Netflix's Gilmore Girls reboot officially has a name!

Are you ready? The new show, which will debut in four 90-minute installments, will be called Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.

Star Lauren Graham made the announcement while appearing on Ellen, telling host Ellen DeGeneres, "I feel so lucky to get to [revisit Gilmore Girls], but it's also been so bizarre because I open the door and we're across the street from you, which wasn't the case before. The set is the same, but we're in a different place. It's like it was yesterday, but also it was not yesterday," she said of shooting the new series.

Then came the big announcement: "I'm here to tell you the title," Graham revealed. "I can tell you the title for the first time! It's four 90-minute episodes and they're Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, so it's called Gilmore Girls: A Year In the Life."

But that's not all! We also have the very first piece of key art from the new show, and it features one of the show's main characters very prominently: a cup of coffee, duh.

The revival was officially announced in January (after months of speculation), when Netflix and creator Amy Sherman-Palladino revealed that Graham, TV daughter Alexis Bledel, TV mom Kelly Bishop and TV true love Scott Patterson had all signed on for the then-untitled project.

In the ensuing months, we've learned that Melissa McCarthy is definitely coming back (after all of that shade and back-and-forth, Sookie St. James is returning!), pretty much every other Stars Hollow resident you loved is also coming back, and newbies joining the cast include Sutton Foster and Graham's other TV daughter, Mae Whitman (Bravermans forever!).

When E! News spoke to Yanic Truesdale, a.k.a. the Dragonfly Inn's resident grumpy concierge Michel, he said that returning to Stars Hollow—a.k.a. the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank—was a little odd at first.

"There's a very strange feeling to it. It's like going back to a house that you grew up in," he revealed. "It's exciting because you have another shot at something that was very meaningful and had impacted a lot of people. It's exciting to have something new to give to the fans!"
