Could streaming service Netflix be about to make the dreams of ‘Gilmour Girls’ fans come true, finally?
Streaming service Netflix is reportedly in negotiations to revive beloved series ‘Gilmour Girls’, reuniting creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and original stars, Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel. Graham and Bledel played mother-daughter duo Lorelai and Rory Gilmore on the popular WB drama, from 2000-2007.
Lauren Graham stared as mother Lorelai in ‘Gilmour Girls’.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix is looking to approach the revival as four 90-minute movies as opposed to a 10-episode series. The series is proving to be one of the most popular shows on the streaming service, which carries all seven seasons.
‘Gilmour Girls’ ran on the WB network from 2000-2007, earning critical acclaim and a legion of fans. It was cancelled in its seventh season, just after creator Amy Sherman-Palladino left the show, following a contract dispute with the studio
During a reunion panel at the Austin TV Festival earlier this year, Sherman-Palladinosaid, ”It's always a bummer when you don't get to end it. I had hoped maybe that there would have been a call, 'Hey, it's the last episode, do you want to come back?' And there wasn't. But that's OK, that's not the way it works in Hollywood where there are rules.”
But according to THR while many of the original actors are in talks to return, one who is not expected to make a comeback is Melissa McCarthy, who played Lorelai’s best friend Sookie St. James. McCarthy has gone on to have the most success since the show’s cancellation, starring in movies such as The Heat and the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot.
