Alexis Bledel recently addressed the growing rumours about a sequel revival (what do we call it?) / second season of Gilmore Girls for Netflix.
“I don’t know…It hasn’t been a conversation as of yet,” she said. “All of us are just wanting to tell a good story. The only thing I can say about future installments is that it would be about the story and the timing. We want to tell a great story.”
So, there you have it! It’s just as vague as we had before Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, except this time it’s not an outright no. This time we know that more Gilmore Girls could be made for Netflix. It’s just a matter of whether there’s a story to tell. What does Alexis think of a future story for Rory? Does she know who the father of the baby is?
“I honestly haven’t gone down that path of imagining it.” She said she doesn’t have any preferences on who it might be — given the choices of Logan, Paul or even the wookie. “It all lives in Amy’s imagination,” she said. “She has a very clear vision and always has and we haven’t had input as to the stories and the characters on the show very much. On ‘In the Life’ we did a little more than the original run of the show, but it really is all Amy.”
Although we don’t know of any official talks regarding more episodes of Gilmore Girls, we do know that Netflix is on board if Amy Sherman-Palladino is. We know that Amy & Dan have both said they were satisfied with the ending, and that they’ve been busy on other work, but that no door is ever closed. Given that it took the right story to get Amy back on board with the first revival, we’re hoping a little spark of creativity comes her way to inspire a second season of Gilmore Girls for Netflix. As with the first go round, the only one who can bring Gilmore Girls back is Amy.
Of course, fan pressure does help! Continued ratings of Gilmore Girls on Netflix, and continued fan presence online, all helps fuel the fire at Netflix. Perhaps Netflix could light the fires of inspiration for Amy by offering her another season, straight up?!
