For seven years we tuned into for the fast talking highs and lows with the Gilmore Girls, and when the show ended in 2007 fans were left saddened and a little disappointed that the shows biggest couple Luke and Lorelai, never got their long awaited wedding. But eight years later it looks like there might be a glimmer of hope for us Gilmore addicts!
Before the upcoming Gilmore Girls reunion panel (eek, cannot wait!) at the ATX Television Festival, Scott Patterson a.k.a. Luke Danes has been making the press rounds, and it was during a chat on the Gilmore Girls Podcast that he revealed this information about a possible on-screen reunion:
There are talks going on at the moment...I can’t really go into any details, but there is some activity. I’m hopeful, and I’m in. I think it would be a big event, and I think it would be a great fan celebration.
Oh. My. Gilmore!
Patterson then went on to tell The Huffington Post that there had been "conversations" about a reunion and "maybe even a movie" adding that he doesn't "want to give the fans false hope." Sorry Scott, too late. I'm in full fledged Gilmore-panic mode!
As amazing as a Gilmore reunion would be, it would also be laced with incredible sadness given that core member of the series, Edward Herrmann, who played Richard Gilmore, passed away from brain cancer in January of this year. Any wedding between Lorelai and Luke would no doubt be a tearjerker of epic proportions if her father wasn't there to give her away.
Hopefully we hear more about a potential Gilmore Girls reunion at the ATX Television Festival which will be held on June 6th and will involved most of the shows cast and crew, including: Amy Sherman-Palladino (Writer/Executive Producer), Lauren Graham (Lorelai), Alexis Bledel (Rory), Kelly Bishop (Emily), Scott Patterson (Luke), Liza Weil (Paris), Keiko Agena (Lane), Danny Strong (Doyle), Jared Padalecki (Dean), Matt Czuchry (Logan), Jackson Douglas (Jackson), Sean Gunn (Kirk), Todd Lowe (Zach), Liz Torres (Miss Patty), Yanic Truesdale (Michel), John Cabrera (Brian).
