Show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has hinted that there are yet more stories to tell after ‘A Year in the Life’.
The mega-popular Warner Bros. series ‘Gilmore Girls‘ ran for 7 years from 2000 to 2007, releasing 7 seasons and capturing the attention of millions of fans all over the world. At the time, the show had become The WB’s flagship series too. In 2016, Amy, in collaboration with Netflix, created a sequel to the original show named ‘A Year in the Life’. The sequel picked up the story where the original show’s season 7 had left off. ‘A Year in the Life’ consisted of 4 one and a half-hour-long episodes. Fans of the show have been wondering whether the show will be renewed for a second season, especially since the show writer Amy dropped a vague hint regarding the show’s renewal.
Let’s find out if the second season is a possibility or just a rumour.
- What happened in season 1 of ‘A Year in the Life’?
- What was ‘Gilmore Girls’ about?
- What did the show writer say about season 2 of ‘A Year in the Life’?
Interestingly, the show writer Amy Sherman-Palladino is featured in the sequel show along with her husband. After the conclusion of ‘A Year in the Life’ Season 1, fans were worried that this might be it for the series and that it will end forever. Without any official confirmation (as of yet), the show’s chances of renewal are looking bleak. Here’s everything we know so far.
‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ Season 2: The fate of the show from the showmakers.
What happened in season 1 of ‘A Year in the Life’?
To be honest, the title of the show is pretty self-explanatory. The show is quite literally a whole year in the life of our beloved Rory Gilmore (played by Alexis Bledel). In the first episode, we see Rory move out of her apartment and shift to her friend’s homes in New York and London. In London, she is employed by Naomi Shropshire and stays with her new roommate Logan Huntzberger.
She forms a complicated relationship with Logan, who’s in a no strings attached style relationship with Rory’s employer Naomi, while already having a long-term girlfriend. Rory gets fired from her job soon after which she meets Jess Mariano who convinces her that she could write a book about her life, especially her relationship with her mother. Lorelai and her boyfriend of 10 years discuss their eventual wedding and whether or not they want to have a child via a surrogate. Luke and Lorelai eventually get married under a gazebo and towards the end of the show, Rory reveals to Lorelai that she is pregnant.
What was ‘Gilmore Girls’ about?
Amy Sherman-Palladino’s masterpiece ‘Gilmore Girls’ was an American drama & comedy show which revolved around the lives and relationships of two women: Lorelai Gilmore and Rory Gilmore. The show portrays several themes such as love, romance, betrayal, friendship, death, grief, and much more. The show’s characters were well-written and emotionally complex. Fans and critics alike enjoyed Amy’s vision of a tough-love relationship between a single mother and her young adult daughter in this show.
What did the show writer say about season 2 of ‘A Year in the Life’?
In a virtual film festival’s Q&A, writer Amy Sherman Palladino expressed that the reason why there aren’t any new episodes of ‘A Year In Life’ is not because of a lack of stories. She quoted:
“The great thing about families is there is always a story to tell”, and added, “There’s never going to be closure between Lorelai and Emily. Ever. And the older that Rory gets and the more she finds her own footing and has her own life, and she’s potentially going to have a baby, she’s going to be in conflict with Lorelai. Conflict and story and journey are not an issue.”
So, will the show’s fans get to see their favourite characters back on the screen with season 2? Or is this it for the miniseries? We can’t say for sure as there is no official confirmation regarding the show’s future (as of yet).
Writer Amy Sherman-Palladino teases a continuation of her show ‘A Year in the Life’ which is a sequel to her earlier hit show ‘Gilmore Girls’. The second season is highly anticipated as the first season ended with a major cliffhanger. Head over to the comment section below to let us know what you think!
