After that major cliffhanger of an ending, "Gilmore Girls" fans are still dying to know whether or not Netflix will be ordering up more installments of revival series "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life." And while there's still no official word from the cast, creators, or streaming service about the likelihood of that possibility, that hasn't stopped one star from declaring himself game for returning to Stars Hollow one more time.
In an interview with Variety revolving around his new hit series "This Is Us," actor Milo Ventimiglia (who "Gilmore" fans know well as Rory's former bad boy boyfriend-turned-good guy Jess) also spent some time talking about the show that made him famous. When asked if he'd be willing to sign on for additional "Gilmore" episodes sometime down the road, Ventimiglia answered with an unequivocal yes -- though fans shouldn't exactly get their hopes up, either.
"If [creators] Dan Palladino or Amy Sherman-Palladino ever called me, of course," the actor said of a potential "Gilmore" return. "They are the reason why I show up. Amy created Jess, and I loved speaking her words. But I do kind of feel like audiences shouldn't get so greedy. They were given a last serving of pie — why don't we just leave it at that?"
Ventimiglia makes a good point, since the whole purpose of the revival was for Sherman-Palladino to wrap up "Gilmore Girls" the way she always intended, including using those famed "final four words." And despite the open-ended nature of "A Year in the Life"'s last scene, the series really did have a finality to it, wrapping up certain characters' story arcs very neatly. It would almost be a shame to mess with that.
Then again, we wouldn't say no to more "Gilmore," either. We'll have to wait and see what ASP and Netflix decide to do.
