It’s happening again. Maybe.
In the wake of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life‘s runaway success, Netflix has begun exploring the possibility of a second revival. The streamer’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos reportedly told UK’s Press Association that “very preliminary” talks are underway with (presumably) Warner Bros. for more episodes.
“We hope [it happens],” he said. “We obviously loved the success of the show [and] fans loved how well it was done; it delivered what they hoped. The worst thing is to wait a couple of years for your favorite show to come back and for it to disappoint you, but [series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and exec producer Dan Palladino] sure delivered and people were really excited about more. And we have been talking to them about the possibility of that.’
Buoyed in large part by the November release of A Year in the Life, Netflix added a record-shattering 7.05 million subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2016.
When asked about the possibility of returning to Stars Hollow, Sherman-Palladino told TVLine last December, “I don’t rule anything in my life out. When people were talking about a Gilmore movie [after the original series ended] I was always like, ‘That’s not going to happen.’ But I wasn’t going to say no. Because… why say no to anything?”
That said, the auteur — whose Amazon pilot The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel drops later this month — strongly hinted that Another Year in the Life (possible working title?!) was not be imminent. “We’re all very tired,” she conceded. “Dan and I have been in a Gilmore cocoon for a year and a half. It’s been very intense. So we’re stepping back now.”
Alexis attended yesterday the Hulu’s Winter TCA Tour 2017! She looked gorgeous, it’s so nice to see her attending events and going back to acting. I just added 107 high quality pictures of this appearance on our gallery. Feel free to check them out down below!
We already knew Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, and Samira Wiley were all starring in Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, but now EW can reveal that Gilmore Girls‘ own Alexis Bledel is also costarring as a fellow handmaid alongside Moss.
Based on Margaret Atwood’s incredible 1985 best-selling novel, the drama series — which premieres April 26 — tells the story of life in a not-so-far future dystopia called Gilead, formerly the United States, where birthrates have plummeted and society treats women as property of the state. Fertile women are in short supply and, due to the totalitarian caste system, forced into sexual servitude for high-ranked officers, in an attempt to repopulate. Moss plays Offred, one such handmaid, who must warily navigate her role in her household. Bledel plays Ofglen, her assigned companion, who may either be a friend or spy.
The Handmaid’s Tale was created, executive-produced, and written by Bruce Miller. Margaret Atwood served as a consulting producer, and Reed Morano directs the first three episodes.
