Goodbye Gilmore Girls, Hello Heartbreak

Gilmores_3

So the big news is that The Gilmore Girls is nearing it's last season, as the show's creators have jumped ship. I personally never really liked the show, but I find myself distraught over the news. Mainly, because I have a feeling Gilmore fans are very co-dependant and will not take this information lightly.

No question, among the Gilmore community, there will be a lot tears, a lot of blame foisted on ex-boyfriends, plenty of Wiccan pray circles, an unhealthy amount of chocolate cake, mandatory book club meetings, plenty of aromatherapy, and nonstop Build-a-Bear workshops.

You are such a strong group of people and you've been through so much together, from Rory's rebellion to Lorelai's rollercoaster relationship. But you've managed to pull through with all the wit and candor of a personalized pillow. The hard truth is that there will never be another show set in a quaint B&B town, filled with pleasantly plump people and a mother daughter duo who's banter can only be stopped with a fying pan to the skull. No they were one of a kind. But they're not Gilmore Girls anymore, they're Gilmore Women and you need to let them go. Believe me, their spirit will live on in the souls of shows like The Ghost Whisperer, Beautiful People and Starting Over. And those shows will never get canceled.

You're a little premature with your obituary. The creators aren't coming back for the 7th season, but all the cast members are signed for - and expecting - one more year.

I'm sure there's a snarky comment from you somewhere, but even the AP says the show will likely be picked up by the CW.

At this point the show has pretty much overstayed its welcome. I still watch out of loyalty but this season has been 2/3 weak and 1/3 a shadow of its former self.

You have to admit it was original, and had more wit than most of the stuff out there. I'm proud to be a G.G fan. You probably watch reality tv.

The CW already picked the show up for another season as it will continue its 7pm slot on Tuesdays allowing Veronica Mars to have a decent lead-in allowing more viewers to get pulled in.

It is said ASP is leaving but David Rosenthal who wrote some of the wittiest episodes from seasons 2-6 is taking over and hopefully will be able to re-develop the show further. He's also using the series finale script ASP wrote in which Rory will graduate from Yale.

Gilmore Girls have been all downhill since 4th season. Kicking Jess outta the show... BIG mistake! they were perfect together! after that its been one pathetic attempt at a relationship after another for Rory. And Lorelai... I always wished for her and Luke to finally hook up, but once they did.. they became so boring together! The writers couldn't pull something better for the most waited for relationship of the show since season 1?!?! I mean seriously, if the show is picked up by another station, it needs major improvement.

I really hate Logan. Rory could do soooo much better and he is wooden.

NO!! i love them. But it is true that the current season is flop. But I love still my life needs Gilmore.

I do not think that the show will go to shambles without ASP on board however it will not be the same without her, after all she was the creator. I am hoping for another season after season 7 to wrap up the show and leave it out on a good note. If it ends too quickly I believe they will be rushed to fit in everything that has been planned for the show. It will still end as somewhat expected because the new writer is using the script for the last show.
