The dream is real: Gilmore Girls is coming back for a revival...briefly. We will soon all be treated to four new ninety minute episodes/itty-bitty movies. Not all fans realize that the final season was not run by the creator of Gilmore Girls, Amy Sherman-Palladino. She was fired before the last season as a result of a contract dispute with Warner Brothers, and the show she'd breathed life into was taken in a direction she apparently didn't approve of. She told Entertainment Weekly in 2009:
“I wanted different things for Rory. I wanted her to follow a different sort of path… [go] off on her own adventure, which I guess she sort of did. I haven’t [actually] seen the last season, but I heard about it from other people.”
Rory does break up with rich playboy Logan in the final season, so hats off to whoever made that decision. What a creep that guy was! Look at the scene where he and Rory got together in the first place:
What an a-hole! Anyway, the series will be picking up ten years later, and many members of the original cast are reportedly on board, including Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop and Scott Patterson. Hopefully, Jason Padalecki will be able to take a break from demon hunting in Supernatural to reprise his role as a working-class ex with a chip on his shoulder.
