Austin’s Jared Padalecki will return to Stars Hollow (and ‘Gilmore Girls’)

Rise up with fists, Team Dean. Austin’s own Jared Padalecki has officially signed on to Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls” reboot.

E! Online reports that the “Supernatural” star (who played Rory Gilmore’s first love, Dean Forester, in the show’s original run on The WB) will participate in the revival, which is currently in production. This would be exciting news for Stars Hollow fans on a normal day. But it’s especially juicy because the two actors who played Rory’s other main flames — Milo Ventimiglia (aka Jess) and Matt Czuchry (aka Logan) — have also joined the cast. We are positively salivating at the dramatic possibilities.

Padalecki, who reportedly lives in Austin with his family, is a common sight around town, including at ACL Fest.

But back to Stars Hollow. Expect more of this:
