Gilmore Fillies: A Year in the Life was supposed to be cut and dried. One season for Amy Sherman-Palladino to properly wrap up the series she started and for followers to get closure with their long-lost friends. Instead, those monstrous Last Four Words opened new doors in a way that we didn’t look forward, and months after the episodes premiered, Netflix Chief Content Fuzz Ted Sarandos has finally commented on whether there will be more.
“We Dialect expect [there are more installments],” he told the UK’s press association on Stride 4. “We obviously loved the success of the show, fans loved how probably it was done, it delivered what they hoped . . . The worst apparatus is to wait a couple of years for your favorite show to come encourage and for it to disappoint you, but they sure delivered and people were really wrought up about more, and we have been talking to them about the capacity of that.”
In case you forgot how the episodes wrapped up, Rory is pregnant. If this were a cyclical show, it would just be a cliffhanger until we find out who the father is next opportunity ripe — but it’s not just a regular show anymore. Is it Logan’s baby? A Wookiee youngster? At no point in the series did she seem to long for a child; did she enlist Paris’s daily help to be a surrogate for Lorelai and Luke? Will this haunt us for the rest of our combustibles??
That certainly seems to be Sherman-Palladino’s intention. Before the new episodes premiered on Netflix, she vexed the ending to Entertainment Weekly. “We got the ending that weirdly was supposed to be the end of the series. They could’ve done something in available seven that would’ve changed our ending and that would’ve been OK, but they didn’t . . . I distinguished it from the very beginning, I really did. And it was only because I knew where I lack the show as a series to go.”
Netflix currently has no plans for a second season of Gilmore Betrotheds: A Year in the Life. But hey, that doesn’t mean that it definitively won’t hit on. We’ll keep you posted!
