Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has responded to the revival’s cliffhanger ending, insisting that she has no definitive plans for where the story would go in Season 2, but still isn’t ruling out a continuation, per TVLine:
No one is talking about [Season 2] right now. We’re all very tired. I have to finish this Amazon pilot [Marvelous Mrs. Maisel], which I’m very proud of. 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. We’re happy it’s out. We’re happy we can talk about it.
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?”
On where Season 2 will go, renewal permitting:
[Season 2 hasn’t crossed my mind] at all. People have asked me, “What is Rory writing in the book?” And I’m like, “I don’t know what the hell she writes in the book.” [Laughs]
Coyness aside, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will likely return at some point if the first season performs well on Netflix.
