When you watch the anxiously awaited new season of Gilmore Girls on Netflix, you'll be watching it in a whole new way. The revival series will take place in four long episodes instead of several short ones, so it'll be like watching a few movies instead of the original series.

Lauren Graham spilled the beans on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which films on the same lot as Gilmore Girls. "It's been the most incredible experience," she said. "I cry trying to talk about it because I feel so lucky to get to do it."

The show will be called Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, and it will consist of four 90-minute episodes. Each episode will correspond with a season, so we'll get to see Stars Hollow in winter, spring, summer, and fall. Graham said they're almost done filming the season, but Netflix hasn't announced a release date yet.

Here's the new promo poster for the show, which (of course) features a cup of hot coffee:
