When “Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life” came out in November, fans of the series were thrilled to have the opportunity to return to Stars Hallow and check in on Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel). But since the Netflix revival only had four episodes, there has been talk about another return. And if the stars had anything to say about it, the show would end differently from how it did.

Last month, Deadline hosted an event for Emmy contenders, wherein Graham and Bledel were able to address questions about the Netflix revival. “That’s not an ending, that’s a cliffhanger!” Graham said. “It took me a minute, but I eventually loved it… But it’s not an ending.”

Graham was talking about the infamous four words, in which Rory told her mother that she was pregnant. The 50-year-old actress clearly felt as strongly as some fans of the show, who endlessly questioned what would happen to the mother-daughter duo after the revelation.

While Bledel was quick to support Graham on this, she was not eager to confirm a second season. “I think, for me, it comes down to what story we’re telling,” she said. “I don’t think we could’ve anticipated that this would happen, so I think we’re still reeling from that.”

Graham, on the other hand, said she was not sure “if there is a need to do more.” She shared that she would never want to feel like “Gilmore Girls” overstayed its welcome. Nevertheless, if all things go well, it is likely that Graham will reprise her role yet again. She admitted that she would be willing to play Lorelai “until [her] dying day” if she could.

And while Graham shared that creators Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino have a penchant for another revival, she also cast in her doubt. “There’s probably a way to keep these characters alive,” she said. “[But] I don’t know if it’s the best thing for them.”

Sherman-Palladino might have her eye on another season for Lorelai and Rory, but she has gone on the record with Vanity Fair to say that she and her husband are focused on “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” for now. Meanwhile, Netflix has also gone on the record to state that the company is very much willing to collaborate with the “Gilmore Girls” team for another revival.
