Is the next season of the ‘Gilmore Girls’ set to finally bring Rory and Jess together?
There aren’t many who are unaware of the phenomenon that ‘Gilmore Girls’ was in the 2000s. This comedy-drama that was telecasted on the now-defunct, The WB television network, for 6 seasons, before being picked up by the CW for a final season, enjoyed a dedicated fanbase throughout its run.
The show was witty, funny, and took you on an emotional rollercoaster ride, arising out of the mother-daughter dynamics. Amy Sherman-Palladino’s ‘Gilmore Girls’ was the perfect family drama that navigated through the ups and downs of life.

It had many elements that made it such a loved show. However, its irresistible and distinct charm definitely lay in the witty and rapid dialogues between its main characters.
In 2016, a revival of the series, ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ was released on Netflix, after years of dissatisfaction on part of the fans as well as Sherman-Palladino with the series finale. So, are the fans in for another season of the show? Will they finally get the moment they have been waiting for – seeing Rory and Jess together?
Lorelei and Rory in the unforgettable town of Stars Hollow
‘Gilmore Girls’ followed Lorelei (Lauren Graham) and her high school daughter, Rory (Alexis Bledel) whom she had at the age of 16. Lorelei moved to a small town called Stars Hollow to raise a one-year-old Rory.
The series chronicled the mother-daughter relationship, their respective romantic interests, friendships, and ambitions throughout its 7 seasons. The heart-warming performances of both Graham and Bledel contributed majorly to the show’s enduring popularity.
The series was also responsible for introducing quite a few teen heartthrobs including Chad Michael Murray, Jared Padalecki, and Milo Ventimiglia to name a few. The unique style of having the plot revolve around its rapid-fire dialogues made the series special enough to land a spot on Time magazine’s list of “All-time 100 TV shows“.
With a predominantly female viewership, the show is considered a cult classic today. Its availability on Netflix has introduced it to an entirely new generation of viewers, extending its loyal fandom even further.

The Netflix produced four-part reboot, ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ saw a resurgence in the popularity and viewership of the series. The 2016 miniseries was an attempt to fix the underwhelming finale that the series originally had in 2006 and give fans a well-written revival.
The reboot saw Lorelei get married to long-time partner, Luke Danes, and Rory announcing that she was pregnant.

Even though initially the idea was to have a closed finale, bringing the show to an end once and for all, the possibility of revival for season two being pushed by Netflix prompted them to keep it open-ended.
So, is a season 2 in the works? It might be very soon. Creator, Sherman-Palladino admitted, “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 further said, “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”.
However, fans are desperate for another season of the show because they are still waiting for Rory and Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) to get back together. Season 1 of the revival ended on a cliff-hanger with the viewers speculating the identity of Rory’s partner whose child she was carrying, and fans are praying that it is Jess. Well, only time will tell if Rory will finally end up with Jess or not, but till then fans can only wait and hope that their drama-world dreams do come true.
