It's been a few months since the Gilmore Girls revival finally made it back to TV. While some people were more enthusiastic about the return to Stars Hollow than others, the episodes overall did good business for Netflix, and recently Netflix head honcho Ted Sarandos said the service is currently in talks to bring Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life back for another round. Here's what he had to say:
We hope [there are more installments]. 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.
Speaking with the U.K. press association, Ted Sarandos mentioned that Netflix has been in talks to create another installation of Gilmore Girls. Clearly, from what he is saying, nothing has gotten off of the ground, yet, but per THR, the subscription streaming service seems incredibly hopeful that more episodes will eventually make their way onto the small screen. That should prove to be a boon for fans, as some fans were unhappy that Gilmore Girls ended on a cliffhanger that -- spoiler! -- saw Rory end up pregnant and in a situation not dissimilar to what happened to her mother, although she is much older. There are likely many fans who would like to see what comes next.
Regardless, it will ultimately be up to the cast's schedules, as well as the general opinions of show creators Amy Palladino and her husband Dan Palladino, to decide whether or not the series will be able to return. Daniel Palladino has been cautiously optimistic, noting "it's a new world out there" in TV. Lauren Graham has been less optimistic, noting that the revival was exactly the length it was meant to be, which mirrors Amy Sherman-Palladino, who had always stated that she knew what the final four words of the series would be. (They ended up being Rory confirming she was pregnant.)
It should be noted that Milo Ventimiglia is currently on NBC's popular series This is Us, which has already been renewed for Season 2. Lauren Graham also recently joined a Fox pilot called Linda From HR, and if that comedy gets a pick-up next season, it would make it a lot harder for Gilmore Girls to film another set of episodes.
