Paul Anka the pup is returning to Stars Hollow.
“Gilmore Girls” fans far and wide have been feasting on the abundant and exciting casting news (all of Rory’s exes will be in attendance!) since the moment it was announced that Netflix would be resurrecting the mother-daughter hit for an additional season. But the latest news out of Stars Hollow, as reported by TVLine, is that Paul Anka the dog is also coming back to the show.
We first met Paul Anka in season 6, when Lorelai adopted him, named him after the famous singer and became best friends with the four-legged guy when she and Rory were feuding and distant.
Paul Anka the dog remained by Lorelai’s side until the show ended, and he will resume his position as Mama’s best friend in the upcoming series revival.
The new season is said to take place over a full calendar year, and in present day, which puts us eight years after we said goodbye to the lovable residents of Stars Hollow. That means Paul Anka will be old and gray, but still as adorable as ever.
We can’t wait!
