Despite the impressive 41 actors returning to Gilmore Girls, there are still some names missing from the list. With only 4 episodes of 90 minutes each, it is already more-than-impressive that so many actors will be back. As mega fans of the show, seeing these characters back on screen is an amazing way for us to pay tribute to the previous 7 seasons of the show, as well as the current lives of those we’ve missed for 8 years.
According to a new article on EW, Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino wish they could have brought back even more familiar faces, particularly that of Scott Cohen’s Max Medina. Known as a love interest for Lorelai, he first came into the series as Rory’s teacher at Chilton. Amy notes:
“One person I didn’t figure out how to get in was Scott Cohen, whom we love so much. Not that we’re not still thinking about him, but we couldn’t figure out how to get Max in there,. We had so much story. We left storylines on the cutting room floor before we started.
I can imagine the challenge of juggling both returning actors and storylines that do justice to the series and make sense. As m much as we’d like to throw them all in a scene just to be happy, it doesn’t make sense for the show!
*sniff*, we’ll miss you, Max / Scott! Maybe some of those storylines could be in another revival, right?! Let’s just make sure we remember that!
