Matt Czuchry did an exhaustive amount of press for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Here’s a sampling:
On Harry Connick Jr.’s talkshow, Matt said a buddy’s wife tried to get the final four words out of him. She’d ambush him at dinner:
She would read the articles in front of my face and pause and stare at me. I wouldn’t break. She’d say ‘that was a really interesting reaction’ and I didn’t even do anything. She was shaking me down the whole dinner.
Similarly, on Live with Kelly, Matt said one fan approached in the men’s locker room, nude.
Kelly Ripa commented on how she was going through her phone’s newscrawl during the Presidential election and it was all election stories plus Gilmore Girls. She said people forgot how much they needed the show. Matt added:
It’s comfort food. Since 2007 when it finished, fans have been wanting more and we never thought it was going to happen. That’s a credit to the fans. and that’s a credit to the fans that it’s come back.
(Matt’s interview starts at 6:14.)
Asked by Screenertv if he could pick the last four words, he said:
Rory, I love you.

US Weekly asked whether Rory and Logan’s were broken up for good:
It certainly felt that way. I think the way I approached it was they had had their journey together, and from my perspective, Logan, no matter what happens moving forward, will always love Rory and in this particular moment, they know it’s time to move on.
On Facebook Live, Matt answered questions posted by fans. One person ask what Amy had told him about what Logan’s been doing for the previous eight years; she said he’s been “entrenched in the business”, which Matt for his own purposes expanded upon:
He’s actually grown to love it. For me that was a more mature way to play the character for these four chapters on Netflix as opposed to the original series where oftentimes we saw Logan fighting against the business.
Finally, Matt was asked what piece of advice he’d give Logan.
Don’t marry Odette, chase down Rory, make that work. She’s the love of your life.
