Get out your coffee and Pop Tarts—scratch that, a week’s worth of coffee and Pop Tarts—the ultimate Gilmore Girls marathon is upon us.

Up will air GilMORE the Merrier Binge-A-Thon, a 24-hour a day, 153-hour marathon of all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls from November 18-25, ending just in time for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life‘s Netflix premiere. Oy, with the binging.

Sean Gunn, Kirk to Gilmore Girls fans, will host the marathon. And this isn’t your normal marathon. Every episode will feature trivia pop-ups and commentary by the Gilmore Guys, the popular podcast hosts, and there will be a chance to win prizes throughout the week.

“As huge Gilmore Girls fans ourselves, we are thrilled to bring our audience the ultimate binge event,” Amy Winter, executive vice president and general manager of Up, said in a statement. “To have Sean host the viewing house as his quirky and beloved character, Kirk Gleason, ensures that we will bring fans all the fun tips, trivia and Gilmore lore with deadpan delivery. We’re thrilled to have Stars Hollow’s ‘man of a thousand jobs,’ add this one to his list.”
