Amy Sherman-Palladino said:

So after years of peace and quiet these lunatics have chosen to get the chattiest chicks in the world back under one roof? Really? Okay… You asked for it….Gilmore was the highlight of my ridiculous life. I can’t wait to sit with these unbelievable broads and relive a time where sleep did not exist where stress and coffee were mama’s little helpers and where we all dove into the deep end together to make something weird and very very cool.

I’d bet my back teeth more of the show’s alumni will also be in attendance.

I cannot wait to see what comes out of this. The last four words, opinion about the last (Palladino-less) season, plans for something – anything – next? Any opinions on whether this is why Lauren, Alexis, Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore) and Amy might (or might not) have met up earlier this year?

I’ve got a wedding that weekend that I cannot miss – so please please please will someone go so we can live vicariously through you?

Rich

Rich originally began contributing to GIlmore News as 'Dairyman' in 2013, a reference to the character Dairyman Dick in Tess of the D'Urbervilles, (call me Rich). Here in the UK we were late to the Gilmore party and I don't remember what made me watch my first episode - the one where Lorelai picks Rory up from the police station after she and Logan steal a yacht - but I remember watching it again immediately. And then again. Thankfully, the next show was on the next day and I watched that one three times too. And then the boat one again. I couldn't believe the dialogue was so quick and so funny and I pretended to myself that I was only watching it so I could figure out who I was more keen on - the mom or the daughter. I swore that Aaron Sorkin must have been involved but I couldn't find his name attached anywhere, even on the internet. So I watched and loved and laughed and cried and the day after the series finale, they ran the entire show from the beginning again and Rory turned into a baby so then I was all about Lorelai. Lauren Graham is astonishing ("Mother: Breathtaking") and the show was - and is - lightning in a bottle. It's a treasure for those who watch and get swept up in it, like I did and like the readers of Gilmore News. It's heartbreak and chicken soup, family dysfunction and blind optimism, lighthearted romanticism and balls-out brilliant. Thanks to Arieanna and gilmorenews.com for letting me squat and allowing my inner Gilmore Geek out for air. I worry how it would otherwise manifest.

    Who knows? Maybe they finally tripped across a script for a reunion movie that didn’t cause at least one of the principlals to run screaming and crying [and maybe cursing] from the table??

    So who’s giving odds on them announcing a Gilmore Girls movie during ATX Festival? With familiar faces from Bunheads making cameo appearances?

    Seems like with PH finishing its run this year that LG might have a short window of opportunity, assuming she might ever want to revisit the character. As to the other two principals, who knows??

    Most optimistic odds probably no better than 1 in 10, but that simply reflects the liklihood of matching everybodies probable schedules with a desire to actually do something. Would need much longer odds than that to put down a bet considering their past reticence..

    I assume by BH cameos you mean members of the quartet since all the other familiar faces were originally out of Gilmore. With the age differences seems only April would ever have any chance to interact with them, maybe a fight over a boyfriend ala Emily and PL over Richard—

    Oops, forgot about Truly. She could be brought in as a wedge between Kirk and Lulu–

      I was thinking even the actresses as new characters in the Gilmore world!

    Likewise Alysia! If it wasn’t tied up that weekend, I’d have convened an emergency StarsHollowCon right there and then :O.

    And a bunch of them will be there, it seems. I hear Kelly Bishop, Scott Patterson, Jared Padalecki, Keiko Agena, Liz Torres, Yanic Truesdale, Sean Gunn and John Cabrera are attending as well. Let’s see ”what happens from there” (not getting my hopes up, no I’m not).
