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.”
