After reviving ‘Gilmore Girls’ in the form of ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’, there is speculation that there could be yet another revival.
A full nine years after season 7 of the beloved cult show, ‘Gilmore Girls’, ended, the makers of the show decided to stoke the hearts of millions of fans by announcing a revival. ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ was released as a four-part limited series comprising of episodes of 90-odd minutes on Netflix, taking forward the story of Lorelai, Rory, and the quirky residents of Stars Hollow.

- Some things old, some things new
- Talks about another revival!
With a bit of dilly-dallying and many questions about which characters were to return and which not, what would the reunion be like, who was going to guest star and how the narrative would take shape, the revival was finally released on Netflix in 2016. Late, and a long wait indeed, it was, but as the fans would have you know, it was all worth it!
And now, the show-makers are flirting with the hearts of the fans once again by suggesting there could be a revival of ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’itself! Maybe a ‘Gilmore Girls’movie?
The OG ‘Gilmore Girls’
About a mother-daughter pair who share an unconventionally close and warm bond, the original ‘Gilmore Girls’was just the perfect combination of drama and comedy, making you laugh and cry in equal turns and identify with and root for its many, most lovable, characters.
It followed the adventures of Lorelai Gilmore, an independent, spirited woman from an upper-class background who gets pregnant at sixteen and decides to raise her daughter on her own; and Rory, her daughter, a precocious teenager navigating young, adult life.
‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’– Some things old, some things new
‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ was released as a limited series and comprised of four episodes titled “Winter”, “Spring”, “Summer”, and “Fall”. It has the same witty banter, charm, and moving dramedy of the original series, but the characters have also broadly developed:
Rory is now a freelance journalist, Lorelai is struggling with business while navigating relationship curveballs with Luke, while Emily is grieving her husband’s death and learning to be alone for the first time in 50 years. An interesting character reveal was of Michel’s, who in this series truly flourishes, both in terms of career and personal life!
“Talks” about another revival
Apparently, there have been some “talks” with the show’s creators about reviving the show again. However, there is nothing said or implied about the nature of such a revival, if anything wereto happen.
But, with the storyline progressing in this way, there is a lot of potential for a ‘Gilmore Girls’ movie. More so for a Christmas special episode or even a Christmas special movie!
Netflix, are you listening? The fans want more of the Gilmores!
