Amy Sherman Palladino speaks about ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ Season 2
After Netflix released ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’, Sherman-Palladino spoke with “Vogue” and said the following about the possibility of a revival:
“We just want people to watch these. Some people haven’t seen them yet”, Sherman-Palladino said at the time. “This was the story that we wanted to do. We wanted to do this year — a year in the life. So we accomplished what we wanted to do”.
Sherman-Palladino confessed that when they pitched ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’, the goal wasn’t to continue with season 2.
Amy Sherman said, “We pitched this as close-ended. We pitched it as: This is the year in life. This is the way it was ending”. Whatever may be the reason, the possibility of ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ Season 2 is still up in the air.
While speaking to “TV Line”, Amy instilled hopes of the revival as she said, “I don’t rule anything in my life out”. “When people were talking about a Gilmore movie [after the original series ended] I was always like, ‘That’s not going to happen.’ But I wasn’t going to say no. Because … why say no to anything?”
Does the Palladinos-Amazon deal contain ‘Gilmore Girls’ clause?
Palladino signed a multi-year deal with Amazon Studios in 2017, before the release of the original series ‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’. Fans were wondering whether the Palladinos would ever continue ‘Gilmore Girls’ on Netflix. But as always, the duo was one step forward.
“The Hollywood Reporter” reported that Palladino duos have signed an Amazon deal that includes a ‘Gilmore Girls’ clause, which will allow the Palladinos to continue the Netflix revival if they wish to do so.
Sherman-Palladino admitted to having the ‘Gilmore Girls’ clause added in Amazon’s deal, “We’ve got the Gilmore clause, we’ve carved it out”.
And then made a statement that speaks of the revival of ‘A Year in the Life’, “There would have to be an open bar and we would have to have the right story and the right format and it would have to be a time where the girls and we all felt like, ‘Yeah, let’s dive in again’. Nothing is being planned right now but it’s open if the muse strikes”.
So, what’s the verdict on season 2 of ‘A Year in the Life’?
The Palladino couple told “TVLine” in 2017 that if ‘A Year in the Life’ Season 2 happens, “It’s going to take some new shape”.
Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino confessed that they’re open to doing more ‘Gilmore Girls’.
“The Hollywood Reporter”, asked the Palladinos if they are interested in revisiting ‘Gilmore Girls’.
“We are open to doing more”, Sherman-Palladino said. “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”.
It is 2020 now and the year is already wasted in lockdown. There’s no official news about the release date of ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ Season 2. We need to wait for some more information on the renewal of the series.
Amy once told the media, “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”.
We hope that luck brightens for ‘Gilmore Girls’ and we get ‘A Year in the Life’ Season 2. Share your views about the series in the comments box below.
