Netflix have reportedly signed a deal with Warner Bros for the revival which will be written by the series creator Amy Sherman Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino.

Sources also reveal it will broadcast as four 90-minute mini movies

Key cast members are also reportedly on board including Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop and Scott Patterson.

The series ran from 2000 to 2006 on the (now defunct) WB network before it moved to The CW in 2006 for its final season. 

Amy Sherman Palladino had departed the show prior that move due to a dispute with Warner and has been vocal about not getting to end the show the way she had wanted.

Netflix has previously announced plans to reignite the runs of Arrested Development, Wet Hot American Summer, and Full House.

The streaming site has yet to confirm the reports.
