Where Amy Sherman-Palladino leads, Gilmore Girls fans will follow. But unfortunately the famed show creator is not headed in the direction of a film conclusion to the stories of Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel).
“There is nothing in the works,” Sherman-Palladino said during the panel at Saturday night’s ATX Festival. “But the good news is nobody here hates each other.”
But fans shouldn’t entirely give up hope. She added that the Stars Hollow gang wouldn’t slap together an impromptu reboot. “If it happened, I promise we’d do it correctly,” she assured the crowd.
In addition to actor Scott Patterson (Luke Danes), who continued to maintain “It’s kind of time,” the series’ other stars seemed to be, ahem, “all in” when it came to reviving the beloved series.
“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,” Graham said on the red carpet prior to the panel.
Her on-screen mother Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore) fervently agreed, saying, “I think it kind of petered out, frankly. I think it needs a wrap and a finale. I think it needs to be iced and put on the table. Sort of like it was baked, and it was put on the table in the kitchen. And they forgot to bring it out. So I’d love to see it. That’s another reason this reboot, as we call it.”
Many die-hard fans know that Sherman-Palladino had imagined the show down to the last four words before she parted ways prior to the seventh season. But the writer and show creator was unwilling to give those words up at the reunion event, giving fans even more hope for a future reboot.
“I don’t want to know unless I’m saying them or listening to someone say them,” Graham said during the panel.
