Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino may not have worked on the seventh and final season of the hit feel-good series, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t impact how the story plays out in the upcoming revival!
According to TV Line, Palladino opened up to reporters at TCA about how that last season of the series influenced her approach to the upcoming Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life. Interestingly enough, the showrunner revealed that she still hasn’t watched the final season that aired on the CW all those years ago.
Instead, Palladino reportedly said that she looked to close friends who had tuned in and bounced her revival ideas off of them.
“I called them and went, ‘We’re thinking of doing this, What steps on it?’” explained Palladino according to TV Line.
The showrunner said that none of the “big themes” she wanted to tackle ended up needing to be tweaked in lieu of what season 7 entailed, but she did take liberties with one storyline.
“There was one thing I wish…I’m not going to tell you,” teased Palladino. “It was the only thing where I was like, ‘Ah, I’ll go a different way.’”
We’ll definitely be interested to find out what thing Palladino ends up switching up when the revival finally premieres!
Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life is set to be available to stream on Netflix beginning November 25.
