[Contains spoilers from Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life]
For the past year, fans of the heartwarming mother-daughter comedy Gilmore Girls have come out of the woodworks to support the show as Netflix took on a revival season. Titled Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, the revival gave fans a chance to catch up with their favorite characters ten years after the end of the original show. Although fans had mixed reviews, the show received critical acclaim and Rotten Tomatoes gave it an 88% approval rating. The revival consisted of four episodes that lasted anywhere from 88 to 102 minutes. However, it was the last four words of the last installment that left fans wanting more.
RORY: “I’m pregnant.”
While Amy Sherman-Palladino – writer of the first six seasons of the original series and the revival – maintained in interviews that this ending was always her plan for the end of the show, many fans were left unsatisfied.

Well, it’s possible that these fans are finally going to get what they have been waiting for. Over the weekend, Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos told UK’s Associated Press how thrilled he would be about a second installment of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life:
“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.”
This expressed interest is the most information that is available at the moment regarding yet another revival. It is worth mentioning, though, that despite the fact that Amy Sherman-Palladino expressed she did not wish to continue the series, she also was quoted saying she “wouldn’t say no” to the possibility.
Vanity Fair cited scheduling conflicts when discussing the chances of a continuation, explaining that Lauren Graham will be busy with Linda from HR and Curb Your Enthusiasm, Milo Ventimiglia will be tied up with This is Us, and Jared Padalecki – as always – will be starring in the long-running show Supernatural.
