This year, Netflix came in and saved the day with yet another very successful, very crowd-pleasing revival. The four-part miniseries Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life delighted fans of the original series, but it was much too short by many accounts and left fans with at least one burning question. Those disappointed may be in luck, though, because it seems like Netflix just teased some more episodes.
Warning, there are spoilers ahead for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. At the end of the season, it was revealed that Rory was pregnant shortly after Lorelai and Luke finally got married. Right after the reveal was made, the season ended. A pretty big cliffhanger, no doubt. Netflix recently took to Twitter to sort of play with fans emotions, teasing who the father of Rory's baby could be. The photo is a reference to April's science fair project that helped her discover Luke was her biological father.
"Where's an eighth grade science fair when you need one? #GilmoreGirls"
The two most likely candidates for Rory's baby daddy are Logan Huntzberger (Matt Czuchry) and Paul (Jack Carpenter), her boyfriend in the revival series. The Netflix tweet also sort of jokingly points to the random guy who was in the Wookiee costume from a party. Now, it would seem borderline cruel for Netflix to tease fans with this tweet unless they had plans of doing some more episodes at some point, even though it was only intended to be these four episodes. But money talks and by all accounts, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life was a big success. We don't know how big of a success since Netflix doesn't release actual numbers, but a success for sure.
The big reveal at the end of the Gilmore Girls revival was actually something that had been in the works for quite some time. Series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino actually intended for those last four words, shown in the final episode of this last season of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, to always be the plan. However, she wasn't able to fit it in when the show wrapped up its initial run on The CW. She left Gilmore Girls as the showrunner before the final season, which prevented it from happening. The initial run of the series ran for 153 episodes from 2000 to 2007, initially on The WB and later on The CW, once the network was rebranded.
At the moment, Netflix has not made any kind of announcement regarding more episodes of Gilmore Girls and the four-episode revival was intended to be a bit of closure for fans, even if it was left frustratingly open-ended. Still, it is hard to imagine they wouldn't do something to resolve the cliffhanger. Maybe even just one, final episode or Netflix feature-length special. For now, you check out Netflix's tweet for yourself below and speculate amongst yourselves about who the father of Rory's baby is.
