After nine years of patiently waiting to find out where Rory and Lorelai have ended up, Netflix has finally released the first trailer for The Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, a new four-part revival series airing November 25.

The trailer finds the mother-daughter duo back, of course, in Stars Hollow after what seems like some time away. Rory is somehow flitting around unable to find a job after graduating from Yale, spending her time traveling the world, and catching up with old flames like Jess, Logan, and even brooding old Dean. Lorelai seems comfortable at home, still boasting a fridge full of frozen tacos and old leftovers.

As for Emily, she's taking the loss of Richard—the family patriarch portrayed by actor Edward Herrmann, who died in 2014—so hard that she's gotten rid of most of her belongings and traded in her fancy outfits for a T-shirt and jeans.

The trailer gets us caught up with a lot of supporting characters, too. Taylor is up to his town meeting antics; Sookie is back creating some kind of mess in the kitchen; Luke, by Lorelai's side, seems less grumpy than usual; Kirk makes an appearance as a dinner guest at Emily and Richard's table; Michel is still acting like a diva at the inn; and Stars Hollow itself looks just as charming as ever.

Check out the trailer above, try not to tear up, and watch the special coming to Netflix on November 25.
