Lauren Graham Isn’t Sure About Another ‘Gilmore Girls’ Comeback

Are you able to actually ever really have an excessive amount of a great thing? I’d vote no, however on the other hand, I will be a gluttonous only child with wishes to burn — so when it comes down to the question: Should there be a Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life Part 2? The response, obviously, would be yes. Lauren Graham and Alexis Bladel nevertheless, seem uncertain.

This past year’s return to Stars Hollow marked somewhat of a disaster for #GilmoreGirls lovers, who after waiting nine long years because the show’s final season back in 2007, were given everything they needed and more: a heartfelt farewell to Richard Gilmore, a Lorelai and Luke still collectively, and a few incredible color courtesy of Emily. Yes, there have been iffy moments and multiple question marks, like Rory losing at life until Jess shows up and gives her an idea and usually slamming a Wookiee — but we were rather pleased. And so were #Netflix— the flowing giant acquired seven million new subscribers due to it.

You’d think that Season 9 would definitely be on the cards. Not quite. Speaking at Deadline’s Contender’s occasion, Lauren Graham — who stars as Lorelai — said that although she sincerely loves the character, there would have to be a solid basis for another run:

I’d play that character If it existed in a vacuum It ’s become what could we do with this particular narrative that’s fulfilling, that’s worth continuing. I do whether there is a demand to do more n’t understand. I ‘dn’t need it to feel like we overstayed our welcome.”

You cannot claim together with her reasoning — to return again with no satisfactory story would do the show’s heritage an excellent disservice. And that sentiment is obviously felt by Alexis Bledel a.k.a. Rory, also, who included:

I believe for me it comes right down from what narrative we’re telling. I’m only interested in telling a narrative that’s dynamic and that I relate to and can hook into. And when that occurs … I don’t understand. It’s such an unknown, I don’t believe we expected that this would occur.”

After all, in all honesty, I believe seeing the highly strung Rory Gilmore and showing who the daddy is would be enough to keep fans pumped for four hourlong episodes — nothing else occurs in Stars Hollow and that is huge, huge rumor fodder. But it seems like we’ll only have to wait and find out.

Can you be down with a different season of Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life?
