Kelly Bishop Will Guest Star On 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' & She Looks Fabulous

What's better than one Gilmore Girls fave appearing on Season 4 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel? Two Gilmore Girls faves appearing on Season 4 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. On Tuesday, June 29, it was announced that Milo Ventimiglia isn't the only Stars Hallow resident heading over to the Amazon Prime show. Emily Gilmore herself, Kelly Bishop, will also be guest starring on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel's new season.

Details of her character remain under wraps, but the show teased her arrival with a video of Bishop in character, walking to set. "If looks could kill," the show wrote on Twitter, suggesting Bishop might be more foe than friend. It's hard to say who she might be playing based on the wardrobe alone — a brightly colored stripped coat paired with matching gloves and an elegant burgundy hat. She also makes sure to give the camera her classic Emily Gilmore look of disapproval as she struts by.

The big question, of course, besides who she's playing, is will she cross paths with her old Gilmore Girls co-star? Ventimiglia has already been spotted on the set of Season 4, playing what appears to be a love interest for Midge. And it would be fun to see him finally get to have a real onscreen relationship with Bishop, since the two barely ever got to share scenes on Gilmore Girls (save that one memorable Friday Night Dinner). Maybe they could even be related on Maisel, giving fans a new kind of weird, twisted, fan fiction world to play in. (I'm also hoping Bishop's character will go toe-to-toe with Midge's mom, Rose, because, put simply, that's just something I would like to see before I die.)
