Gilmore might get eighth season

If Gilmore Girls continues for another season after this, it might be called Gilmore Girl.

Over the summer, Gilmore actresses Lauren Grahan and Alexis Bledel made it clear at the TCA that they were thinking of leaving the CW drama. New show runner David Rosenthal may have turned the situation around, at least in the case of Graham.

Graham now is considering returning if the show is picked up for another season, according to TV Guide's Michael Ausiello. Costar Bledel is still on the fence, and her reluctance has prompted the CW and Gilmore producer Warner Bros. TV to created a backup plan.

If Bledel doesn't return, the eighth season would revolve around Graham's character Lorelai and longtime on-again-off-again beau Luke Danes (Scott Patterson) as they raise their new child, and Bledel would make guest appearances. If the season-seven finale turns out to be the series finale, Rosenthal may end it all with the couple married and expecting.

Gilmore has held steady in the ratings on the fledgling CW net's first season, averaging a 1.7 rating with 3.4 million weekly viewers.

Please! PLEASE! Do another season! I know it's been a while, but you have to get everyone together and do at least ONE more! I used to LOVE this show and I saw an episode today and remembered how much I wanted to see more! It would be a HIT!

Please make another episode of Gilmore girls, it's so fun to watch and it will be a shame if it just ends with rory going of and lorelai and luke just together, but not married or with another child :( maybe if they start a new season or even a movie they can do twomor three years on or something! Lots of people would love this!

I love gilmore girls and Rory and Lorelai have this "click" that makes the show amazing and hilarious to watch yeah it wouldnt be the same without her but Lorelai is funny by herself as well. and i hope they dont end the series because it is a great show. but luke and Lorelai should def. end up together in the end. i just really hope that Rory does return for the 8th season.

Gilmore Girls will not be the same without Rory. I really hope that she decides to do a 8th season. Lorelai and Lukes story wont fully fulfill the show. It wouldn't be as good without her. I want to see something happen with Rory and Logan. Lorelai and Luke couldn't really make the show good. Without Rory GG will not be the same and I think there will be less viewers. Please Alexis, dont stop now!!!!!

they should just do one more episode. where its 2 years later. luke and lorail are married with a kid. Sookie there with her family . rory coming back from here job. that would be cool

I'm glad that the show ended well. It was very open and anything could happen. You leave thinking that Lorelai and Luke were together, and you know that anything is possible for rory.



I don't think that it would be right to continue the show without rory. But they could probably pull it off with her comming for guest appearances. And I've always thought there were three gilmore girls Lorelai, rory and Emily. Therfore there would be no need for changing the show's name.

I am glad they let the show end with dignity. It seemed to me that after the fifth season they started trying to retool the show to make it more like One Tree Hill and such. This became very apparent this season when the creator left and the show became unwatchable for the first half of the season.



While I think it would be a shame to continue on without Rory the residents of Stars Hollow are colorful enough that it might be nice to see 2 seasons of story lines rotating around them (with a new show title of course). Why not, it worked for the Andy Griffith show. :)

I was shocked to find out this was the last season for Gilmore Girls. This is one of the shows that I have really enjoyed watching over the last few years. There aren't many shows on these days that are suitable for the whole family to watch but this is one of them. I really hate to see it go especially with so many things unresolved. We want to see Lorelei with Luke and Rory with someone. If your going to go off the air then at least go off with everything ending right. Better yet let's see Luke and Lorelei have a new baby and let's watch that child grow up.

I can't believe what i'm now reading!!!

Why won't Lauren or Alexis do the 8 and final season?

This finale is made on the rush and this show won't have the credit it deserves.

Hire new producers or fire those that don't like to work anymore in GG. I don't believe Alexis or Lauren stoped loving their carrer show to the point of rushing the end and risk this AMAZING and INVOLVING story known around the world even in Portugal.

I can't believe all this happened in the last 4 weeks. This isn't a smart or wise decision for both the actresses, producers or even the studio and networks.



PLEASE GIVE THIS SHOW THE DESERVED FINALE AND CREDIT!

