Some "Gilmore Girls" fans were in for more than just a coffee treat last Wednesday after some 200 cafes around the U.S. metamorphosed into a familiar sight - the Luke's Diner.
The unexpected transformation of these coffee shops was all part of the promotional scheme for the upcoming Netflix Revival of the hit comedy-drama series. The show features Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel (Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, respectively) who also happen to be coffee junkies themselves.
Earlier this year, Netflix announced that they would be bringing back "Gilmore Girls" for another run at the streaming site.

It was also confirmed that apart from the two actresses, other fan favorites from the show will return to reprise their roles.
The mother and daughter tandem is just two of the colorful characters in the series who call the fictitious Stars Hollow town home. Their place is located in the state of Connecticut and about a half an hour drive from the capital city, Hartford. The town, by the way, has its very own website now.
Fans will be thrilled to know that most of the show's beloved characters, whom they have come to grow fond of in the past seven seasons over at The WB and The CW, will be back. Also returning to the mix are Scott Patterson (Luke), Kelly Bishop (Emily), Sean Gunn (Kirk), Keiko Agena (Lane), Melissa McCarthy (Sookie), Liza Weil (Paris), and Yanic Truesdale (Michel Gerard).
Fans, meanwhile, can look forward to meeting the new characters, like the Lane's twins, Jim, Damon, Paul, and Dwayne; and how they will impact the lives of the townsfolk.
What to Expect from the Reunion
The lives of the three-generation Gilmore ladies, with the inclusion of Bishop's character, will be on the cusp as they try to cope up with the tides of change, and the fun and drama within their relationships.
The reunion entitled, "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life" will center on what changed in the lives of Rory and Lorelai eight years after. The daughter will try to figure out her future as her mom works on her own, especially in her relationship with Luke.
Fans will also see how the show would go about the death of actor Edward Herrmann, who is known for his role as Richard Gilmore. The revival, which will premiere on Nov. 25, will have four episodes that will run for 1.5 hours each.
Graham admits that she's having butterflies in her stomach with just the thought of how well the fans are going to receive the Netflix's newest offering. But, the 49-year-old actress found solace in the fact that the team behind the series worked hard to deliver.
"I'm nervous because the expectation is so high," she told People. "But my expectation of myself was very high doing them, too, and I feel like we did what we wanted to do. I just hope fans feel that!"
