Fans Think New Gilmore Girls Episodes Could Be On The Way
The official Gilmore Girls social media accounts have sparked fan theories that more episodes are on the way.
In the past two weeks, the Gilmore Girls Instagram and Facebook accounts have posted two quote images featuring throwbacks to old episodes, which has sent followers into a spin of wild theorising.
The series ran for seven seasons and in 2016 returned for a four-episode miniseries on Netflix.
The reunion miniseries, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, followed Lorelai and Rory Gilmore over a year, from winter to fall.
Though the social media accounts haven't been completely dormant, the new posts have been curious -- both in the same style and a departure from the usual shots of episodes.
The most recent post, from early March, also features a spelling error ('Stars Hallow' instead of 'Stars Hollow') which some have suggested could possibly be an Easter egg, or a subtle joke considering the next line to follow is, "So I'm guessing the spelling test didn't go well either?"
Both quotes are from Episode 4 of Season 1 of Gilmore Girls, "The Deer Hunters" where Rory is struggling to keep up at her new school, Chilton, and receives her first D grade.
"Two recent posts, both in the same style, both from Rory's Chilton days," one commenter wrote. "My theory is as follows. Rory's teaching at Chilton after writing her book. Teaching is a great job for a mom. And Rory would be a great teacher!"
Back in 2017 Netflix's Ted Sarandos, the chief content officer, revealed that the streaming service was in "very preliminary" talks with Gilmore Girls creators Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino about a follow-up to A Year in the Life.
"The worst thing is to wait a couple of years for your favourite show to come back and for it to disappoint you, but they sure delivered and people were really excited about more," Sarandos said. "We have been talking to them about the possibility of that."
But that was YEARS ago and since then things have gone all quiet on the Gilmore front. The stars of the series have also signed on for new gigs -- with Lauren Graham joining the Disney+ Mighty Ducks TV series and Alexis Bledel starring in The Handmaid's Tale.
Similarly, the Palladinos have been busy with the multi-award-winning Marvelous Mrs Maisel.
Currently, there has been no announcement or confirmation from Netflix as to if we'll be seeing a second season of A Year In the Life, but we'll keep watching their Instagram just in case.
