Strong will reprise the role of Doyle, the former editor of the Yale Daily News and Paris' boyfriend. We can only hope that this casting means that Doyle and Paris have stayed together, since the Netflix revival picks up nearly 10 years since we last saw the couple.
Since Gilmore Girls, Strong has appeared on Mad Men, Girls and Justified. But his most famous recent work has been behind the camera: He created the hit Fox drama Empire, and wrote The Butler, Game Change and Recount.
Strong is far from the only familiar face returning for the revival. In fact, it would be quicker to list the stars who won't be returning (Melissa McCarthy,Chad Michael Murray). But if you really need to full list of returning stars, here you go:
Alexis Bledel (Rory) Lauren Graham (Lorelai), Jared Padalecki (Dean), David Sutcliffe (Christopher), Milo Ventimiglia (Jess), Matt Czuchry (Logan), Liza Weil (Paris), Kelly Bishop (Emily), Sean Gunn (Kirk), Scott Patterson (Luke), Keiko Agena (Lane) and Yanic Truesdale (Michel) will all return. Sutton Foster, who starred on Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino's short-lived series Bunheads has also joined the cast in an unknown role.
Netflix has yet to announced a premiere date for the four-part revival.
