Will there be a Gilmore Girls Movie? Maybe a Gilmore Girls eighth season? If it were up to fans of the show, the WB and CW series never would have been taken off of television in the first place. But two years after the last episode of Gilmore Girls was aired, fan sites are starting to report many rumors about a new season for Gilmore Girls and a Gilmore Girls feature film. The only problem with these rumors, is that they are unfortunately only being linked to fan sites, and that though the rumors are being spread around, there may not be any real substance behind these ideas.
One of the big reasons that rumors still follow Gilmore Girls around the internet and the industry, is that the show ended without what die-hard fans would call a real conclusion. Gilmore Girls was on the WB and CW networks for seven seasons, covering 154 episodes of the show. In the final episode of season seven, called Bon Voyage, the main characters are still left in a bit of a lurch, and though it can be assumed where the main characters might end up in the end, nothing final takes place on screen to really bring closure to the show or to the millions of fans that tuned in every week to watch Gilmore Girls.
It is because of that ending that fans have been clamoring for some time to get them to put out an eighth season of the show, and hopefully get Gilmore Girls picked up by another network. The CW decided to move on without Gilmore Girls, and had felt that the show had runs its course on the network. The problem though, was that because some things were left up in the air as the final episode drew near, the cast and crew didn’t get an honest chance to wrap up all of the storylines on the show. Maybe with one more episode everything could have been settled, but fans have wanted an entirely new season in order to enjoy the show for another year.
When it was on the air, Gilmore Girls was one of the best written shows on television. It didn’t receive the recognition that some of the bigger networks get for their shows, but that didn’t mean that it wasn’t noticed by viewers. Many critics loved the show, and it has helped to put some of its stars on the map. The two main stars who play mother and daughter on the show (Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel) have found quick fame afterwords. Graham is on Broadway doing Guys and Dolls, and Bledel has found a lot of success in movies. Hopefully there could be a Gilmore Girls movie int he future, but the stars are not aligned to make that happen at this point.
