Fans of the hit series Gilmore Girls will be excited to learn that the series will be revived on Netflix. According to USA Today, the streaming service has inked an agreement with Warner Bros. that will see the show return for a new limited revival. Although the show was normally comprised on ten episode seasons, the new deal includes four extended episodes of 90 minutes each.
With the news breaking that Gilmore Girls will be returning to television screens, there has been some speculation as to which characters will be reprising their roles. While the leading stars of the show, including Lauren Graham, Scott Patterson, Alexis Bledel, and Kelly Bishop have not officially stated that they are going to be a part of the new episodes, some of them have taken to social media to address the rumors.
“DUDES. I can’t confirm this. But I also can’t deny this…” Graham recently wrote on her Twitter account.
Meanwhile, although the storyline has been kept under wraps, Graham recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly and offered some clues at where the characters are now.
In addition to Graham’s thoughts about the outcomes of her character’s life, some of her fellow cast members also chimed in how things turned out for their respective characters.
While Bledel stated that Rory would likely be a journalist who is “working hard” and on a “highly ambitious career path, post academia,” Scott Patterson (Luke Danes) offered two potential eventualities for Luke.
In regards to Emily Gilmore, Kelly Bishop explained how things would be different if Richard hadn’t passed away and that she doesn’t know where her Gilmore Girls character is at.
“If Richard were still with us, we would be pretty much in the same place we were. I think we were very comfortable with that life with the country clubs and the right people and all that,” she stated in the interview. “Probably still fighting the battles. Now Emily’s a widow, so that’s a whole new world. I don’t know where she is.”
Speaking of Richard, it is hoped that the new episodes will address some very important questions that the series left hanging at its original end. Of course, the biggest question is how everyone dealt with Richard’s passing away, but there are a lot of questions as to how the characters responded to all of the events that have happened since the show ended. Chief among these is how Lorelai and Rory thought the ending of Harry Potter shaped up, and just what the girls think of Taylor Swift.
Hopefully, some of these questions and more will be answered once the Gilmore Girls airs on Netflix. Exactly when the series will be up for viewing has not been officially determined.
