Gilmore Girls creator hints the show could be returning

Gilmore Girls creator hints the show could be returning

Lorelai and Rory could return for more adventures, according to Amy Sherman-Palladino

Now that the leaves are falling from the trees and the evenings are blisteringly cold and dark, fans of heartwarming dramas are once again settling down to watch Gilmore Girls.

Known as one of the ultimate picks for the autumn and winter seasons, the comedy-drama series, which ran for seven seasons, has delighted viewers for years.

In case you haven’t seen the beloved show, Gilmore Girls is set in Stars Hollow, Connecticut, and follows Rory and Lorelai's close mother-daughter relationship - which, at times, seems more sisterly.

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

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

Despite ending its original run in 2007 before Netflix bought it back as a miniseries in 2016, it might have seemed like Lorelai and Rory had bid farewell forever… but apparently not!

Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has opened up about a possible return for the show.

“The thing about families is they never work their s**t out. They are dysfunctional forever and because of that, it’s the best possible way to come up with stories because you will never solve your problems there,” she told Rolling Stone.

Amy explained she’d like to revisit Lane’s story (played by Keiko Agena). She added: “I really never liked the way Lane’s life shook out. I would have liked to have spent more time on her.

“I think it would be interesting to see a baby and a kid and what that next Gilmore Girl round would be.”

Back in 2020, Amy spoke about the future of the show four years after the Netflix specials were released.

During an interview with Vogue, she said: “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."

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