Well, it’s official. GILMORE GIRLS is indeed coming to an end. It would seem that the CW and Warner Bros simply didn’t pony up enough money to lure back stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel for a shortened 13 episode season. In an official statement, the CW and Warner Bros Television announced:
“Announcing the final season of Gilmore Girls is truly a sad moment for everyone at The CW and Warner Bros. Television. This series helped define a network and created a fantastic, storybook world featuring some of television’s most memorable, lovable characters. We thank Amy Sherman-Palladino, Dan Palladino, Dave Rosenthal, the amazing cast led by Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel as well as the producers, writers and crew for giving us this delightful gem for the past seven years. We would also like to thank the critics and Gilmore fans for their passionate support and promise to give this series the send off it deserves.”
Are you prepared to say goodbye to Stars Hollow forever? Does Alexis Bledel really think that shedding her ‘Rory’ persona thirteen episodes early is going to save her fledgling film career? Does anyone else find it ironic that GILMORE GIRLS — a series that spent seven years preaching the values of community and friends over financial status — came to an end purely based on dollars and cents? Is it possible that the end of GILMORE GIRLS is the best thing that’s happened to VERONICA MARS all season long? Post away with your thoughts below.
