Are the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life set to return for a second instalment?
The long-awaited four part revival of the cult drama comedy series, Gilmore Girls was shown on Netflix last November 2016. Nearly 10 years after the finale of the original series, the new series will give the fans a look on the lives of the mother-daughter duo, Lorelai and Rory Gilmore including everyone in Stars Hallow.
Netflix are under “very preliminary talks” to continue the much loved series from the early 2000. Last year Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life sent new waves of subscribers for the giant streaming platform, a 7.05 Million in the fourth quarter of 2016.
It’s only been months since the series was released on Netflix, but fans are already hungry for more! Are these “talks” an almost 100% confirmation for a second season? Not yet though.
Some of the show’s main cast still has projects and shows on the way and they are not even called yet to discuss about another season. Although it’s not confirmed yet, it’s most possible that a big obstacle in making the second season happen is the schedule of the cast.
Lauren Graham, the feisty and lovable Lorelai, has two TV shows lined up. She will be starring in Fox’s new comedy pilot, Linda from HR, and a recurring role on the upcoming ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
For Alexis Bledel, the adorable Rory whom almost girls could relate to joins Hulu’s series The Handmaid’s Tale. Bledel commented on the possibility of another season. She said in an interview in Entertainment Weekly, “It all depends on the story.” She added, “And I don’t know, I feel so grateful to get to do [Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life] that I’m not even looking forward necessarily at the prosepect of doing more. I also feel like it’s such a special story that I don’t want to exploit it, or do too much, you know?”
NBC’s This Is Us lead actor, Milo Ventimiglia is still wrapped up with the ongoing series with a success while Jared Padalecki still hunts down in the CW’s Supernatural. The one who stayed with the revival as one of Rory’s suitors is Matt Czuchry.
Creators and writers, Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino haven’t said anything yet on the future of the cult series since they are still busy with the new upcoming series by Amazon, The Marvelous Maisel. As their schedule is still on track, it’s still unclear whether the Palladino partners would be willing to split time between two shows.
The final four words said on the show brought closure to the whole series. But it’s still a cliffhanger. There’s still a whole new plot to begin with if the show would continue. The news from Rory leaves a batch of new episodes ready for another season, don’t you think?
Watching Lorelai and Rory together and the whole cast in Stars Hollow felt like home or that cold Christmas eve with a cup of hot coco warming up your hands. Continuing to watch Gilmore Girls will always feel like that to women like me and probably some men too. Even if they say it would hurt and exploit the series, fans would always follow, believe and love the Gilmore Girls.
