Has Rory Gilmore been Goop’d? Gilmore Girls creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino has put out the first page of the script for the “Winter” episode of her Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life TV show revival. Check it out for the answer, below.
The Gilmore Girls reboot drops to Netflix, Friday, November 25, 2016. The cast includes: Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Scott Patterson, Kelly Bishop, Keiko Agena, Sean Gunn, Milo Ventimiglia, Matt Czuchry, Liza Weil, Yanic Truesdale, Jared Padelecki, and Melissa McCarthy.
Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore) tells Entertainment Weekly, that she loved the scripts for the first three episodes so much, she put off reading the final one. Here’s more from EW:
“I didn’t read the last episode for the longest time because I was scared,” she says. “I loved how everything was teed up in the first three and I, carrying the burden of everybody in my mind, was like, ‘Oh God, what’s going to happen?’ And to me, it was deeply satisfying — and also it answered questions I didn’t even think of. I thought, ‘Oh how perfect, wow. I wouldn’t even have wondered that.”
Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore) zipped through the first three scripts. Here is more:
“I read the first three in one sitting,” Alexis Bledel admits. “I was on page 7 or 8 when I remembered: Of course, this is that inviting town where everything is so familiar. And I felt like I was enveloped back into that time and place; wherever it exists in people’s imaginations, I was reminded of where it was in mine. It was so easy to just jump back in and get to work. Which is lucky — because I had to the next day.”
If you missed the “Goop,” joke — it is a reference to Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle website, which is raved about in some quarters and mocked in others. Graham tells the news outlet she enjoyed the first joke of the Gilmore Girls’ revival. “’I just felt like that’s so quintessentially Amy and Lorelai. It was then that I was like, ‘We’re going to be okay’.’”
