Did Netflix Just Tease Another Season of “Gilmore Girls”?
To say that Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life left us hanging is the understatement of the century. We might have thought we were getting all the storylines wrapped up in a neat bow while we were watching, but that sneaky Amy Sherman-Palladino had one final trick up her sleeve that changed everything. And now, a month after the four-part revival premiered—just when we were starting to get used to the idea that Rory is pregnant, and we might never know who the father is—Netflix has to go and shake things up yet again.
The latest? Netflix tweeted this vague and seemingly random photo Wednesday afternoon with the caption, “Where’s an eighth grade science fair when you need one? #GilmoreGirls.” The tweet is, of course, a reference to when April discovered that Luke was her father via her eighth grade science fair project in the original Gilmore Girls series. Though in this pic, the eighth-grader is Rory’s kid, and it looks like the candidates for father are Logan (natch), “A Guy Dressed in a Wookie Costume,” and the forgettable Paul.

We’ll give you a minute to stop screaming.
And while any of these men could theoretically be Rory’s potential baby daddy, the tweet seems to confirm the theory that pegs Logan and Jess as the Christopher and Luke of the next Gilmore-girl generation: Jess isn’t on the board because, even though he’s been ruled out as the biological dad, he ends up filling the father-figure role for Rory’s baby in the way that Luke did for Rory when she was growing up. And of course, there’s the biggest question of all: Does this mean another Gilmore Girls revival season is in the works? And is there a chance that the new episodes would take place in the future, with Rory’s child at middle-school age?
Oy with the poodles already! Netflix, we demand answers.
