If, like us, you grew up eagerly following the lives of Rory and Lorelai Gilmore, then you'll be thrilled to hear that Gilmore Girls could be getting yet another reboot.

Loading…

Yep, after a brief four part Netflix comeback in 2016, there's potential for the popular comedy-drama series to return for a second time, according to its co-creator Amy Sherman-Palladino.

While Amy refused to categorically commit to a Gilmore Girls revival, she certainly gave us some fresh hope recently, when quizzed on demand for its return.

Speaking of the future of the show, starring Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, four years on, Amy initially told Vogue: "We didn't go in there with any intention of wanting to do more.

"There were no discussions between us and Warners or us and Netflix of having anymore.

"We all went through this journey thinking we just wanted to make it a very special event."

However, she went on to offer a glimmer of fresh hope when talking to Entertainment Tonight, saying: "You know, it's the kind of thing where we hadn't planned on doing the Netflix movies... never say never".

We're taking that as a yes, then.

Marvellous Mrs Maisel co-creator Amy added that if the show was to return, she would want the original cast to reprise their roles with it.

She added: "It would just have to be the right time for everybody. 'Cause it was [in 2016]."

Gilmore Girls was set in Stars Hollow, Connecticut, and followed Rory and Lorelai's close mother-daughter relationship - which at times even seemed more sisterly.

One key theme throughout the series was Rory's ambition to attend an Ivy League college and become a journalist, while Loralei's longing to open her own inn with best friend Sookie (Melissa McCarthy) was also central.

Of course, as is with any rom-com, Loralei's tight relationship with local diner owner Luke Danes (Scott Patterson) and Rory's romantic escapades through her school years also a featured heavily.

And Scott Patterson is one actor who Amy can certainly count on to make a reappearance, after he recently told US Weekly that he wanted fans to finally see Loralei and Luke tie the knot.

He added that show bosses had to give viewers the chance to see Rory and Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) get together, too.

"You must deliver on these things, and this is what people want," he told the publication.

"Fans have spoken. It's not like they're shy. They let their feelings [be] known. And this is exactly what they want. So I don't see what the problem is."

The show first aired back in 2000 and ran for a hugely successful seven seasons before finally coming to an end in 2007.

Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life then went on to air eight years later, to the delight of dedicated fans.

Come on Amy... give the people what they want!
