It has been a few weeks since we've finally heard the final four words and said goodbye to Stars Hollow once again. And, while it may not have been exactly what we were expecting, it gave us the best cameos I've ever seen.

It was no surprise to see so many new characters in this revival, especially those who were previously announced, but it was still amazing to see Stars Hollow grow more than ever before.

Certain actors from previous shows made an appearance, while other surprise guests came back for the return. Here are some of the cameos that you might've missed.

Bunheads Reunion

It's no surprise to see that Amy Sherman-Palladino continues to use some of the same actors in her shows. We previously saw this on Bunheads, especially with the inclusion of Kelly Bishop, who played Fanny Flowers on Bunheads and Emily Gilmore on Gilmore Girls, but she wasn't the only one who made a connection between the two shows.

Best cameos HelloGiggles

As previously announced, Sutton Foster, who played Michelle Simms on Bunheads, played Violet in the revival, an actress who played the female lead in Stars Hollow: The Musical on the show.

Best cameos Netflix

The Affair star Julia Goldani Telles, who played Sasha Torres on Bunheads, played Sandee, an editor who wanted Rory to join her as a writer for her website.

Bailey De Young, who played Ginny Thompson on Bunheads and recently starred as Lauren Cooper on Faking It, played Heidi, one of the members of the Thirty-Something Gang in the revival.

Rounding out the Bunheads reunion was Stacey Oristano, who played Truly Stone on the ABC Family show, played Allie, one of the women also taking part on the Wild trail trip.

The Bravermans Meet The Gilmores

While it wasn't surprising to see the Bunheads cast members taking over Stars Hollow, it was a nice surprise to see members of the Braverman family from Parenthood, which Lauren Graham also starred in as Sarah Braverman, join in on the fun.

Peter Krause, who is currently starring on The Catch and played Adam Braverman on Parenthood, played one of the park rangers in the fourth episode. He is also currently in a relationship with Graham.

Two-time Tony Award winner and Smash star Christian Borle also stopped by to play Carl, the male star of the Stars Hollow musical opposite Foster.

Best cameos The Interrobang

Moving into the recording world, Paul Anka came back to play himself in another one of Lorelai's dreams.

Best cameos Simply Music

Carole King came back to play Sophie and didn't miss a beat when she played her hit song, "I Feel the Earth Move" -- which the other members of the Stars Hollow musical advisory committee didn't seem so fond of. Her daughter, Louise Goffin, played the female town troubadour in a small cameo.
