'Gilmore Girls' Creator Didn't Watch Series Finale
'Gilmore Girls' Creator Didn't Watch Series Finale
Writer and producer Amy Sherman-Palladino attended the TCA summer press tour in order to answer questions about her latest project, The Return of Jezebel James.  However, as the session wore on, the discussion took a natural turn towards Sherman-Palladino's recently canceled series, Gilmore Girls.

The series finale aired in May 15, but Sherman-Palladino said that she did not tune in that night.  At first, she joked that she had been intoxicated when the final episode aired, but then was quick to state the true reason why she declined from watching the series finale.

''I couldn't watch it because it wasn't going to be my ending.  It wasn't going to be what I had in my head,” she said.

The final season of Gilmore Girls ended with Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) having breakfast at Luke's (Scott Patterson) diner, relishing their last moments together as Rory was set to leave Stars Hollow for her new job.

Because this was not how Sherman-Palladino envisioned the series would conclude, she confirmed the possibility of a movie that will depict the kind of ending she had in mind. 

"We've talked about maybe, sometime in the future, doing a song-and-dance together.  I rule nothing out,” she said.

Out of the show's seven seasons, Sherman-Palladino and her husband, Daniel Palladino, were only involved with the first six.  Early in 2006, the couple cut their ties with the show after failing to reach an agreement with the CW regarding their contracts.

Some months after the couple announced their departure from Gilmore Girls, the Hollywood Reporter said that FOX had ordered several episodes of a new sitcom created by Sherman-Palladino.  Last December, she announced the show's official name, The Return of Jezebel James.  The new comedy series is slated to premiere on FOX next year.  The show stars Parker Posey (Superman Returns) and Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under).
