Hold on to your third cups of coffee, people, because this is not a drill. We’ve only got 7 more days until the premier of Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life, and the speculation about how the series ends has been basically, well, endless. Who does Rory end up with? Will Luke and Lorelai get married? What the hell is Emily going to do without Richard? These are all valuable and important questions, but now a recent spate of cast interviews has left us with even more to ponder. Get this:
Actress Lauren Graham kinda, sorta hinted that the Gilmore Girls revival may not actually be the “end” of the show.
In a recent interview with Metro, both Graham (Lorelai) and Alexis Bledel (Rory) refused to call the revival an “ending”. The stars also admitted they might be open to coming back for more episodes. “It’s hard to say,” Graham said of returning post-revival. “I love it so much that I would just want to do what’s best for the show. I think what we’ve done was such a great piece, this mini-series to me was incredibly gratifying.”
It’s not exactly confirmation that more episodes are in the works, but knowing the main members of the cast are open to the idea? It doesn’t get any better than that—oh wait, actually it does.
Graham also dropped a bomb about the timeline for the show and where they could go next (you know, if they wanted to—squee!).
“Amy always had the Sherlock model in mind,” she revealed. “Some years it’s three, some years it’s one, some years they go back in time. So perhaps we need to go back in time? I don’t know, it’s hard to say.”
Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life hits Netflix on November 25, and where it goes after that depends entirely on how the revival ends.
The show’s creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino, revealed years ago that she always knew what she wanted the last four words of the series to be. She left in season six, before she got a chance to have her characters utter whatever she had in mind. With the news of the new episodes, fans have spent months speculating on what those words could be.
Now, thanks to Lauren Graham, I guess we’ll also have to spend the next week wondering whether or not they leave the door open for the show to go on.
