Mild spoilers for seasons 1-7 ahead, read at your own risk.

It’s an exciting week for Gilmore Girls fans around the world as Netflix prepares to release four new installments of the heartwarming fan favorite. More than nine years since the network run of the show ended in 2007, we get the opportunity to catch up with Rory, Lorelai, Emily, Luke, Lane, all the whacky faces of Stars Hollow and, of course, the boyfriends. No matter what “team” you’re on, this promises to be one of the most exciting premiers of all time.

Of course, you want to see Stars Hollow in all its Ultra HD* glory this time around – and today we are happy to announce 4K content from Netflix is now available exclusively for compatible PCs and 2-in-1 devices with Windows 10, including the new Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, premiering November 25th.

Your binge-watching favorites on Netflix are now available in 4K exclusively on compatible PCs and 2-in-1 devices, on Windows 10. Check out the new streaming experience with Microsoft Edge, the only browser that supports Netflix 4K content. If you’re looking for a new Windows 10 device that supports 4K, head over to Microsoft Stores.**

But wait, there’s more! What better way to prepare for this major moment than to re-watch all your old favorites? And since it’s Thanksgiving week for those of us in the US, you might have some downtime on a train, at Grandma’s house or in your childhood bedroom. Make sure you’re making the most of your binge watching experience by streaming your favorite episodes from Netflix on Microsoft Edge. Nothing is worse than your battery dying right at a pivotal moment – what if your screen went dark when Rory sees Jess before Sookie’s wedding? Or right as Logan was about to ask a very important question at Rory’s graduation party? Or, worst case, before you know Luke is “all in”?

When streaming Netflix on Microsoft Edge you can get through at least one more full episode of Gilmore Girls than when streaming on Chrome on battery*** – and you know one episode can be the difference between Chris and Lorelai casually dating and being a married couple.

And now, as I get ready to cozy in for a marathon binge session this week, I leave you with my top twelve must-watch episodes to get ready for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Copper boom!
