Okay, first – look, we have exciting new (Canadian exclusive!) posters for the Gilmore Girls sorta-sequel, premiering on Netflix November 25!
Second, OMG we also have never-before-revealed plot details of what's going down in the four 90-minute episodes!
In a release accompanying the photos, Netflix very casualllllly shares this little blurb about where we find our favourite Stars Hollow-ians, 9 years after the first series ended.
"...Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life finds each of our leading ladies at a major crossroad: Lorelai’s relationship with Luke is at an unnerving standstill; Rory’s budding journalism career in New York has stalled before it's even begun; and Emily’s world is turned upside down following the untimely passing of her beloved husband, Richard."
Take a moment to scroll through these posters (organised according to the four seasons, aka 'winter, spring, summer or fallllll, all you have to do is call'), digest, reread and come find us in the comment section to share how you're processing all this.

“I got you Bae.”
Cher is our favourite non-grown-up grown-up. (Check out her emoji-filled Twitter feed; it's the best.) James Corden obviously feels the same way, so he invited her onto The Late Late Show to sing her classic song “I Got You Babe” – with brand-new lyrics for the under-30 set.
With mentions of swiping on Tinder, sending nudes, and making things Facebook “offish," this may be the perfect millennial love song.
She talks Kate Moss, pink hair and keeping it natural.
"I’ve dyed my hair several different colours, which is part of the fun of growing up. My hair was purple, pink, blue, black, white – every colour! I pretty much destroyed it for a while.”
“Like everyone in the ’90s, I overplucked my eyebrows – even though lots of wise people told me to stop. I was convinced that if I plucked them enough, I would look like Kate Moss. That was so sadly untrue.” [Laughs]
“I always wear a little Revlon ColorStay Foundation; sometimes I mix it with my moisturizer. And I’ll use a little concealer and then mascara. I let my hair dry naturally. Maybe I’ll put some smoothing oil on the ends. I don’t really have colour in my hair right now, so it doesn’t need as much at the moment.”
“I often work with makeup artist Mélanie Inglessis, and we joke that she gives me a nose job every time she does my makeup. It’s really all about contouring. But that’s something I rarely try on my own. I trust the experts; I just like to sit and chill out. But I have learned that it’s really important to blend, blend, blend and know the right shades for your skin tone.”
"Revlon Ultimate All-in-One Mascara does all the different jobs I need it to do at once,” says Wilde, global brand ambassador for Revlon. Revlon Ultimate All-in-One Mascara ($12), at walmart.com.

This breakout online fashion community is merging commerce with crowdsourcing.
Here’s what you need to know about Awaytomars, the game-changing, industry-disrupting online fashion community based in London: It’s a crowdsourcing platform that allows anyone, anywhere, to have a hand in making clothes. To start, create an account and upload a sketch of your design. The site’s fellow users provide feedback, share ideas on a communal digital mood board and tweak the original version. The ideas that receive the most community engagement go into production. The result is a globally designed collection with input from over 400 designers. “Fashion hasn’t had any major changes over the past 30 or 40 years,” says founder Alfredo Orobio. “We want to give young talent from all over the world the opportunity to design and experience the industry.” Awaytomars puts out two “co-created” collections a year. You can shop the latest one, inspired by raw materials like stone and metal, on awaytomars.com or dream big and propose an idea of your own.
Next up? Awaytomars is working with Google to develop a 3-D design tool to make the creative process more hands-on for its international user base. Although this tool is in the early stages, it’s safe to say that the future is (almost) here.
