Basically, this is an opportunity that fans will not want to miss.
Will there be a Season 2 of the Gilmore Girls revival?
After nearly a decade off the air, fans got to return to Stars Hollow in a four-episode Netflix special which wrapped up the beloved series on showrunner Amy's terms. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life ultimately saw now-writer Rory's return to the small town, telling her mom that she is pregnant. While fans have constantly been yearning for a reboot or a second revival special, nothing has been greenlit at the moment.
In a 2017 interview, Lauren spoke with TVLine about the possibility of a reboot. While she had no word on if she'd ever revive her role as Lorelai again, she did share her idea about which direction the show could go. "To me, what would be a great next step — whenever it is, five years, 10 years — would be a Christmas movie," she said.
For now, we'll just have to continue to binge-watch past seasons with a big cup of coffee in hand.
