Netflix boss discusses possibility of ‘Gilmore Girls’ revival second season

'Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life' debuted on streaming service last week

Netflix has discussed the possibility of a second season from its recent Gilmore Girls revival series.

Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life debuted on the streaming service last Friday (November 25). It picks up eight years on from the original series and opens with Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop) dealing with the death of Richard Gilmore, Lorelai’s father. Edward Herrmann, who played the role of Richard, died in 2014.

The revival has been met with mixed reactions, with some viewers taking to social media to claim that Rory (Alexis Bledel) and other characters were “kind of awful sometimes”.

After the finale ended with a cliffhanger, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos has said that he is “open” to the possibility of a follow-up, but that it would depend on the desire of creator Amy Sherman-Palladino.

“We’re definitely open to it if Amy is,” Sarandos told Pedestrian.tv. “It’s a surprisingly international show and we’re thrilled with how people have enjoyed the new show and introducing the old show to an entire new generation of viewers.”
