Gregg Henry recently confirmed on Twitter that he will be reprising his role as Mitchum Huntzberger, Logan’s dad, on the Netflix Gilmore Girls revival, Gilmore Girls: Season. And it seems like he may return with a bit of controversy!
When asked if he would be returning to Gilmore Girls, Gregg answered:
“I think so…Mitchum has a few more notes for Rory…”
Mitchum has never been a well-loved character on Gilmore Girls, being critical of Rory for not being good enough for his son Logan and also telling her she “don’t got it,” the spark or talent for journalism. Thankfully, Rory didn’t listen to him, and indeed proved him wrong! Indeed, by Season 7 he had seen the error of his ways – perhaps seeing her finally own up to her true self, instead of trying to be a good assistant as we saw during the time she worked for him.
I wonder what Mitchum could be criticizing Rory for now?!
