The show Gilmore Girls originally ran from the years 2000 to 2007, but it made its huge comeback on Netflix in 2016 as a mini TV series titled Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. The show’s creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino were able to get Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham to reprise their roles as Rory and Lorelai respectively, and they wrote the ending they envisioned for the show before they left at the end of its sixth season. Now there’s more exciting news! Fans and the show’s creators are open to having more episodes from the beloved series.
Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos spoke to the British Press Association and hinted that there is a possibility for more installments to come from the successful revival. In an interview, he was asked about a possible return and he said, “We hope. We obviously loved the success of the show, fans loved how well it was done, it delivered what they hoped.”
“The worst thing is to wait a couple of years for your favorite show to come back and for it to disappoint you but they sure delivered and people were really excited about more and we have been talking to them about the possibility of that,”
Alexis recently opened up about returning for more episodes and she said: “The only thing I can say about a future installment of the show would be that it would be about the story and certainly the timing. We want to tell a great story.”
Milo Ventimiglia, who played Jess on the show, said he would not return for more and said his time on the show has basically run its course.
“If you think about it, I was 24 when I signed on to the show, so that’s, like, 16 years ago. As an actor, you constantly want to evolve. I don’t know if you guys notice, but every [role] that I play, I change my appearance,” he said.
“But I’m constantly trying to evolve and grow and I think when you have a show that is so far in the past, like over a decade in the past, to visit it once, hey, it’s a blast ― you see some old friends, jump into the shoes and the leather jacket of an old character. But then, you’re like, ‘OK, cool. We gave you that last slice of pie. I’m going to go back to this other show I have called This Is Us and the other gigs that I’m working on.’ So, as much as I would love for audiences to have more, it’s also like, guys, just accept what you got and that you got a little bit more, which is awesome. Not everybody gets that.”
