LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Some fans of the show Gilmore Girls woke up a little early today.

Both locations of the popular coffee shop Please And Thank You - 800 East Market Street and 2341 Frankfort Avenue - transformed into a Luke's Diner at 7 a.m.

The cafe joined more than 200 coffee shops around the country celebrating the reboot of Gilmore Girls on Netflix. Two locations in Lexington, two in Indianapolis and another in Cincinnati are among the shops also participating in the promotion.

The shop gave away free cups of coffee until noon, but the lines began forming around 5:30 a.m. Sadly, you'll have to wait much longer for the Gilmore Girls release on Netflix. The reboot is due out Nov. 25.

"A lot of people were really excited about the revival, but I'm really excited to find out how many people in Louisville are actually coming to experience the nostalgia of the show," said Allyson Tracy, a Gilmore Girls fan.
