Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life ended with Rory's announcement that she was pregnant, something that shocked her mother Lorelai. This was the ending that showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino envisioned for the series, but she is open to doing more episodes if the audience wants.
Sherman-Palladino and her husband and co-creator Daniel Palladino left the show after season six due to contract conflicts and they weren't too happy with the way Season 7 ended. The Netflix revival gave them an opportunity to end the show the way they always wanted.
"We really had a very specific journey in our minds and we fulfilled the journey," Sherman-Palladino told 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."
Scott Patterson, who plays Luke in the series, is open to doing short instalments every year or two. "It'd be nice to do it every year. Maybe every two years, do a three-month thing, do four more chapters. It was easy to do. It was fun. It was really rewarding and people got a sense that if this was going to be the last thing that we now have some closure."
The ending of the Netflix revival has fans divided, with many not happy the show left off without revealing who is responsible for Rory's pregnancy. Fans have also been left wondering if Rory and Jess will end up together, as many believe Logan is the baby daddy, but he won't be a part of Rory's life going forward.
The revival left fans feeling content and frustrated, and it would make sense for the show to come back with more episodes to answer the number of questions fans have raised about what the future has in store for Rory and Lorelai.
