Gilmore Girls: Officially Cancelled, No Season Eight!

Lorelai & Rory to say goodbye?With two weeks to go before the network upfronts, we have some long-awaited and sad news regarding the fate of CW’s Gilmore Girls.

The CW has released a joint statement from the network and Warner Bros. Television that says “Announcing the final season of Gilmore Girls is truly a sad moment for everyone at The CW and Warner Bros. Television. This series helped define a network and created a fantastic, storybook world featuring some of television’s most memorable, lovable characters. We thank Amy Sherman-Palladino, Dan Palladino, Dave Rosenthal, the amazing cast led by Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel as well as the producers, writers and crew for giving us this delightful gem for the past seven years. We would also like to thank the critics and Gilmore fans for their passionate support and promise to give this series the send off it deserves.”

Rumors have gone back and forth for months on whether an agreement could be reached with key cast members so that Gilmore Girls could return for another season. There was even a rumor earlier today that negotiations had stalled and it looked unlikely that they would resume. It appears that rumor was true.

Once sure that the series was not returning, CW likely wanted to announce the news immediately so that viewers would be more likely to tune in to watch the final two episodes.

Will the series finale on May 15th be a fulfilling way to close the series? Does this ensure that CW’s Veronica Mars will be renewed? Stay tuned! TV Series Finale home page

HeyyHeyy :) I really really want there to be a season 8 0f Gilmore Girls it is the only show that i recored when i am at school and watch it when i come home. I really think that it is quite wrong that they left us all hanging to see what happenes between Loreli and Luck. and i really really want Rory and Logen to get back to gether they are ment to be. Season 8 will probably be the best season ever because people have waited for ages so they will get loads of views and people will just like love it to see what happenes between like everyone. OMG please pretty please can you have a season 8 !!!!!!

I AM MORE THA.N UPSET THE THE GILMORE GIRLS HAD ENDED SO ABRUPTLY. I WANTED MORE CLOSURE WITH LORELI AND LUKE DANE CHARACTERS. DID ZACH DECIDE TO GO ON TOUR WITH THE BAND AND LEAVE LANE AND THE TWINS AT HOME. DID LUKE GET MORE TIME WITH HIS DAUGHTER. WHAT ABOUT RORY AND LOGAN. RORY SHOULD HAVE MARRIED LOGAN, OR HAD MORE CLOSURE. WHAT ABOUT PARIS. DID RORY MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION GOING ON THE BUS TO TRAIL OBAMA. DID SOOKIE HAVE HER 3RD CHILD AND WHAT IS IT. WHAT HAPPEN PAULANKA THE DOG OF LOREALI. THE DECISION TO END THE SHOW SO ABRUPTLY MADE ME REALLY MAD. AND NOT WANT TO HAVE FAITH IN ANYOTHER TV SERIES NOW. THERE NEEDS TO BE REUNION SHOW PROMPTLY. HOW COULD LAUREN GRAHAM AND ALEXIS BLEDEL BE SO SELFISH NOT TO SIGN ON FOR SOME MORE SEASONS

Hey, I love Gilmore Girls and I am soooooooooooo disapointed that there is not going to be a season 8!! I would have loved for their journeys to continue. For me, when I watch it, its like entering another family’s lives. I just really hope they bring a season 8 to Australia — they have soooo many fans here, they can’t leave us hanging on the season 7 ending!!!!!!!

I was looking so forward to having another season with one of my favourite shows. I would like to see Rory settled I think with Jess – they have similar interests with writing etc., and of course Lorali with Luke and seeing her relationships with both her mother and luke develop into wonderfully happy times. Have one – one hour finally closing tieing up all the characters lives – it would be wonderful having closure that puts things in the right order for the viewers.. thanks for having me vent my concerns and feelings.

I’m very disappointed in the final episode of Gilmore Girls…they left Laurali and Rory’s character completely hanging. What happened with Logan and Rory? Was that it, Logan just leaves? You can’t do that, its not fair, Gilmore Girls never just ends like that. And are Laurali and Luke together or apart? This isn’t fair I need to know what happens next…PLEASE DO A SEASON 8!!

Hi there,

as many others, I’m disappointed. The ending doesn’t fit. We watched Rory develop and now we know nothing about her. We don’t know anything about Luke and Lorelay, they just kissed and…?

I loved the series, but the end just isn’t worth it. They deserve better.

Maybe you just wait whether Obama makes ist and then go on when Rory comes back.

Whatever you do, just do it and don’t leave us faithfull fans with that crap of an ending.

Greetings

Jack

I’m from Germany so I happen to just have seen the final episodes… This is so disapointing and so evil to all the fans! We’ve stayed tune for 7 years now and really felt GG to be part of our lives. The fans deserved a satisfying ending. But now? Rory has a crappy job at an onineMag, Logan is gone for no reason (that doesn’t fit Rorys character at all…) and Loreley still hasn’t learned to “communicate” (most of her relationships broke up because she had stupid secrets). There was NO character development at all! At this state – without Loreley (and Luke) have actually changed, one can imagine them to break up soon again…
It would have been so easy to do a proper ending (without being “schmaltzy”), but in my case the last two episodes of all the seven seasons ruined it all. I even don’t like the 2 girls anymore. In the past I loved viewing all DVDs out of my GG collection but now they only make me angry and even the older episodes are ruined because of the crappy ending.
