Netflix has closed a deal for four 90 minute Gilmore Girls episode/movies, led by original creator Amy Sherman-Palladino. Netflix has yet to officially announce this, so it could be a strong rumor, but a few news sources have already started reporting it, so they must believe it to be true. Talks with the cast have just begun, but Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, and most of the major cast are said to be on board. Will Melissa McCarthy return? We’ll have to see.
Sherman-Palladino left the show before the final season due to contract negotiations, so this gives her a chance to finish the show as intended.
