More 'Gilmore Girls' episodes could be on the way, tease cast and showrunner

After almost a decade, 'Gilmore Girls' fans were treated to four brand new feature-length instalments this weekend. Netflix's 'A Year in the Life' bought back Lorelai and Rory, as well as a multitude of familiar faces, for a year in Stars Hollow in the aftermath of Richard Gilmore's death. 

The new long-awaited episodes finally gave original showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino, who departed before the comedy-drama's controversial seventh season, a chance to end 'Gilmore Girls' the way she had always planned.  

But it seems those famous final four words might not be as final as we thought...

Sherman-Palladino has teased the potential for more 'Gilmore Girls' on Netflix, depending on how well received 'A Year in the Life' is. 

'We really had a very specific journey in our minds, and we fulfilled the journey,' she told The Hollywood Reporter. 'To us, this is the piece that we wanted to do. And the whole thought about, is there more, is there more, is there more – this has to go out into the universe now. We've got to put this to bed. And then whatever happens, happens.'

So far feedback from the new episodes has been resoundingly positive. And fans who are already up-to-date will agree that there is definitely scope for more, after that bombshell of an ending. (WE KNOW.)

It seems the cast themselves are open to more, too. 

'We really don’t know,’ said Alexis Bledel, when we asked her if this was really the end for 'Gilmore Girls'. ‘We are interested in presenting something really special. The last thing we want to do is exploit that opportunity.’

'We just want to make sure we treat it with care,’ added Lauren Graham.

While Scott Paterson, who plays Luke Danes, has said: 'It’d be nice to do it every year. Maybe every two years, do a three-month thing, do four more chapters. It was easy to do. It was fun.'

We like your thinking, Butch. 

'Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life' is available on Netflix.
