After a nine-year hiatus, “The Gilmore Girls” returned last fall with four 90-minute episodes that streamed on Netflix. 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 Graham is certainly open to the idea. As she told TV Line in a recent podcast, “To me, what would be a great next step whenever it is — five years, ten years — would be a Christmas movie.”
At the upcoming Emmys, Graham and Biedel are both contending in the crowded Best Movie/Mini Actress race. Also on the Emmy ballot are supporting actors Matt Czuchry, Scott Patterson and Yanic Truesdale as well as scene-stealing supporting actress Kelly Bishop. While original cast members Melissa McCarthy, Milo Ventimiglia and Liza Weil made cameos in this reboot, their appearances were too short to be worthy of Emmy consideration.
