‘A Year in the Life’ has ruined ‘Gilmore Girls’ for everybody. Will season 2 be able to change viewers’ opinion?
It was beauty in the little moments, the small details, which made ‘Gilmore Girls’ an obsession. With the end of the series, fans were left wanting more. It was only in 2016, 10 years after ‘Gilmore Girls’ went off the air, that the fans’ thirst was quenched with a reboot series named ‘A Year in the Life’. But much to their despair, this mini-series made the fans feel cheated and they wished that they had never watched the reboot.

After living for a decade without Rory and her mom Lorelai, fans had higher expectations from the reboot series. Though it continued the same story that went off the air in 2007, fans weren’t satisfied. Why didn’t fans take the story well? Let’s find out.
‘Gilmore Girls’ fans wish for a world in which the reboot ‘A Year in the Life’ doesn’t exist.
How has ‘A Year in the Life’ ruined ‘Gilmore Girls’?
Unlike other TV shows in the 2000s, ‘Gilmore Girls’ was not centered around romance. Instead, it was about Rory, a girl who was smart, funny, compassionate, who loved to read and write, and the one who studied hard and wanted to be a journalist. Teenage girls aspired to be like her, and some even applied to journalism courses. Girls saw themselves in her – struggles, triumphs, and life, in general. So, when Netflix announced the revival of ‘Gilmore Girls’, fans were excited, only to later be disappointed in ‘A Year in the Life’.
The reboot series lacked the basic characterization of Rory Gilmore and changed the audiences’ perception of her. This series turned the wunderkind, Rory, into a bore.
Next, talking about the ruin-game, half-way through, the series was a lot to take. It offered a weird detour. And though ‘A Year in the Life’ summer cast included all the main characters, the series was graded low. We can only hope for a better new season if it ever happens!
Fans wished they hadn’t watched ‘A Year in the Life’
Six terrible hours of screen-time! The reboot series threw out everything good about the show that the fans relished. The original ‘Gilmore Girls’ was a series about girls who wanted to be grown-up not just to be successful, but important. With ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in The Life’, fans expected to watch the forward journey of Rory, to know what’s coming ahead, her relationship with her mother, how she chased her goals, achieved her dreams, and believed in herself.
Instead, what they got was a story about Rory who’s still spiraling because she has a terrible self-aggrandizing attitude.
In a nutshell, this reboot series is nothing but joyless. All of the important characters are wallowing in misery. No wonder the hardcore fans wish they hadn’t watched the series. Because, you know, it is hurtful to watch someone you admire and someone you can relate to, taking a self-sabotaging path!
How ‘A Year in the Life’ Season 2 might undo all the damage done by season 1 of the ‘Gilmore Girls’ reboot.
Will ‘A Year in the Life’ Season 2 be able to make the amends?
The important question is, “Is season 2 happening?” With Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham busy with other movies and TV shows, the renewal of ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ for season 2 seems a tad bit difficult.
Though a fan has tweeted this:
But we aren’t very confident about its reliability. There isn’t a ‘A Year in The Life’ Season 2 trailer on the internet yet. All we can hope is that the next season of AYITL happens soon, and may it change the ruined image of the Gilmore girls!
Amy Sherman-Palladino, the show creator, explained during a Woodstock Film Festival that a lack of story line is NOT what is standing in the way of a sequel. So, we are guessing the only thing that’s standing between the fans and a second season revival is the busy schedules of the main leads. Have you watched the reboot series? What are your thoughts? Do you want a season 2? Let us know in the comments.
