Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably heard something this week about the possibility of new Gilmore Girls episodes. My Facebook feed erupted today with everyone and everything talking about it.
So of course, I had to look into it. And what I found sounds promising for us fans!
According to TV Line and The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has reportedly closed a deal with Warner Bros. for a limited run revival of Gilmore Girls, which would be penned by creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Dan Palladino. Unlike previous GG seasons, which had the full 22 episodes or so, and unlike other Netflix exclusives that have between 10-12 episodes, this limited run would only be four 90-minute long episodes, or “mini movies.” While most series seem to come back to brand-new seasons, this would essentially serve as the goodbye it deserved — and a closure to all those wondering what happened to the characters.
