LOS ANGELES, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- On the anniversary of the show's premiere, Gilmore Girls released a behind-the-scenes featurette with interviews from the show's cast as they reminisce on the first seven seasons and look ahead to Netflix's new episodes.

"The very first scene that I did, the very first day I was on set, and I just thought, 'this is gonna work,'" said Scott Patterson, who plays Luke Danes.

The cast is reuniting for Netflix's reboot of the series, which will premiere on the streaming site on Nov. 25.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will feature four 90-minute episodes which take place during the present day over each of the four seasons.

"It's a great group of people and an amazing group of actors," said Alexis Bledel, who is reprising her role as Rory Gilmore. "Every role is very thoughtfully cast."

"We never could've imagined that we'd get a chance to come back," she added.
