Gilmore Girls Controversy (again!)

While I’d like to keep my shameless promotion of my podcast at the top of my site all day (see post below), there are more important issues going on in the world of TV. Namely, the fact that there are rumours going around the GILMORE GIRLS creators Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino will not be returning to Gilmore Girls for it’s seventh and most likely final season. According to today’s ASK AUSIELLO, the rumours are just that, rumours. Read for yourself:

Question: I just read that Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband, Daniel, are not returning for next season’s Gilmore Girls. Please tell me it’s not true. My heart is breaking. She had a plan! — Megan

Ausiello: Relax. Breathe. Read. No decision has been made either way. As I understand it, both sides — Team Palladino and Warner Bros. — are still trying to hash out a deal that would bring them back next fall for a seventh season. But I’d be lying if I told you there weren’t some really scary moments yesterday. The situation is extremely fluid, but rest assured the moment I have something definitive to report — no matter what the hour — I will post an update on The Ausiello Report. I am on this story like Emily on the rocks.

  • 04/20 – Series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has opted not to renew her contract and will be leaving at the end of the season — and she’s taking husband Dan with her. As I reported on Friday, the primary sticking point was apparently the length of Gilmore Girls’ renewal. AS-P wanted a two-year pickup, a demand that Warner Bros. refused to meet since Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel are only on board for one more year. Instead, the studio was ready to pay them just shy of $5 million for a one-year deal, an offer that was apparently good enough to refuse. According to a statement released by Warner Bros., “While we are disappointed that Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino have decided not to stay with the show next season, we are very confident that Dave Rosenthal, an experienced writer/producer with the show, will make the transition seamless moving into the seventh year of Gilmore Girls. We want to thank Amy for creating and nurturing this wonderful series for the past six years and giving us one of the most memorable mother/daughter relationships in television history.” Source: The Ausiello Report
