We’ve got some bad news for “Gilmore Girls” fans. Although a majority of the cast reunited in Austin, Texas at the 2015 ATX Television Festival, series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino confirmed that they wouldn’t be reprising their roles on screen. Amidst all the rumors and speculation of a “Gilmore Girls” movie, Sherman-Palladino told the audience at ATX that a movie is “not in the works.”
“If it ever happens I promise we’ll do it correctly,” she added.
Sherman-Palladino’s “we’ll do it correctly” comment comes just a few hours after she addressed the final season of “Gilmore Girls” – something that she was not apart of. She told audiences earlier in the day that it was a “bummer” that she didn’t get to end it on her terms.
“The last season was the last season, s—t happens,” she said during the “Coffee With Amy Sherman-Palladino” panel Saturday morning. “We left it in the hands of our writers, so it wasn’t like we got Saddam Hussein to come in. We had smart, strong writers who had been with us and trained with us. We felt like, ‘Well, if we can’t be there, at least it’s in the hands of the people that we know will honor the spirit of what we set up.’”
“Gilmore Girls” aired its series finale in 2007. Rumors of a film follow-up sparked in 2014 when star Lauren Graham conducted a Reddit AMA with fans. She said that she’d “love to play that character again” if the movie “could be as good as we’d all want it to be.” Actor Scott Patterson reignited the rumors again last month when he said that “there is some activity.”
