This article contains spoilers from Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life.
#GilmoreGirls fans around the world went into meltdown when Netflix announced that it was bringing back our favorite show for a one-off revival and we continued to freak out when said revival hit Netflix back in November 2016. Gilmore Girls: A Year in The Life filled our fast talking, food loving, coffee drinking hearts with joy and it was almost as if we had never said goodbye to the folks of Stars Hollow all those years prior to the revival.
Having Lorelai, Rory, Emily and Luke back in our lives was a dream come true — albeit a vey brief one. At only four episodes long, #AYearInTheLife was over before it had even began and that heart-stopping conclusion wasn't the ending that diehard fans had pictured. After waiting eight years to have the conclusion that series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino had envisioned, Rory and Lorelai's final four words left a lot to be desired and the final moment of A Year in The Life was more of a cliff-hanger and less of a conclusion.
However, it appears that all hope is not lost as Netflix's Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos reportedly told UK’s Press Association that “very preliminary” talks are underway with Warner Bros. for more episodes.
“We hope [it happens]...We obviously loved the success of the show [and] fans loved how well it was done; it delivered what they hoped. The worst thing is to wait a couple of years for your favorite show to come back and for it to disappoint you, but [series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and exec producer Dan Palladino] sure delivered and people were really excited about more. And we have been talking to them about the possibility of that.’

What Would A Second 'Gilmore Girls' Revival Even Look Like?
The possibilty of a second revival means that viewers could once again be taking a trip to Stars Hallow, possibly to find out what Rory decides to do about her pregnancy. Although Rory has always been career-minded, she has always appreciated all of the sacrifices that Lorelai made for her — it's possible that Rory will make the same sacrifices for her child.
Also, as the A Year In The Life format was riddled with inconsistencies — such as the content of each episode overlapping despite the change of the yearly seasons — could we see a return to a standard string of episodes, much like the original WB series?
I think us Gilmore Girls fans would appreciate one final season to wrap things up properly over the course of several episodes. Or better yet, just let Gilmore Girls continue as a regular #Netflix series, following the same format as Stranger Things and The OA with eight episodes released each year. I'd definitely be up for that! Either way, Lorelai and Rory's story isn't over yet.