Ahh, so there is still a chance of Lorelai and Luke getting together, unless the script was made out before they decided to cancelled.

If they do have a Season 8 w/out Rory, I think it would work if she made guest appearances; once she went off to college and didn't live at home anymore, the whole dynamic of the showed changed anyhow. This wouldn't be much different. There is so much going on with the town and it's residents, a season 8 to wrap everything up would be awesome!

It's a great show, but I don't think it's a good idea to make an 8. season, just to make one. There's always the possibility of disaster, and I too can't imagine Gilmore Girls without Alexis Bledel.

I absolutely love the Gilmore Girls and yes there the main two characters, but its the town, the people and all there peculair things they get up to each week and the special commentaries esp by Lorelai. I truly hope that Alexis at least commits to a season where they tie it all up and we can all think that there all living happily after all. After 6 seasons, people get invested in such wonderful characters and hopefully she will remember that this is the show that help her become a star.

Gilmore Girls is my ultimate favorite show!!! Since season one I have been waiting for the day to see Luke and Lorelai in complete and total love and married. Rory is important but not as important as Lorelai. Lorelai is the witty one who brings the funny to the show and her and Luke together... WOW.. a perfect match. They absolutely have to go with the show for an 8th season followed by a 9th and 10th an 11th and so on. I would have to make sure to watch the show every week if Lorelai and Luke were married and had a child.. Bye Bye Alexis.. And HELLO L&L and their new baby... I have every season on DVD and would be crushed if the show didnt go on. If i had to think of the perfect couple it would be L&L.. And if they make an 8th season(they better!!) they have to include alot of romantic scenes to show everyone that true love is beautiful. especially between L&L.. Please everyone.. Comment to show everyone how much you care about the show. It MUST go on!!!!!!!

oh come on you gotta admit... L/L is the best.... EVERYONE LOVES THEM AND WILL ALWAYS... They just need to get back together that's all... and an eigth season with or without Rory will be AWESOME.... L/L is ALL we need... them and their heat.... they need to put more action on the show... lol... i know it's not that kinda rating, but hey our imagination can't do everything. lol... well i just want an eigth season with ALL L/L... ;-)

Well, why not another season? Because of the writing slant, I, a longtime LL fan, actually wanted Lorelei and Chris together. The writers did a hack job pulling them apart. If the point was to create the tension, they really should have infused a bit more hesitation and confusion into Lorelei's character. Granted, it was assumed she was merely rebounding and testing the theory, "the grass is always greener", almost seeing what life would be like. Still, I couldn't help rooting for what I knew was going to end. That being said, the show can end in no other way. It's LL married and pregnant or on their way to both. Him revealing it wasn't that big a shock. Like most shows, this one will either end here or go one more season and watch ratings decline. Writers find it difficult to retain an audience's attention once the tension is gone. Still, there's plenty to be explored if it goes on. Should it go on without one of the Gilmore Girls? Well, fans would still watch despite any moaning and groaning, especially if AB promises to make guest appearances. After all, you can't have her working on the Hartford Courant. You know she's at least moving to New York. Some voice overs and scenes during sweeps and the show is good to go. The quick rhetoric of the two as they make exchanges would be missed but Luke's bewildered expressions half the time could fill the void. Any insanity that ensues from a newborn and Lane's twins and Jackson's trio of kids (though sookie might be bye-bye) would be funny. Ok...I've rambled on long enough and I barely remember what I wrote. Good night and Good luck!

I really hope they get an eigth season too. I absolutley LOVE the show. I have all the seasons so far on DVD and just cant get enough of it. I'm with the person who wrote the comment below me. I'd love to see a awhole season on Luke and Lorelai too. That would be fantastic. I hope they do get an eigth season also.

omg!!! i so totally think they should do an eigth season... i LOVE L/L and if there was a whole season on them and their cute kid.. hopefully boy... i would die... i would do anything to make it happen. i hope Lauren decides she wants to do it. man i can't get enough of L/L... i was so bummed when they made Lorelai cheat on Luke... i stopped watching... but if they make an 8th season about L/L they will have one of their #1 fans back in-tune... im still waiting for L/L to get back together... well i just hope they have an 8th season... LL always and forever baby!!! =D

