Stars Hollow's resident bad boy – and runaway – Jess Mariano is back.

Milo Ventimiglia will reprise his role in the four-episode Gilmore Girls revival, Netflix confirmed Wednesday.

The actor who played Rory's (Alexis Bledel)'s next boyfriend, playboy media mogul with a heart of gold Logan Huntzberger (Matt Czuchry), has also signed on, leaving only high school sweetheart Dean Forster (Jared Padalecki) out of the mix ... for now.

Back in June, Ventimiglia, 38, had a hard time picking his favorite out of Rory's young loves.



"I'm going to say Jess, but I love Dean. Mostly because I love Jared, but at the same time, in the same breath, I can't say I don't love Matty, because I love Matty, but Logan was a d---," he told PEOPLE at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas, laughing. "I think Rory, she had some wild ones. She had a good range of romantic relationships."


Any shippers shouldn't hold out hope for an immediate reconciliation, though: "She's ... single in the sense that she's not married," creator Amy Sherman-Palladino recently told TVLine of Rory's relationship status. "But she's dating like any young woman with that face would be."

The miniseries' title and premiere date have yet to be announced.
