This article has the most up-to-date info on the status of Gilmore Girls Season 8 as we continuously monitor the news to keep you in the know. Netflix has scheduled the premiere date for a new season for November 25, 2016.
Gilmore Girls is an American comedy-drama television series that centers around Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter, Rory. Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, the series stars Lauren Graham as Lorelai and Alexis Bledel as Rory. The show originally aired on the WB (the CW for season 7) and was cancelled after its seventh season on May 15, 2007. However, in 2015 Netflix picked up the series for a limited release of four 90-minute episodes.
Lorelai Gilmore is a single mother raising a teenage daughter named Rory. The two live in a fictional Connecticut town of Stars Hollow that is populated by colorful and eclectic people, with the main worries of ambition, education, work and family. When Rory graduates from high school, she attends Yale University, much to the satisfaction of Lorelai’s appearance obsessed parents.
The series had a stable fan base, has received several award nominations and won one Emmy Award, but that did not stop the CW from canceling it after the seventh season. It’s possible that the decision to cancel the show was based on the fact that there was not much more to write about, since Rory was out on her own and wouldn’t be returning home for good. However, to the great delight of the viewer, Netflix has recently announced that it will pick up the series for four episodes, which will start at least eight years after the series ended. Each episode will represent a different season of one year, which leaves for endless possibilities. It has not yet been announced when the four-episode special will air.