Episode 17 or season 7 just aired and there is now a one month break before the final 5 episodes of the season. I got the distinct impression from episode 17 that the show is winding down, and I suspect the last five shows of the season will be it. I'm still a fan of the show but it's getting tired and I feel they've gone as far as they can with it. All good things must end. . .

however much i love gilmore girls, i dont think it would be the same without rory, which is why i think they should give it a nice send off after this season. This is what i think; Rory and logan should get married ;) and although i did like lor and chris now that theyre broken up she should get back together with luke. what id like most to see though is lorelai and her parents NOT fighting, trying to have a normal relationship... sometimes it feels as though whatever emily and richard (esp emily) do lor gets mad. think she should just start thinking more from their point of view, and at least try to understand (dont have to agree) where they come from. thats kinda a reason as to why i like rory best of the two, and would prob not watch the show if it went on without her.

Gilmore Girls MUST go on!! I like Rory but feel that Lorelai is and always has been the heart and soul of the show. I think that many people would love to see a season 8 with Luke and Lorelai back together. Rory can drop in from time to time - whatever. As long as GG comes back with LL!!!

I would really understand Alexis if she leaves the show, I mean 7 years is a loooong time for an actrice as young as her.

I would rather prefer a nice series finale than an 8th season without Rory although I wold really miss the characters (especially Lorelai).



But still hoping for an 8th season with Alexis ;-)...

As a huge 'Gilmore Girls fan', it would be a major let down to those like me who love the show so much. I love LG and AB, but it would be a big loss for the show if AB doesn't sign for an 8th season. However, LG is an excellent actress an could probably hold her own. I would still watch, but sadly miss AB.

I hope Alexis decides to come back for an 8th season cause the show would not be the same without her but if the CW does pick up the show the just Lauren because I would definitely still watch it Lauren is so great. The CW should definitely pick it up either way.

I completely agree with makiki_89!!! -I defently DONT hope im gonna see Lorelai and Chris getting married??? How lame! -and (sorry americans) how typical americans to do that! The most amazing tv show ever, 2 crazy, loveable females and, they are mother and daughter, doing fine on their own. ...but nono, Lorelai has to end up with the father of her child, because then God will be happy!!!? I SO hope thats not right, even more than I dont hope for an eight season, without Bledel. Earnestly..!!!

shame, the best series on tv ever! its one of those who should not end, but it had to come, it can't go one forever, then it will loose its point! and it will become weird ! and to much, and it sounds like a okay way to end it, one can always hope for a marriage between Rory and Logan ;) that wouldn't be all bad!



the Danish girl ! :p

i am really sad about this.i mean, no gilmore girls?i know i am a new viewer, didn't start watching til the second half of the sixth season (i bought the dvds of the first seasons, so no worries), but i still have valuable advice.there has to be more gilmore...with both gilmores in it!!!harry potter is ending at 7 which already is making me sad.don't let gimlore!!!oh, i know.we should do a petition...hmmmmm.i'll think about that.

Well there are a lot of ifs and buts here! As this is supposed to be the Gilmore Girls ... so without Rory it would seem strange ... but stranger things have been known and have worked fine! If ... Luke and Lorelai get married and have a child ... it could be a girl ... and voila ... you have another Gilmore Girl! Not to mention April ... Luke's daughter ... she will be back for the weekends and holidays! So she could be an honorary Gilmore Girl ... the possibilities are endless! The thing is to keep it interesting ... and Luke back with Lorelai will be very interesting!!

i have to agree with missgilmoregirl...what the heck was Rosenthal thinking when he opened his big pie hole. I hope they end the show then. I rather it had ended with a bang then being blown out. Oh wait, there's no real anticipation, we already know the ending...lookie...what a shocker...

ah i cant beleive it, i always read spoilers but irealized it ruined the show for me, so i stopped and then accidently they have shown up twice now, that have ruined the whole season and show for me. i found out lor and chris break up and now they say luke and lor will have a baby and get married. they really should put a label on here saying they contain spoilers
