Multiple sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter that the Internet streaming service's executives are in negotiations with series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino to reboot the programme, with its stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel also on board.

Reports suggest the revival will consist of four 90-minute episodes/mini-movies, and actors Kelly Bishop and Scott Patterson are also expected back for the new installment.

Gilmore Girls, which ended its seven-season run in 2007, was helmed by Sherman-Palladino until 2006, when she exited following a contract dispute with Warner Bros. bosses.

During the cast reunion at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas earlier this year (15), Sherman-Palladino said she would be open to returning to the show, if the timing was right.

"It would have to be the right everything - the right format, the right timing," she said. "If it ever happened, I promise we'll do it correctly."

News of the Gilmore Girls revival comes hours after Lauren Graham confirmed she is reuniting with another onscreen daughter, Mae Whitman, whom she starred with in U.S. drama Parenthood.

Graham is set to adapt authors Jessica Morgan and Heather Cocks' novel The Royal We into a movie for CBS Films. Graham will pen the script while Whitman will star, and both are set to produce.

The Royal We mirrors the real-life of courtship of Kate Middleton and Prince William, featuring an American girl who falls in love with a fellow university student at Oxford in England.
