There hasn’t been any authentic news about the second part being under production, however, we know that Netflix does want it to happen.
Fans held the mother-daughter pair created in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, way too dearly when it came on Netflix in 2016. The miniseries took place almost 10 years after the official end of the Gilmore Girls run on TV, and it was hard for fans to contain their happiness. But some fans were not happy with the way the revival ended leaving fans with many questions. This is the major reason fans have been hoping to see a renewal, and here is everything we know about it.
What Does The Original Cast Have To Say About The Renewal?
From creator to actors here’s what they have to say about the renewal:
The creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino told THR, “We pitched this as close-ended. We pitched it as: ‘This is the year in the life. This is the way it was ending.’ . . . Netflix and Warner Bros., we all went into this sort of saying that this was it. So there really haven’t been any more discussions about: Is there going to be anything else? I don’t know.”
The co-executive producer, Daniel Palladino told Vulture, “Nothing’s been discussed. This was kind of set as a one-off thing, but we would never have anticipated that we were going to do this up until a couple of years ago when it occurred to us. So we never say never. It wasn’t designed to go beyond this, but it certainly can go beyond this.”
Lauren Graham teased and left fans wondering after she said, “The ending is a bit of a cliffhanger, don’t you think?” On the other hand, Alexis Bledel, in an interview with ET said, “It all depends on the story. And I don’t know, I feel so grateful to get to do [Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life] that I’m not even looking forward necessarily at the prospect of doing more. I also feel like it’s such a special story that I don’t want to exploit it, or do too much, you know?”
Even Scott Patterson is ready for more, as according to The Hollywood Reporter, “It’d be nice to do it every year,” he said. “Maybe every two years, do a three-month thing, do four more chapters. It was easy to do. It was fun. It was really rewarding and people got a sense that if this was going to be the last thing that we now have some closure.”
In March 2017, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos confirmed to TVLine that he had spoken to Team Palladino about a sequel to A Year in the Life. “We obviously loved the success of the show [and] fans loved how well it was done; it delivered what they hoped. The worst thing is to wait a couple of years for your favorite show to come back and for it to disappoint you, but [Amy and Dan] sure delivered and people were really excited about more. And we have been talking to them about the possibility of that.”
The most recent update about the show’s second season may have added some fuel to the fire. On Feb. 1, 2020, during the 2020 Writer’s Guild Awards in New York City Gilmore Girls co-creator Amy Sherman-Palladino mentioned that she is open for another reboot. When she was asked about the possibility of brand new episodes she said:
“You know, it’s the kind of thing where we hadn’t planned on doing the Netflix movies. Never say never.”
She went on to say that she’d want the original cast to return, and it would have to be, “the right time for everybody.” She added that Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, and Kelly Bishop were all interested in doing the new series in 2016, saying, “It was like, the moment where Lauren’s like, ‘Hmmm,’ and Alexis’ like, ‘Hmmm,’ and Kelly’s like, ‘Hmmm.’ So we all just did it.”
What Is The Possible Release Date Of ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ Season 2
There hasn’t been any authentic news about the second part being under production, however, we know that Netflix does want it to happen. All we can do is speculate on the release date but with no evidence to back it up. So for now we’ll leave it blank and say that we don’t know.
After the premiere of the Gilmore Girls revival, Netflix left fans pondering with a cryptic tweet that teased the possibility of ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life 2’. The tweet had a picture from a previous episode of April, who is Luke’s daughter conducting a science fair project to find out who her father is. The tweet showcased two different men who could possibly have fathered Rory’s baby.
Who Will Return For The Second Installment?
If it is definitely for sure that the second installment is on board, and if it really happens then most likely the original cast will return. Lauren Graham (Lorelai) revealed to TVLine in April 2017 that she’d “play that character until my dying day.”
