Gilmore Girls: An Abbreviated Season Eight?

Lorelai & Rory to say goodbye?As we reported here, the fate of CW’s popular drama Gilmore Girls is still up in the air. Though many believe that the current season hasn’t measured up to past years’ episodes, a lot of fans don’t want to let it go just yet. From all accounts, the CW would like to bring it back but at various times the two Gilmore girls (Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel) have expressed interest in moving on to do other things.

Now, word has leaked out via TV Guide that negotiations have taken a very interesting turn. According to Gilmore sources, just a day before the wrap of season seven, Graham is allegedly warming to the idea of returning for an eighth season — albeit a shortened one. This news comes just a week after the news that Graham asked for changes to be made on significant season finale scenes.

There’s no word on Bledel’s feelings on returning for another 13 episodes but an abbreviated season could be an ideal solution for both actresses. This would give the producers time to wrap up any loose storylines but wouldn’t present as large of a commitment from the actors who want to do other projects.

For now, the season finale (possibly series finale) will air on May 8th. Rory’s longtime idol, CNN correspondent Christiane Amanpour, will have a cameo. We should know the show’s fate either before that date or shortly thereafter. Stay tuned! TV Series Finale home page

    One more round please. I would love to see closure to the relationship with Luke and Lorelai (?marriage), also the good bye between Logan and Rory was too abrupt and questionable at that. My own daughters got me hooked on the show 2 years ago and I have watch ever since, I am hopelessly a dedicated fan and would love a closure season 8!

    i know that both lauren and alexis want to move on and do other things. alexis was great in the Sisterhood movies, but a reunion movie would be cool. it would just tie up all the loose ends and prove that Rory and Logan were meant to be together. please make a movie! (but could u please make it where all the original cast would be in it) after that we will all be quiet and let go of our Rory Logan Luke Lorelai moments… because we will know it was all meant to be and it had a happy ending!
