled in its seventh season, ending on May 15, 2007 on the CW.

The show follows single mother Lorelai Gilmore (Graham) and her daughter, also named Lorelai but who prefers to be called Rory (Bledel), living in the fictional town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut. The town is filled with colorful characters and is located approximately 30 minutes from Hartford, Connecticut. The show's pilot states the proximity to Hartford. Ambition, education, and work constitute part of the series' central concerns, telling Lorelai's story from pregnant teen RUNAWAY and high school dropout to co-owner and manager of the Dragonfly Inn. Rory's transition from public school to the prestigious Chilton is similarly followed, exploring her ambition to study at an Ivy League college and to become a foreign correspondent. The show's social commentary manifests most clearly in Lorelai's difficult relationship with her wealthy, appearance-obsessed parents, Emily and Richard Gilmore, and in the interactions between the students at Chilton, and later, Yale University.

Gilmore Girls is known for its fast-paced dialogue filled with pop-culture references. The show earned several award nominations, winning one Emmy Award. It was also critically acclaimed placing No. 32 on Entertainment Weekly‍‍ '?‍s "New TV Classics" list, and was listed as one of Time magazine's "All-TIME 100 TV Shows" in 2007.
