Gilmore Girls began airing on the WB in 2000. With Chad Michael Murray and Jared Padalecki both having starred in it - (Murray leaving in 2001 for a role on the WB's Dawson's Creek) - it is tangentially related to CW RPS fandom. Adam Brody also guest starred for a time, leaving toward the end of season three to "go to college in California".
A revival four-episode miniseries was released to Netflix in November 2016.
The show focuses on the lives of Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter, Rory Gilmore. Lorelai, who became pregnant at 16, rebelled against her controlling parents and left home to raise her daughter on her own. 16-year-old Rory and 32-year-old Lorelai live in the quaint town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut, and the town's residents, along with Lorelai's parents (Richard and Emily), make up the supporting cast. The show lasted for 7 seasons, the last of which was produced without its creator.
