The Latest Photos of the New ‘Gilmore Girls’ Prove Rory Went to Yale for Nothing

“Gilmore Girls” is back, and it’s looking like Rory Gilmore — the main character played by Alexis Bledel — hasn’t done much in the 9 years since we’ve last seen her.

Entertainment Weekly released an exclusive look at the revival series, and the photos show Rory, who by this time would be a Yale alum, working as a high school teacher. In her hometown, Stars Hollow. And she’s still hanging out with her mom all the time.

Maybe the theme of the show will be that it’s a learning experience.

“You know how you finish college and you’re a few years older and you’re like, ‘I wish I could go do this now ‘cause I would appreciate it so much more and understand it and get more out of it’?” Lauren Graham (who plays Rory’s mother on the show) told EW. “That’s the opportunity I have this with and I appreciate every day that I’m here.”

Check out the photos:

Here’s Rory and her mother maybe auditioning for a role in a musical about their hometown. 


Here’s Rory and mom twinning in the most “I’m turning into my mother” kind of way. 


All that work for Yale, just to pay off student loans as a high school teacher. 


Maybe Melissa McCarthy — who’s recently confirmed her reprisal of her role on the show — will be the one to shake things up. The show will air on Netflix as series of four 90 minute movies.
