It hasn't even premiered yet (or technically finished filming), but I know you're wondering what I'm wondering, fellow greedy TV watchers: will there be a second season of the Gilmore Girls revival? Well, you're in luck. Because, if Scott Patterson's interview on the Gilmore Guys podcast is any indication, there just might be. Leave it to the usually pessimistic Luke Danes to give us all hope. How very evolved of him. Love to see that character growth.
All right, just in case the TV gods smite us all and it doesn't happen, and before I get you so hyped up that you come after me with pitchforks and torches, let me clarify. I'm generally trying to avoid murderous rampages in 2016. Patterson did not say this was a definite or that the show executives have even considered it. He simply inferred, from where he knows his own storyline is leaving off, that there's the possibility.
There’s still room to go [with Luke Danes’ storylines], still room to grow. There’s not necessarily a cliffhanger, but there is. There’s room for more. It didn’t end. But maybe it did… People have been intimating that they’d like it to continue and that there’s room for it to continue and we’ll see how this goes and how successful this is… I don’t know. I would hope that there would be more. It was a blast doing it.
If you want to hear those glorious words come out of Patterson's mouth with your very own ears, you can listen to the podcast below:
Honestly, I think the last thing that Patterson or any of the Gilmore Girls cast and crew has to worry about, is the revival being unsuccessful. If that's really one of the only hiccups in the Season 2 plan, then I think worries that it won't be renewed are unfounded. Gilmore Girls is still beloved and wildly popular nine years after going off the air. And, I mean, look at Fuller House. It's already filming it's second season, and it only premiered in late February.
Then again, maybe I'm being too optimistic...
But, probably not. I'd also like to point out, that Patterson brought up there being "more" Gilmore Girls totally unprompted. The Gilmore Guys simply asked the actor if he was satisfied with how Luke's storyline played out, and he was the one to suggest a continuation. So, you know, do with that what you will...
