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

    Please let an eigth season go on !! I am currently waiting to view season 7 but know I’ll want to see season 8 (if you make one) ……

    I love, love, love the Gilmore Girls and I agree with the others one more season at least will be wonderful. I know that Lauren and Alexis want to do something different but the are fantastic actresses, I have seen other movies that they did and they were great. I honestly dont think one more year or season will set back their careers. They are two very brilliant and talented actresses. As a matter of fact the entire cast was well chosen.

    what people don’t realize is that lauren and alexis are both at a point in their lives where they need to move on and do different things. they both sincerely loved making the show, but its time for them to “mature” their careers, if you will. as fans, you should understand that and be greatful for the 7 years that were given to you.

    After all the of use have worked for your a just going to stop it that is disappointing use should go one last time and go out with a bang e.g. charmed was ending in 7 but terrible ending so they did 8 with the best ending you could get but end it fully happily not on a hanger or any normal episode make us believe isn’t finish and put a smile on our faces do it for all use have worked for don’t through it away now!!!

    Gimore Girls is the one and only show that is heart warming to watch. So many shows out there now are about sex, reality, and just nothing. The Gilmore Girls is truely about something the plot of a mother and a daughter life, it down to earth and gives us hope that our genertation is more then just clubs sex and drugs. I would be truely upset if it left the air with neither one of them finding true love….because it will leave the watchers without hope.
