Jared Padalecki appeared at HoustonCon 2016, which celebrates his show Supernatural, along with his Supernatural co-stars. The stars are known for being very interactive at these conferences, and this one was no different. Thankfully, we had some Gilmore Girls fans in the audience.
After recently confirming that he would be returning to Gilmore Girls to reprise his role as Dean Forrester, even mentioning it in his latest video, Jared confirmed a few small (but important) details about his return to Gilmore Girls. As you know, the series is returning in 4 90-minute episodes, each filmed as a different season in the year, hence the title, Gilmore Girls: Seasons.
Although this is bad news for #TeamDean, Jared confirmed to the audience that he would only be returning in 1 episode of Gilmore Girls, set to be filmed this Friday in LA. So, it looks like his potential involvement in the show is more of a brief ‘visit’ than a continuation of a storyline.
Milo Ventimiglia recently confirmed that he would be returning for 3 episodes of Gilmore Girls, although we don’t know which 3 episodes, giving us a fair amount of insight into the greater significance of Jess’ return to Stars Hollow.
We are happy to have Jared reprising his role of Dean. We hope that Dean has found success and happiness. Maybe he’s married again? Maybe he went to school? Maybe he started his own construction business? What do you think?
