** The new executive producer who came on had some odd baggage, having been slapped with a restraining order by Heidi Klum (his co-worker when he wrote on ''SpinCity'') after he wrote a bizarre and offensive one man play performed in New York about how he'd [[StalkerWithACrush really, really, really like to sleep with her]], after which he was involuntarily committed for a spell by his father. Thankfully he left the Girls alone...physically. Characteristically however...

* PromotedFangirl: [[http://www.ew.com/article/2016/03/21/gilmore-girls-sutton-foster-lauren-graham Sutton Foster]] was a huge fan of the show and naturally, after working with Amy Sherman-Palladino on ''Series/Bunheads'', she jumped at the chance to have a role in the Netflix revival. And after filming a scene with Lauren Graham, she burst into tears.

** Hal Douglas, the voice of the WB, didn't move over to the CW, thus the show lost their authoritative FatherFigure promo voice, replaced with an unknown voiceover artist who you saw more describing the wacky hi-jinks of the earlier double-shot of ''{{Everybody Loves Raymond}}'' (tonight at 6:30 on [=CW67!=]) than working as the Danny Dark of the fifth network. It also sadly proved that the brain trust at {{UPN}} rather than the WB was in charge and didn't know what to do with a successful series.
** {{Nickelback}} playing in the season seven promo teasing the infamous 'Wedding in Paris' episode. Nickelback is a band that would never go near Lane or Rory's CD players, and Top 40 music was only mentioned in derision or as a necessary evil in the background of dance scenes during the AS-P era.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Jonathan Levinson]] is the editor for the Yale Daily News, becomes Paris's boyfriend, and is later an Emmy winner for adapting the book ''Literature/GameChange'' into an HBO film.
** Those who haven't seen the show are likeliest to recognize Lorelai as [[Film/{{Parenthood}} Sarah Braverman]], Sookie as [[Film/{{Bridesmaids}} Megan]] and [[Film/MikeAndMolly Molly]], Rory as [[Film/MadMen Pete Campbell's lover]] and Paris as [[Series/HowToGetAwayWithMurder Bonnie Winterbottom]].
** Rory's three ex-boyfriends are [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Sam Winchester]], [[Series/{{Heroes}} Peter Petrelli]], and [[Series/TheGoodWife Cary Agos]]. [[OneTreeHill Lucas Scott]] expressed some interest in her before he got sent off to military school.
** And her grandmother once set her up with [[Series/{{VeronicaMars}} Duncan Kane]].
** Lane didn't do quite as well - she only dated [[Series/TheOC Seth Cohen]] and [[TrueBlood Terry]].
** [[AustinPowers Basil Exposition]] is one of the professors at Yale, who had Paris as his last love ([[DeathBySex but his death was not caused by sex]], as she will remind you quite vocally).
** The girl Jess dated before Rory would go on to make it to the end of ''Survivor'' : Gabon (and make more disastrous choices in men).
** Emily got some flattering attention from BarneyMiller when she went to a spa; Lorelai made sure to tease her about it the rest of the night.
** Emily is [[DirtyDancing Baby's mother]] and was also in the original production of AChorusLine.
** Lorelai went to a Bowie concert with [[MadMen Don Draper]]. Making it very weird that Rory later had an affair with [[MadMen Pete Campbell]].
** Lorelai also briefly dated [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Bella Swan's dad]], who she had previously known as her boyfriend in the indie rock film ''Dill Scallion'' where he played the title role.
** The {{Superman}} of ''Film/SupermanReturns'' hit on Rory and the Chilton Three at a Bangles concert.
** [[Series/{{Glee}} Sue Sylvester]] gets verbally belittled by Emily in an early episode. Yes, you read that right.
** [[Series/{{Glee}} Brad]] played the piano at Rory's college graduation party hosted by her grandparents.
** Francine knows how to push the buttons of Paris and Rory, which is appropriate as she was the [[Film/TheRageCarrie2 second Carrie]] (though with much less blood and gore).
** [[Series/SwitchedAtBirth Bay Kennish]] apparently had some prior experience finding her real father.
** [[Series/TwentyFour Chloe O'Brian]] appeared twice: first in a film by Kirk, and later as a potential replacement for the Stars Hollow troubadour.
** Before he went to Greendale, [[Series/{{Community}} Abed]] worked in the background of the Yale Daily News.
** Lucy went on to [[Series/BreakingBad date a New Mexico meth cooker]] before becoming [[DontTrustTheBinApartment23 the bitch in Apartment 23.]]
** Christopher's mother, Rory's grandmother, is [[Series/{{Heroes}} Angela Petrelli]]. One of her boyfriends is Peter Petrelli. Ewww.
** [[Series/AllMyChildren Josh Madden]]/[[Series/RizzoliAndIsles Tommy Rizzoli]] tried to hook up with Rory on Spring Break, but ruined his shot when he was too happy to see Paris kiss Rory in a club to "truly experience spring break".
** Michel's mother was played by the [[TheOtherDarrin first]] [[Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir Aunt Vivian]].
** ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' fans should recognize Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson) as Jackson's brother Beau in a handful of episodes.
** [[VictoriaJustice Tori]] [[Series/{{Victorious}} Vega]] attended a [[Literature/{{Thelordoftherings}} Lord of the Rings]] party catered by Lorelai and Sookie.
** Richard made something of a career playing UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt in several films (including the 1982 version of ''Annie''.
** Gil used to be in SkidRow!
** [[Series/DesperateHousewives Mary Alice]] got a crush on Luke in a season 2 episode, and later it turns out he likes to visit a restaurant driven by Karen [=McCluskey=].
** Remember how [[Film/HighSchoolMusical Taylor McKessie]] will attend Yale after graduating from East High? She had apparently attended there before, working in Yale Daily News.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Kathleen Wilhoite, who plays Jess's mother Liz, is also the voice of ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn''.
** In addition to Edward Herrmann frequently portraying UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt; Herrmann was also frequent heard (and occasionally seen) in commercials for Dodge vehicles during TheNineties.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Sookie was played by Alex Borstein in the unaired pilot, but she couldn't dedicate her time to the series proper because of her commitments to ''Series/{{MADtv}}''.

And if she had taken the part, since Jackson was played by her real-life husband, it would have been a case of RealLifeRelative as well.
