‘Gilmore Girls:A Year in the Life’ Season 2: More Episodes on Netflix | TVLine
It’s happening again. Maybe.
In the wake of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life‘s runaway success, Netflix has begun exploring the possibility of a second revival. The streamer’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos reportedly told UK’s Press Association that “very preliminary” talks are underway with (presumably) Warner Bros. for more episodes.

“We hope [it happens],” he said. “We obviously loved the success of the show [and] fans loved how well it was done; it delivered what they hoped. The worst thing is to wait a couple of years for your favorite show to come back and for it to disappoint you, but [series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and exec producer Dan Palladino] sure delivered and people were really excited about more. And we have been talking to them about the possibility of that.’

Buoyed in large part by the November release of A Year in the Life, Netflix added a record-shattering 7.05 million subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2016.
When asked about the possibility of returning to Stars Hollow, Sherman-Palladino told TVLine last December, “I don’t rule anything in my life out. When people were talking about a Gilmore movie [after the original series ended] I was always like, ‘That’s not going to happen.’ But I wasn’t going to say no. Because… why say no to anything?”

That said, the auteur — whose Amazon pilot The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel drops later this month — strongly hinted that Another Year in the Life (possible working title?!) was not be imminent. “We’re all very tired,” she conceded. “Dan and I have been in a Gilmore cocoon for a year and a half. It’s been very intense. So we’re stepping back now.”
Not getting my hopes up, but it's nice to know they haven't ruled out the possibility of more and that Netflix was happy with the revival.
