‘Gilmore Girls’ Getting a Reboot — But There’s a Twist

Oct 20, 2015  •  Post A Comment

The popular TV series “Gilmore Girls,” which had a seven-year run on The WB and CW from 2000-2007, is being rebooted by Netflix, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports. But there’s a twist: The streaming service reportedly intends to bring back the show as a series of four 90-minute movies.

The show’s original stars, Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, who played mother and daughter Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, are reportedly in talks to revive their roles for the project, as is the show’s creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino.

“‘Gilmore’ initially ran for seven seasons and 153 episodes on The WB/CW, six of those under Sherman-Palladino before she exited following a contract dispute with the studio,” THR notes, adding: “A Netflix revival would be Sherman-Palladino’s opportunity to not only return to her own series but also to have the final word.”

  1. Four 90-minute movies isn’t a “twist,” it’s a great way to bring back a show for a grand finale — one that was taken away from the fans by a studio that fired the show’s creator, show runner and singular voice (it’s amazing how often this happens, too). I’m proud to be a Netflix subscriber today.
