If you grew up in the ‘90s, you probably grew up with Lorelei and Rory Gilmore in the quaint little town of Stars Hollow. Sure, you knew that you weren’t really part of Rory and Lane’s clique, but you could dream, right?
And if you haven’t ever watched Gilmore Girls or the revival before, erm… why not?! The only acceptable reasons for not watching the show are:
A. You have lived under a rock for the past 17 years of your life.
B. You still hadn’t got over the fact that Freaks and Geeks ended so you vowed never to watch TV again.
But for us Gilmore Girls fans, when the revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life came onto our Netflix screens last year, we were pretty happy.
When the revival seemed so popular and left off on a cliffhanger (WHO IS THE FATHER?!?!!!), it seemed only fitting that the show had another revival season. Because we needed answers. GG fans joined together and campaigned for new episodes – stat.
But it seems like the prospect of a second revival has been scuppered. And we’re not happy about it. During an event on 9th April 2017, both Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham confirmed that they hadn’t been contacted about the prospect of returning back into the shoes of Rory and Lorelai. This news goes against the rumors we’d been hearing (and made into an even bigger deal in our heads). Just last month, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer had said that he was in ‘very preliminary’ talks with Amy Sherman-Palladino, the creator of Gilmore Girls, about the prospect of a second revival series. But that could literally mean everything.
Nevertheless, us Gilmore Girls fans are ever the optimists, and this news hasn’t dampened our spirits just yet. During the event, Lauren Graham confirmed that she heard about the initial reboot in the news before they’d even been asked to return to the show. So…they might not know of the second reboot just yet. BUT IT COULD POTENTIALLY, MAYBE, IF THEY GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER, PERHAPS BE A SECOND REBOOT.
We can dream.
