The long-awaited Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life arrived on Netflix on Friday night and set us up for a solid weekend of comfort eating and binge watching. 


Those who’ve finished the new season – and a big ol’ spoiler warning obviously applies – will know that the fourth episode ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, wth Rory Gilmore‘s big annoucement that she’s pregnant. 

On the one hand, that’s a pretty great ending, because it brings the entire show full circle. On the other, it raises a lot of quesstions, like who the father is, and what the hell Rory will do next?
Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has long said that she had the ending in mind since the very beginning of the show, and that she always knew what the last four words would be
Now they’ve been spoken, is there hope for any new episodes? Based on an interview that Sheman-Palladino recengly gave to The Hollywood Reporter, the idea’s definitely not off the table. She said:

“We really had a very specific journey in our minds and we fulfilled the journey. So to us, this is the piece that we wanted to do. And the whole thought about, is there more, is there more, is there more – this has to go out into the universe now. We’ve got to put this to bed. And then whatever happens, happens.”

Scott Patterson, who plays Luke in the show, said that he’d be keen to do more in an interview with the same publication earlier this year:

“It’d be nice to do it every year. Maybe every two years, do a three-month thing, do four more chapters. It was easy to do. It was fun. It was really rewarding and people got a sense that if this was going to be the last thing that we now have some closure.”
Long story short, we may yet be checking in with the Stars Hollow gang again a few years down the line.
