The four-part series became an instant hit on Netflix, and if anything, created a bigger fan base than ever. Almost four years later since the series’ release, there are speculations that a new season is just around the corner. Read on to know more.
How did ‘A Year in the Life’ develop?
In 2010, Lauren Graham told Vanity fair that a Gilmore Girls movie is a definite possibility, “People with power, people who could actually make it happen, are talking about it” Later in 2015, in an interview with Gilmore Guys podcast, Scott Patterson said, ”There are talks going on at the moment. I can’t really go into any detail, but there is some activity. So I’m hopeful, and you know, I’m in
“I think there’s a lot of territory left unexplored that we could explore in a limited series or a TV movie or feature film, whatever that may be. I think it really just comes down to the script. I think everybody would jump on board” he added. However, later in June that year, the cast reunited with Amy Sherman-Palladino at the ATX Television Festival where she told the audience “I’m sorry, there’s nothing in the works at the moment”
But things took a turn in October when it was reported that Netflix struck a deal with Warner Bros to revive the series in a limited run, consisting of four 90-minute episodes.
Recap to what went down in the first season
As the title suggests, the series follows the ever-loved Gilmore Girls through four seasons of a complete year. While Rory figures out her life as a journalist, Lorelai deals with her father’s death. Consequently, her relationship with her mother Emily hits rock bottom. Rory also has some major issues with her mother as they don’t see eye to eye on the former’s book idea.
With the season coming to an end, Emily and Lorelai make amends as the former accepts her husband’s death. Life with Luke is great as the latter asks his hand in marriage. The season ends with a cliffhanger where Rory tells Lorelai that she is pregnant. So much for a life in full circle, right?
Who is Rory’s Baby Daddy?
Much before the season ended, fans had already speculated that Rory might end up getting pregnant. Which kind of makes sense since Rory wasn’t quite in a “stable” relationship and well, it definitely would be a great plotline for the show. As fans witnessed yet another great cliff hanger on the show, theories and conspiracies have been making the rounds on who could possibly be Rory’s baby daddy!
If you’re guessing Logan then you’re most likely to be proven right. Nothing has been confirmed yet, and most likely won’t be till the new season begins, but many facts support the discussion that he in fact could be the father. The pair’s affair, which was quite the highlight of the show, makes Logan the most likely and logical option for being the father.
Season 2 plotline and release date
The plotline of the second instal
lment is without a doubt going to focus on what Rory does with her pregnancy. Does she have the baby like Lorelai did when she got pregnant with the former? If she does have the baby, will the father be involved in their lives?
Simultaneously, what will the future hold for Luke and Lorelai’s relationship? Will their marriage last as long as their friendship has so far? Does Lorelai become pregnant while her daughter is pregnant as well? Fans are highly anticipating the release of the latest season and have taken to social media to express their eagerness.
“I need more of Rory, Lorelei, Jess and Luke. Please @Netflix I’m waiting for more Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life season 2! Let us see Rory pregnant” tweeted a fan.
Consequently, there has been no official statement by the showrunners or network on when the new season will be released. With the world currently dealing with a pandemic, and all productions temporarily stalled, it is uncertain when the second insta
llment will be released.
