‘It’s got to be the right part. It can’t be just a cameo. It’s got to have some meat to it,’ the 55-year-old showrunner told Variety of the prospect back in 2018.

‘And it’s also got to be a time when [Milo] can shave and cut his hair into a 1950s period look. But the reuniting will definitely happen.’

Ventimiglia famously portrayed Jess Mariano, the troubled love-interest of Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel), in 37 episodes of The WB series spanning 2001-2006.

The two-time SAG Award winner then reprised his role for two episodes of Netflix’s 2016 revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
