Rumors are swirling about Gilmore Girls coming back into our living rooms.
Netflix is currently negotiating to work on a new project; a Gilmore Girls resurrection series. But instead of the standard 10-episode series, it would allegedly be laid out for fans in four 90-minute mini-movies.
Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, executive producer Daniel Palladino and the original cast (including Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel) are currently in the midst of discussing the potential revival with Netflix.
The series originally launched in 2000 under Warner Brothers. There were seven seasons and 153 episodes. Sherman-Palladino, however, wasn’t involved in the entire series. She left the show before the finale in 2007 because of a contract dispute with WB.
In a 2009 interview with Entertainment Weekly she stated that the final episodes of the show didn’t match up with her personal vision of how Gilmore Girls would end. By bringing back Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, Netflix will give Sherman-Palladino the opportunity to finish the show how she originally intended.
Earlier this year, at an Austin TV Festival, she said: “It’s always a bummer when you don’t get to end it. I had hoped maybe that there would have been a call, ‘Hey, it’s the last episode, do you want to come back?’ And there wasn’t. But that’s OK, that’s not the way it works in Hollywood where there are rules.”
Rerun episodes of Gilmore Girls have been a popular choice on the streaming site and so it’s no surprise that Netflix wants to cash in on fans love of the dramedy.
Representatives from Netflix and Warner Brothers declined to comment on the rumors.
