Since the Gilmore Girls 4-part revival Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life aired on Netflix back in 2016, there’s been a lot of talk over whether we’d see more of Lorelai, Rory, Luke and the rest of the Stars Hollow gang ever again.
While Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos has previously said that the streaming service hoped there would be more instalments, adding that he’d spoken to series creators / writers / producers Daniel Palladino and Amy Sherman-Palladino “about the possibility of that”, series star Lauren Graham has weighed in this week.
During a speaking engagement at 92Y in New York (with her other on-screen daughter, Mae Whitman from Parenthood), Graham – who obviously played single mum Lorelai in the series – talked about the revival, saying: “I feel very satisfied. This always felt like a special, a limited series. I do think that’s where it ends.”
Fans of the show will note that it ended on a cliffhanger of sorts, with Rory telling Lorelai “I’m pregnant” in the very last shot of the final episode. It means we’re all dying to know several things, such as a) who is the father (it’s cleeeearly Logan, even though I wished it were Jess) b) how will Rory’s life as a mum play out and c) is Lorelai the hottest grandma in the history of television?
If Graham is right, then we will never, ever find out – which is kinda poetic, but also I hate it and I’m sad.
