Great things could happen in the Gilmore Girls Universe. Lauren Graham, the actress who portrayed Lorelai Gilmore for years, certainly had a busy year. Thus, several other actors are connected to the project. A few months ago we theorized that the stars might align Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life 2, a second season of the 2016 Netflix revival, partly because the past year has been eventful for several key cast members. Now Lauren Graham has apparently confirmed that talks could be officially underway.
Before publishing her book, HDid I already tell you that?, Lauren Graham met New Beauty for a photo shoot. During the shoot, Graham dropped a little bombshell. The famous Gilmore girl Alum revealed that she had plans to meet up with Amy Sherman-Palladino to chat about it Gilmore Girls and what might come just a few weeks later.
Graham continued that the timing would have to be right for her to sign up for another season. Still, she seems pretty confident that there’s more to Lorelai Gilmore’s story, and she’s ready to share it with the world. When exactly that could happen is still in the stars.
While Graham provided the first concrete evidence that a second season is a definite possibility in the not-too-distant future, she stayed close to revealing how the story might play out. It’s easy to get an idea of what might happen Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life 2 when it is produced.
If we had to guess, we’d say much of the season would focus on Rory Gilmore’s love life and foray into motherhood. Presumably, fans would finally find out who the father of Rory’s baby is once and for all, although we’re pretty confident Rory’s kid is a Huntzberger. Kirk Gleason would certainly have another wild business model up his sleeve, and Taylor Doose would come up with another complicated Stars Hollow initiative.
As for Emily Gilmore, we’d like to think that she’s enjoying a more relaxed life, far removed from the social expectations of high society. Perhaps Rory moved out to be close to Emily so she could arrange for her child to meet her great-grandmother. Lorelai and Luke Danes had enough romantic drama in Season 1 Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, so hopefully any argument is business and not romantic. Apart from that, a love triangle between Jess, Rory and Logan. seems imminent given Jess’ final glimpse of Rory in the Netflix revival. But we don’t necessarily want to see it.
While Graham shared that she was dating Sherman-Palladino, there hasn’t been any official announcement regarding a second season of the Netflix revival. Neither Netflix nor Sherman-Palladino have commented.

However, over the years several key cast members have expressed interest in returning for more episodes when asked. Both Scott Patterson, who portrayed Luke Danes, and Kelly Bishop, who took on the role of Emily Gilmore, have announced they would be returning. However, Bishop seemed unsure if this would happen.
Milo Ventimiglia, who played Stars Hollow villain who won Rory’s heart, Jess Mariano, completed his work This is us and has suggested that he would consider working with Sherman-Palladino again. Several other players have expressed a desire to see Stars Hollow again. The team just has to make everything possible as it seems.
