Frustrated with the end of ‘A Year in the Life’, fans of the show have taken it upon themselves to write the warm, witty, and whimsical comedy for a new season of ‘Gilmore Girls’. Let’s take a look at some of the best spin-off ideas!
While some Gilmore Girls fans are still scratching their heads over the question- “Who is the father of Rory’s child”, others are busy advising the makers to save their face by making a new season of ‘Gilmore Girls’. Even a spin-off around supporting characters of the show would be a great idea. We have gone through various interesting suggestions on social media fan clubs and shortlisted five interesting subplots around which ‘Gilmore Girls’ can reboot for season 9 or have a spin-off in the ‘Gilmore Girls’ universe.
- ‘Gilmore Girls’ prequel: Before Emily and Richard Gilmore met
- Spin-off around Paris Geller and her hospital
- Comedy circus around “The Dirty Jobs of Kirk Gleason”
- The bizarre Miss Patty on the lines of ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’
- ‘Gilmore Girls’ can weave a political drama around Taylor Doose and challenge ‘House of Cards’
‘Gilmore Girls’ prequel: Before Emily and Richard Gilmore met
You must be wondering since Edward Hermann is no more, how can a plot be built around Richard and his wife Emily Gilmore. ‘Gilmore Girls’ follows Richard and Emily Gilmore when they land in Hartford. In the course of the series, Richard plans to get married to his fiancee Pennilyn, when Emily enters his life all of a sudden. Richard ditches Pennilyn and Emily and Richard end up together.
Well, this is their story in the aftermath of the meeting. We still want to know how they landed in Hartford. The two of them are a team generally but are stark opposites when they are fighting. Throughout the series, fans have enjoyed their chemistry. A prequel around the couple will be a great idea.
Spin-off around Paris Geller and her hospital
We have seen Paris working at Connecticut’s best hospital only to be eventually fired due to her abrasive behaviour. The whole medical community blacklists her. Paris faces difficulty to get a job. She opens the Geller Clinic meant for solving complicated cases.
She is one interesting character and people would like to see how Paris and her hospital plays out in the future. One can visualize an all-new ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ in Paris Geller’s clinic. Fans hope Amy Sherman-Palladino can build a quirky tale around Paris Geller’s clinic in ‘Gilmore Girls’ Season 9 or write a spin-off around her.
Comedy circus around “The Dirty Jobs of Kirk Gleason”
Nobody in Connecticut has more jobs than Kirk Gleason. Take a look at Kirk’s Curriculum Vitae and you will know there is just no job that Kirk hasn’t touched and there is no job that he has aced.
Kirk’s outstanding speciality is his lack of speciality. Imagine an anthology spin-off series built on Kirk’s jobs. New job in every episode! In one episode he is foreman of a construction company that eventually collapses, in another a librarian where he messes up the order of books. Who doesn’t want his OSHA nightmares to be grabbed by Netflix?
And, of course, Kirk will not stop before 10 seasons at least. ‘Gilmore Girls’ Season 9 won’t be enough to show him as the “Master of None”. We need to build an entire ‘Gilmore Girls’ spin-off around him.
Which of the Gilmore Girls are you? (Quiz)
The bizarre Miss Patty on the lines of ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’
Miss Patty is bizarre, and her life fanciful just like Amy Sherman-Palladino’s ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’. Amy doesn’t need to think much on the plot build-up when Miss Patty is there. A series around Miss Patty can take us on a ride to Hollywood, where Miss Patty lived most of her life. Fans on social media are rooting for the cage dance episode with Tito Puente.
Are you listening Amy? If not marvellous, you can name the ‘Gilmore Girls’ spin-off around Miss Patty as “The Bizarre Miss Patty”.
‘Gilmore Girls’ can weave a political drama around Taylor Doose and challenge ‘House of Cards’
There is every possibility of a full-fledged ‘House of Cards’ around Taylor Doose of ‘Gilmore Girls’. While ‘House of Cards’ was shelved due to Kevin Spacey’s sexual misconduct allegations, Taylor Doose can become the new Frank Underwood of TV.
This time it won’t be Washington. Though Taylor keeps boasting that he only cares about law and order, there are many dirty secrets swept under the carpet. ‘Gilmore Girls’ spin-off series can let Amy Sherman-Palladino take the plunge into the world of dirty politics on the lines of ‘House of Cards’.
