The Gilmore Girls fandom has been desperately waiting about the second season of the revival, probably hitting Netflix.
It has been four long dreadful years since the Gilmore Girls were last seen for reviving the show and the cast reprising their respective roles in the season titled ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ which had four episodes varying from 88-102 minutes.
Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, “ premiered on November 7, 2016. This was the unofficial season eight of the series that began in 2000 and ended in 2007. The series revival storyline picked up where the seventh season left off.
And while we earnestly wait for the green light signalling for season two, co-creators Amy Sherman-Palladino and spouse Daniel Palladino have confirmed a second season of the revival. Thank goodness! Let’s go way back and look for hints about a possible second season.
Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life Season 2: Renewal Status
Currently, Netflix has not made any official announcement regarding season 2 of Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life. However, that simply doesn’t mean fans should despair. Ted Sarandos, the co-CEO and chief content officer of Netflix, was stunned by the show’s achievement and paved the way for a possible season 2.
Back in March 2017, in an interview with the UK’s Press Association, Sarandos said, “We hope [there are more installments], we obviously loved the success of the show, fans loved how well it was done, it delivered what they hoped… The worst thing is to wait a couple of years for your favourite show to come back and for it to disappoint you, but they sure delivered and people were really excited about more, and we have been talking to them about the possibility of that.”
Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, along with her spouse, Daniel Palladino, currently has a multi-annual deal at Amazon.
Amy (via Radio Times) said, “We carved out a little niche for ourselves with Amazon saying that if we ever want to do it, if the girls and us get together and we have a concept that works, then we have the freedom to do it, so it would just have to be the right circumstances, and that we’re all sort of in the same drunken mood together to go repaint Stars Hollow again. Because we had to repaint Stars Hollow, and we’ll have to repaint it again. But it’s definitely possible.”
“I think [we would do more] if the time is right and everybody is in the mood — because that’s how it happened before. We all sort of saw each other at a festival and kind of went, ‘Hey! No one hates each other.’ And decided to do it,” the series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino told Us Weekly in January 2018. “[It] could happen again — absolutely.”
Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life Season 2 Release Date And Speculations
Ever since there has been speculation swirling around that the Gilmore Girls could return for the second season of the revival, and it’s likely to release in September 2021. We hope that it’s true! The showrunners behind the hit show kept the rumours alive but for now, we have to look out for official announcements.
The series seventh season of the finale titled, ‘Bon Voyage’ remained as the ending of the Gilmore Girls until October 2015, when Netflix picked up the series for an additional four episodes marking the show’s revival.
What Will Be The Plot Like For Season 2?
Executive producer Daniel Palladino commented that the storyline would differ depending on when they jotted down more episodes. “It really depends on when we attack the story. Coming back eight or nine years after the original series for the four movies we did — it dictates partly what the story is going to be,” he said. “And the death of Ed Herrmann was unfortunately one of the things that changed for the cast so it changed what the characters were going through. It really just depends on when we do it. We can do it a year from now, two years, five years, 10 years. It would be different.”
If the show indeed returns, Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life Season 2, it would definitely follow the maternity journey of Rory Gilmore, leading the show to a complete story.
