What could possibly happen to Rory and Logan’s relationship if Netflix brings back the mini-series of Gilmore Girls for another season?
Writer Amy Sherman-Palladino is not recognized as the queen of female-led comedies for nothing. Before her, globally successful period comedy The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel, came the widely-popular family comedy-drama, Gilmore Girls, which melted the hearts of its audience. The series premiered on WB and very soon became the talk of the town for its distinctive rapid dialogues, infused with pop culture references and loveable characters. It made stars out of its two leading ladies, Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, and became a flagship show for the network. The CW cancelled the series, concluding it at season 7, much to the disappointment of its fans. The dramedy is considered a cult classic today and even has a special revival produced by Netflix in 2016 called, Gilmore Girls: A Year in Life. With four years having passed since its last episode aired, is Netflix set to bring Gilmore Girls back with a bang?

Gilmore Girls’ Lorelai and Rory are each other’s ride or die
Honestly, there has never been a better mother-daughter duo on TV than Lorelai and Rory. The show’s demographic that is mostly female, fell in love with the relationship and its intriguing dynamics right off the bat. The first seven seasons followed a thirty-something Lorelai (Lauren Graham) raising her teenage daughter, Rory (Alexis Bledel), who she had given birth to at the age of sixteen. Gilmore Girls was all about their love for one another along with their careers, friendships, and relationships with men.
When Gilmore Girls was terminated in 2007, fans were displeased with the fact that none of the love stories on the show really culminated into anything monumental, and the series did not get the ending it deserved. In 2014, the show became available on Netflix and suddenly its popularity resurged, even being referred to as “a quirky pop culture obsession” by The Washington Post.
Netflix banked on the series’ potential along with its everso loyal fanbase, and to everyone’s delight produced a sequel in the format of a miniseries –‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in Life’.

When the series was picked up by The CW for its final season in 2006, it was also given new showrunners because the network and Sherman-Palladino could not come to an agreement. However, going ahead without the original creator backfired as the show failed to maintain its already set standards. At the end of season 7, The CW cancelled the series.
Lauren Graham herself expressed her disappointment with the way the series was concluded saying, “It didn’t end in the way I think any of us would have liked — and that is a disappointment for me as well. And a sadness, really. When the reruns come on now I think about the path it took, and it makes me sad. I wish we would have known it was the end when we shot the final episode, quite simply.”
In 2016, Netflix revived the series as Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. The mini-series featured Lorelei’s wedding, finally giving her a happy ending with Luke Danes. It also showed Rory having a brief affair with ex-boyfriend, Logan Huntzberger, which they mutually ended shortly after and also brought her face-to-face with former partner, Jess. The show ended in a cliff-hanger that Rory was pregnant, without revealing who the father was. Taking this on, the next season can have a lot of drama. If the child is Jess’, her equation with Logan may turn sour, but if it is Logan’s, her chance at a happily-ever-after with Jess will vanish.
With so many questions unanswered, fans are hoping for another season ASAP.
All that we know about the upcoming season 2
Show-runner Sherman-Palladino has admitted that another season might soon be in the works revealing, “We are absolutely open to do more. You know, I talk to Lauren constantly. And we’re very tight with Milo [Ventimiglia], Kelly [Bishop], and Alexis. We’re tight with the Gilmore family.” She continued, “It’s not anything other than we need the right story, the right format, and the right timing. It’s nothing more than that, it’s not that we have it in our deal and Amazon will let us go do it. So it’s not about anything other than it was sort of kismet the first time. And I feel like it needs to be kismet if we do it again.”
Alexis Bledel too expressed her desire to come back with a good story saying,
“what story we’re telling… I’m just interested in telling a story that is dynamic and that I can hook into.”
The popularity was massive and considering the response of viewers and even critics, Netflix might just be spinning out another season very soon.
