“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” ended with a massive cliffhanger, but that doesn’t mean the series will continue. The shocking revelation from Rory was the way creator Amy Sherman-Palladino always intended the dramedy to end. Bledel revealed that she isn’t positive she wants to see Rory’s story go any farther.
“It all depends on the story,” Bledel explained to Entertainment Tonight. “And I don’t know, I feel so grateful to get to do [‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’] that I’m not even looking forward necessarily at the prospect of doing more. I also feel like it’s such a special story that I don’t want to exploit it, or do too much, you know?”
It seems like Bledel just wants to make sure that there is still more story that needs to be told. “Just to keep doing more for the sake of it probably just wouldn't feel satisfying for anybody,” she told E! Online. “We just want to make sure we’re doing it for a really great reason.”

The 4-episode miniseries ended with Rory (Bledel) revealing to Lorelai (Lauren Graham) that she is pregnant. Presumably, the baby is Logan’s (Matt Czuchry), who Rory decided to break up with after having an affair with him for about a year. It isn’t clear where she goes from there, but Sherman-Palladino planned that ending for the series since its inception. With her perfect ending executed, the creator is happy, but she seems willing to go back for more.
“We really had a very specific journey in our minds and we fulfilled the journey,” Sherman-Palladino explained to the Hollywood Reporter. “So to us, this is the piece that we wanted to do. And the whole thought about, ‘Is there more, is there more, is there more?’ — this has to go out into the universe now. We’ve got to put this to bed. And then whatever happens, happens.”
Netflix hasn’t announced plans for Season 2 of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” yet, but they often take their time announcing follow up seasons. Despite the immediate popularity of “Stranger Things,” the streaming platform still took six weeks to renew the freshman series.
“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” is now available on Netflix.
