Gilmore Girls: Another Revival Might Not Be A Good Idea

Gilmore Girls is an iconic show which is massively successful in retaining its fans. The story of a young mother and daughter set in Stars Hollow struck a chord with the audience. To rein in on the massive popularity, Netflix recently released a four part episode series ‘A Year in the Life’.

‘A Year in the Life’, a continuation of the story of Gilmore Girls, received mixed reactions from its fans. There was already too much pressure to not mess around with the legacy left by the show. However, the latest installment has left too many questions unanswered.

Gilmore Girls May Soon Invade Your Screens Again

With the latest installment in mind, fans may not be sure whether Gilmore Girls coming back is good news or not. Netflix is looking at what’s next for Rory and Lorelai. CCO Ted Sarandos is holding “very preliminary” talks for a take 2 on the revival series. The last episode in the series ended in a cliffhanger.

So, there is enough content out there to bring out another series. Spoilers ahead (if you haven’t watched A Year in the Life, stop reading).

The series ends with Rory telling her mother Lorelai that she is pregnant. Those who follow the show know that Lorelai bore Rory when she was a teen. The cycle seems to be continuing even in Rory’s life. The portrayal of the youngest Gilmore did not go down too well with the audience. Her character is initially portrayed as driven and ambitious but because of wrong personal choices, she settles for a lesser amazing version of herself.

Will The Series Be Successful?

A bad example of a loved series turning into a bore is Sex and The City. As the story kept dragging out, many fans lost interest. If the majority of the reviews for Gilmore Girls revival series is looked into, it seems best to leave the series as it is.

Rory’s character has already gone through a massive transformation. Sketching out anything more may mar the essence of the role. Friends still continue to be an immensely popular sitcom. Part of the reason for its cult status that the makers chose to let the farewell be the final goodbye to viewers.

Gilmore Girls had a successful run on TV from 2000-2007. Netflix’s Sarandos says, “The worst thing is to wait a couple of years for your favorite 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,” reports BBC.

Hope, the content officer of Netflix is hearing his own statements quite well.
