Gilmore Girls Creator Says Fans ‘Deserve’ A Reboot
When it comes to TV shows canceled far before their time, fans win some and lose some. Look at how wonderfully Arrested Development has returned from the grave (after nearly a decade!). But Gilmore Girls devotees may have to wait a while for their favorite WB-turned-CW show to get the Entourage movie treatment.
The dramedy’s creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, who went on to make ABC Family’s Bunheads, revealed to fans this weekend at Austin’s ATX Festival, “There is nothing in the works.”
But, it wasn’t all doom and gloom on her part! Instead, Amy kept hope alive by pointing out that, “the good news is nobody here hates each other,” talking about the packed panel of the show’s alums. The cast being 100% friendly is a definite check in the positive column for an eventual reunion.
Amy also wouldn’t tell the panel’s attendees what her planned final four words of the series — which she parted ways with before the final seventh season — were, making a return to Stars Hollow look even more possible. If there was absolutely no chance of an on-screen reunion, why not just spill the beans?
Lauren Graham, who played TV’s top mom, Lorelai Gilmore, is ready for the reunion, telling Us Weekly, "I think because Amy didn't get to finish the show, there is an unusual willingness to see what that would look like. So we'll see.” Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki, AKA Dean Forester, Emily Gilmore’s real-life counterpart Kelly Bishop and Scott Patterson, who played Luke Danes, are all on board too.
So let's get some execs on the line and make this reboot happen!
