“I’ve begun praying as much as possible.”
Over the weekend, Netflix’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, gave Gilmore Girls fans a little bit of hope about seeing new episodes of everyone’s favorite fictional ladies from Connecticut.
Sarandos told the UK’s Press Association that Netflix is in “preliminary talks” with GG creator Amy Sherman-Palladino.
“We obviously loved the success of the show, fans loved how well it was done, it delivered what they hoped,” he said.
“The worst thing is to wait a couple of years for your favorite show to come back and for it to disappoint you,” he continued. “But they sure delivered and people were really excited about more, and we have been talking to them about the possibility of that.”
When Netflix released four 90-minute episodes of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life in November, it was well-received by fans…
…but the “final four words” of the series — which Sherman-Palladino said were always intended to be the final four words — left people wondering if there would eventually be more episodes.
And in response to the possibility of even MORE GG episodes, fans are freaking out just a little.
NEW GILMORE GIRLS!!!!!

Some people are hesitant about another season of the revival…
I'm all for more Gilmore Girls if someone is around to temper Amy's worse impulses (that fucking musical) and if they give Lane a storyline.
