Netflix has played with us about this before, but the possibility of more revival episodes of Gilmore Girls just got more real. According to TVLine, Netflix has been having “very preliminary” talks with Warner Bros. about ordering more episodes of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Um, YES.
Given the cliffhanger ending of the initial revival, show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino would certainly have a lot of explaining to do if A Year in the Life returned for another season. “We hope [it happens],” Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos reportedly told UK’s Press Association. “The worst thing is to wait a couple of years for your favorite show to come back and for it to disappoint you, but [the Palladinos] sure delivered and people were really excited about more. And we have been talking to them about the possibility of that.”
In a Dec. 2016 interview with TVLine, Sherman-Palladino defended her…interesting revival ending. “I always wanted [the story] to end in a Life Repeats Itself kind of way,” she said. “The daughter following in the mother’s footsteps. I always thought that was an interesting way to go, with these women who are so tied to each other and who make slightly different choices, but find themselves in interesting situations together.”
No matter how acceptable AS-P thought her ending was, we feel a little differently. She and husband/executive producer Dan Palladino may be “very tired” because of how quickly AYITL came together, but such is show business, right? Here’s hoping that we get one more trip back to Stars Hollow sometime soon.
