The Girls Are Back!


Revivals seem to be the latest trend with the Friends reunion on NBC, X-Files on Fox, and Fuller House on Netflix. The latest show to receive a revival is the well loved Gilmore Girls series. Gilmore Girls was on the air for seven seasons and ended in 2007. The show ended on a cliffhanger since at the time the actors and writers were not aware that it would be their final season. Due to this devoted fans were ecstatic at the prospect of finally getting the closure and finale they had been longing for.

Amy Sherman-Palladino, creator and writer of the show, who left after the sixth season amid negotiation problems, will return as writer and director to Girls_gallery_mainfinish the show the way she always intended. Fans are jumping with joy at this news because they will finally get to hear the final four words which Sherman-Palladino said was how she envisioned the show would end since the beginning.

We didn’t really want to do a reboot of the series. We thought if we were going to do something, we wanted to do something a little special. I love Sherlock. And I love their format, because their [episodes are more] than just an episode. They’re upwards of 90 minutes long sometimes. So we thought, ‘Why don’t we do something like that?’” explained Sherman-Palladino about how she wanted the revival to be platformed.

The revival will be on Netflix, fittingly since last May Netflix added all seven seasons of the show. The revival will be four 90 minute episodes; each episode will feature a season of the year: winter, spring, summer, fall. The show will begin in winter when the Gilmore Girls will be grieving the death of family patriarch Richard played by Edward Hermann who himself passed away in 2014. The show will then end in the fall season.

“It worked to open on snow and have a colder, starker environment. And then end on a lusher, warmer, golden-y town, which lends to where the story will end,” explained Sherman-Palladino.

Alongside the main women will be Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore), Keiko Agena (Lane Kim), Sean Gunn (Kirk Gleason), Yanic Truesdale (Michel Gerard), and Liza Weil (Paris Geller). Fans were ecstatic that the girls love interests through the years will be returning such as Matt Czuchry (Logan Huntzberger), Scott Patterson (Luke Danes), Milo Ventimiglia (Jess Mariano), Jared Padalecki (Dean Forester), and David Sutcliffe (Christopher Hayden).

The question remains, will this highly anticipated revival give the fans old and new the series finale they so desperately wanted but never received? We will have to wait until Gilmore Girls: Season premieres later this year.
