With news that all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls are coming to Netflix on October 1, we thought now made a great time to walk down Stars Hollow main street, aka Memory Lane.

Where are our favorite Gilmore girls these days? What about their many colorful friends? Take a look at the cast of Gilmore Girls then and now.

While many residents of Stars Hollow, Conn., have stayed small time and/or done little in the business since the show ended, a few used Gilmore Girls to launch wildly successful careers. 

Most notably? Funny girl Melissa McCarthy.

Jared Padalecki earned hot guy status and a cult following as Sam Winchester on Supernatural while Milo Ventimiglia developed superpowers for Heroes.


Alexis Bledel married Vincent Kartheiser recently, while Lauren Graham continued playing a single mom as Sarah Braverman on Parenthood.

And then there’s Scott Patterson, who lists "sometimes dog trainer" on his Twitter bio. Hey, they can’t all be winners, right?

If you just can’t wait for Lorelai and Rory to hit Netflix streaming, you can always watch Gilmore Girls online at TV Fanatic.
