LOS ANGELES, May 20 (UPI) -- Gilmore Girls star Lauren Graham was the first to reveal the revival's title Thursday.

The 49-year-old actress confirmed the name on social media after announcing the title on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, scheduled to air Monday.

"Our title! Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. More news to come on Monday's @TheEllenShow," she wrote, including seasonal emojis of a snowman, flowers and leaves.

The Gilmore Girls revival will premiere on Netflix later this year. The series will consist of four 90-minute episodes, which Graham called Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, hence the revival's title.

"First of all, it's been the most incredible experience. I cry trying to talk about it because I feel so lucky to get to do it," Graham said of returning to the show. The series filmed across from Ellen and finished production last week.

"[It's] so bizarre because I open the door and we're across the street from you, which wasn't the case before," she told DeGeneres. "The set is the same, but we're in a different place. So it's like it was yesterday, but also it was not yesterday."

The original Gilmore Girls had a seven-season run on The WB/CW from 2000 to 2007. Netflix confirmed plans to revive the series in February after months of rumors about a potential movie or revival.

"I love this character so much," Graham said of her character, Lorelai Gilmore. "I have the same feeling I had when I first opened that script, which was just such a deep connection. To get to do it again -- who would have imagined?"

Alexis Bledel will also return as Rory Gilmore, with Kelly Bishop as Emily Gilmore and Scott Patterson as Luke Danes. Melissa McCarthy recently confirmed she will reprise Sookie St. James after uncertainty about her involvement.
