Scott Patterson Sees Room for More Gilmore Girls

Share

Scott Patterson, who was seen out celebrating Emmy weekend, recently spoke with Elle about Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life and the return to Stars Hollow, including some insights on the Luke & Lorelai relationship and whether this truly is the end of Gilmore Girls

With so many loose ends at the end of Season 7, including this whole Luke & Lorelai relationship, Scott Patterson has always been vocal about his desire to see Gilmore Girls come back:

“I was very, very determined to bring it back. I just thought the fans deserved it. I’ve been on other shows and I’ve known people on historic shows, but the fanbase for this show is amazing.”

Although Scott initially had trouble re-connecting with Luke, once he felt himself back in Stars Hollow, he fell back into the role:

“I’m a father. That changed everything for me. I was a little confused the first day of rehearsal. When we were about to shoot in the diner I couldn’t quite get him. I didn’t feel like I had him. I had to take a walk around Stars Hollow and re-live things and smell it and sense it and feel it. And it didn’t take long. I went back in and said, ‘Alright, good to go.'”

Talking about the magic and “emotional logic” of Amy Sherman-Palladino’s unique writing style for Gilmore Girls, Scott says that memorizing the lines is not as hard as you would expect! And as for Luke & Lorelai, whose current relationship status (and lack of wedding ring) has many people concerned?

“The chemistry there is so electric. From my side of the aisle, it’s undeniable. It’s a level of passion that comes along once in a lifetime. And that’s how I chose to play it.”

In a previous interview, Scott Patterson has mentioned that Luke & Lorelai are still together, but are “figuring out the next step,” that the “relationship is really ramped up and the stakes are much higher,” with some “juicy stuff in there,” particularly in Fall, which is said to be a “very emotional” episode with one of the best Luke & Lorelai scenes, at least according to Scott. Lauren Graham has also been quoted as saying that she has had some “arrested development” in her own life, particularly when it comes to relationships, and that the death of her father will somehow give her insight into that. 

And as for the potential return of Gilmore Girls, which has been hinted at by many already, Scott says that though “the curtain is closed” on Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, tying up the show the way Amy Sherman-Palladino had always meant to, perhaps it will never really be over. 

“I think the curtain is closed, but it’s a really thin curtain and I can see through it,” he said. “I think can people can see us, too.” So does he think there’s room for more episodes in the future? “Yeah,” Patterson said. “I do. I honestly do.”

Thanks Scott!

    I hope they do more Gilmore Girls. I think it would be huge there fan base is only growing. It also depends on how these 4 episodes land with fans. Will we like how things turn out? If Rory ends up with Rich cheating Logan and becomes a Huntzenburger I go one an NEVER tuning into this show again. If that’s Rory’s future I will be forever disappointed. You should NEVER go back to a cheating college ex boyfriend.
