Will there be more "Gilmore Girls" after "A Year in the Life"? The Netflix revival leaves room for another return, but the Gilmore girls themselves seem to think this should be the end. At least for now.
TVLine talked to Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel in a video chat before the November 25 debut of "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life." The stars were asked if they got a sense of closure from this experience, knowing that fans are already begging for more.
"We can't go through this heartache again," Graham said with a laugh. Bledel said she feels a sense of a "bookend," in a way. "Because we got to revisit the series after so long, it wasn't necessarily easy for this to come together, it was kind of a long time coming, so just to get a chance to do it seems conclusive enough." Graham added, "Isn't that enough?" Bledel continued, "In a way it feels more special to have one sort of reunion as opposed to it never-ending." Graham joked about Rory visiting Lorelai in an old folk's home on "Grandma Girls," which sounds awesome.
Graham said, for her part, she definitely feels a sense of closure: "It was complete and utter — for me as an actor and a character — closure. I don't think the show itself closes. It's like, when in a horror movie, everyone is fine and then there's one last [scary] thing and you're like, 'I guess they could go on.' That's a little bit how it feels to me."
However, Graham said this is how Amy Palladino always wanted to end the series, so if they returned it wouldn't be because the creator still didn't get a chance to say what she wanted to say. However, Bledel said she thinks there's a part of Palladino that would like "Gilmore Girls" to never end. Graham agreed, adding, "I get both sides, but I think we [Alexis and I] both feel very proud of what we got to do and I think we'd like to just enjoy that for a minute."
Yeah, no rush. It is important to keep this "special" instead of risking disappointment or just apathy, although there are plenty of fans out there who would be thrilled to watch these characters decades from now on "Grandma Girls."
