‘Gilmore Girls’ Headed To Netflix In October, Talk Of Reunion Show Lingers

Gilmore Girls fans might want to clear their schedule.

The fan-favorite show is about to become available for streaming on Netflix, with the entire seven season run reportedly headed for the site in a little more than two weeks.

The WB series features Lauren Graham as Lorelai Gilmore, a single mom raising daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel) in the quirky town of Stars Hollow. The show ran for six seasons on WB before switching to the CW for its final season in 2006-07.

There apparently could be more life for Gilmore Girls as well. Fans have been hoping for a reunion since the show went off the air, but Bledel and Graham have been busy with other projects, Graham in Parenthood, and Bledel with stints on ER and Mad Men sandwiched around movies like The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

But Lauren Graham said she is open to the idea of a Gilmore Girls reunion show, and has been in contact with the people who created the show.

In a Reddit AMA from earlier this year, Graham said of Bledel, “Love her, we’ll always have a special bond. Saw her in NY not too long ago. I had a nice lunch with TV mom Kelly [Bishop] and [show creator] Amy [Sherman-Palladino] as well.”

Graham added that she would even consider doing a movie reunion — if the circumstances were right.

“I appreciate how many have asked,” she wrote. “That character was so special – I wonder what happens to her too! Yes, IF a movie version could be as good as we’d all want it to be, I’d love to play that character again.”

Alexis Bledel hasn’t given fans as much hope, however. She hasn’t addressed the rumors lately, but back in 2010 told Entertainment Weekly that there’s been no movement on any kind of Gilmore Girls reunion.

“We have no official, or we’ve heard no official plans to make a movie,” Bledel added with a shrug.

Gilmore Girls fans can catch the series on Netflix starting October 1.
