It may be time to start planning your GILMORE GIRLS series finale party, complete with giant Lorelai-esque pizza, endless amounts of coffee and a Pippi Longstocking retrospective to start off the night. TVGuide’s Michael Ausiello is reporting that showrunner David Rosenthal has lined up Rory Gilmore’s (Alexis Bledel) longtime role model for the May 8 season (most likely series) finale. Christiane Amanpour, CNN’s globe-trotting reporter will be making an appearance in the finale, playing herself. In more bad news, Ausiello reports that:
Talks to bring the show back for an eighth season have stalled, and, according to several sources, there’s little hope for a turnaround.
This TV Addict’s completely uninformed take on the situation — Alexis Bledel wants to move on with her life and start working on other projects. Note to Alexis — I’ve seen you act in SIN CITY, THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELLING PANTS, BRIDE & PREJUDICE and TUCK EVERLASTING — it’s too late. For the rest of your career, whether you like it or not, you’re going to be synomous with ‘Rory Gilmore’. So suck it up, enjoy it while it lasts and sign on to GILMORE GIRLS for one final season. Give the fans the final season we’ve waited for. We’ve stuck it out through the entire Luke/Lorelai/Christopher mess. Fans deserve this much!
