‘Gilmore Girls’ is returning to Netflix for a reported four episodes, and fans freaked when the news broke on Oct. 19. However, Lauren Graham tweeted a comment about her supposed return to the show that could go either way. See what she said here!
Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop and Scott Patterson are all expected to participate in the Netflix revival of Gilmore Girls — or are they? Lauren, 48, responded to reports with a message that has us just a little nervous. Netflix has finally closed a deal with Warner Bros. to do a mini series of 90-minute episodes for the streaming service, but will Lorelai Gilmore return as well?
When HollywoodLife.com‘s sister company, TVLine, wrote a story about the Gilmore Girls revival. Lauren responded: “DUDES. I can’t confirm this. But I also can’t deny this…” You’re killing us here, Lauren! We can only hope that she’ll join the show along with the rest of the gang. A lot can change by the time the show hits Netflix!
Lauren has been incredibly busy since the show ended in 2007. She’s starred on Parenthood and Web Therapy, and the movie Joshy, slated for 2016. Hopefully she’ll take time out of her busy schedule to make more GG!
As we know, Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino will take the lead on the project. Due to a contractual dispute, she left the series early, in 2006, when the show moved to The CW from The WB. She’ll finally get to end the show her way — and maybe we’ll learn the final four words! According to TVLine, the new series will have a time jump which will take the show to present day/eight years since the show aired. Also, since we know you were wondering, they confirmed the major men in Rory’s life will show up in the four episodes.
Amy actually first brought up the possibility of a GG revival at the ATX TV Festival this summer. “It would have to be the right everything — the right format, the right timing,” she said. “It would have to be honored in a certain way. If it ever came around, I think we would all jump in and do it…if it ever happened, I promise we’ll do it correctly.” That’s all we need to hear!
