After a nine-year hiatus, “The Gilmore Girls” returned with four 90-minute episodes for Netflix last fall. Presented under the umbrella title of “A Year in the Life,” these telefilms caught fans up with the lives of Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory Gilmore (Alexis Biedel) and dealt with the death of family patriarch Richard Gilmore (the late Edward Herrmann). And we got to finally hear those final four words long promised by series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino.
With the final installment of these four ending on a cliffhanger as Rory reveals that she is pregnant, it is not surprising that fans are demanding more episodes. And both actresses, who attended Deadline’s Emmy Contenders event on the weekend, are open to the idea.
After Graham readily admitted, “I would play that character until my dying day,” she teased the idea of another limited series by wondering, “what could we do with this story that is satisfying, that is worth continuing.” However, she cautioned, “I wouldn’t want it to feel like we overstayed our welcome.” Likewise, Biedel explained, “it comes down to what story we’re telling; I’m just interested in telling a story that is dynamic and that I sort of relate to and can hook into.”
