Apparently, when Netflix announced yesterday that Milo Ventimiglia’s Jess Mariano would be returning for the Gilmore Girls revival, it left out the fact that his appearance was actually part of a twisted, Faustian bargain. Sure, Gilmore Girls fans are getting more of Jess, the lovable bad boy who was basically the best, but the thing about Faustian bargains is that there’s always a downside. In this case, that downside is Jared Padalecki, whose aggressively dull Dean Forester will also be appearing Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival. That means all three of the main boyfriends that Alexis Bledel’s Rory dated in the show will be returning, as Netflix announced earlier this month that Matt Czuchry’s Logan would be stopping by as well.
This all comes from Variety, which also reports that David Sutcliffe will be reprising his role as Christopher, Rory’s similarly dull father. Danny Strong, who played the boyfriend of Liza Weil’s Paris, will also make an appearance. With that, an appearance from pretty much every Gilmore Girls character has been confirmed—except, of course, for Melissa McCarthy’s Sookie.
