Palladino is co-writing and co-directing the four 90-minute revival episodes alongside the series’ creator/his wife, Amy Sherman-Palladino.
When asked if the new episodes would be the end of Gilmore Girls, he said not necessarily:
We just never say never.
The cast is not killed in a terrible explosion at the end. Spoiler alert! It’s sort of a wacky world out there. It’s more difficult logistically than it would be for Amy and I to come up with stories. We don’t know if this is the ending because we never thought Gilmore Girls would come back in any form. But it’s a new world out there and there are new ways to experience things. Who knows? It might be a radio broadcast next. Just us, a couple of mikes, a Foley artist.”
Lauren Graham, who plays Lorelai Gilmore, added:
To read the final episode, it’s not totally final.”
A premiere date for the reboot series has not been announced yet.
