Christmas Comes to Stars Hollow


Following the Spring decor for the International Food Festival, and the glorious Autumn touches for Fall, Stars Hollow has made its final transformation into its Winter scenes. The Stars Hollow scenes have been shot out of order, taking advantage of the availability of both the lot and the actors, with the lot already slowly transforming back for Pretty Little Liars as the Stars Hollow scenes finish filming. Gilmore Girls is scheduled to continue filming until June, but the remainder of the scenes will be shot in the back lot. 

In these latest two photos, Gilmore Girls appears to be shooting scenes around Christmas. I can’t track back the original source for the first photo, despite my best efforts, so I’ve blurred the person in it for privacy. 

Gilmore Girls has had many memorable Christmas and Winter episodes, including my favourite, The Bracebridge Dinner.

    Hmmm… So seems like they shot winter last based on “actors availability” meaning either
    a. Someone who *had* to be in the winter episode couldnt start filming in feb
    b. Someone who *had* to be in the summer/spring episode couldnt do it after feb
    The 4 main characters (Lorelai, Rory, Emily and Luke) are going to be in all 4 episodes, so the conflict wasnt theirs. Lane is also signed for 4 episodes. All of the other SH characters were fairly minor and their storylines could probably be moved around so I doubt they would change production schedules for them. So that potentially leaves 3 major characters who they would have moved things around for: Jess, Logan and possibly Paris.
    MV doesnt seem to be tied to any other major projects at the moment so that leaves Paris and Logan who they would have moved things for. Reports of Matt on set have only surfaced as of the past 2-3 weeks, so I suspect he was the actor who couldnt start shooting in February. He may be in the winter episode and then summer and fall as reported. Out of all Rory’s bf and if there’s any sort of memorial for Richard he would be the one who would make the most sense to have there. Plus his storyline was one of the major loose threads from the finale so it’d make sense to explain what happened to both of them since.

    V. What you say sounds plausible.

    I think it’s only the outside stuff that had to be shot early – so he could be in all the episodes, but not in the outside scenes for Spring. He did sign up comparatively early though, so maybe he’s just not appeared in set photos until now? (Let’s face it, I don’t really know!)
