The Gilmore Girls 2016 revival titled A Year in the Life has been receiving rave reviews. Fans are wondering if the Netflix reboot will still have an extension following its controversial “last four words”.
The four-part event series continued the famous dramedy 10 years after it went off air. It still featured lead stars Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) and their endearing mother-daughter tandem. Cast members Emily (Kelly Bishop), Luke (Scott Patterson) and other Stars Hollow residents also returned.
Many are hoping that the short return will still have a continuation following Gilmore Girls’ “last four words.” This is because of how a lot of viewers felt that its ending was too vague – specifically the storyline about Rory’s surprise pregnancy.
This issue was addressed by series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband and executive producer Daniel Palladino.
“We’re enjoying the fact that these are finally out there and people are seeing these now,” Amy told E! News.
The showrunners added that the plot of Gilmore Girls 2016 were stories that they “locked [themselves] away in attics coming up with.”
“We’re just happy they’re out,” Amy added.
Rory’s solo spinoff?
There are speculations that the Gilmore Girls Netflix reboot will have a spinoff in the future. One possible direction is for it to feature Emily in Nantucket. However, Amy brushed off the said possibility by saying that they have not thought of it.
However, she and Daniel were coy when asked about another Gilmore Girls spinoff for Rory as a new mom. The reboot did not reveal who the father of her unborn child is, but the creators hinted that there were “a lot of clues.”
“I know with the time passage it wasn’t 100 percent clear, but we also didn’t have her engage with who she thought was the father,” Daniel pointed out.
Clues that Gilmore Girls 2016 is the ending
Amy also said something that makes it seem like the Gilmore Girls 2016 return would be the last. “We just sort of felt like we wanted to leave it in that way,” she said about Rory’s pregnancy. “It was really less about who the father was and more about Rory repeating her mother’s history.”
