For a second time, the comedy-drama series 'Gilmore Girls', featuring the lives of Rory and Lorelai Gilmore, has potential to return.

Though fresh hope was given recently, its co-creator Amy Sherman-Palladino refused to categorically commit to a Gilmore Girls revival.

In an initial interview, Amy said:

"We didn't go in there with any intention of wanting to do more. There were no discussions between us and Warners or us and Netflix of having anymore. We all went through this journey thinking we just wanted to make it a very special event. So that really is where we are right now, because we’re so tired and exhausted and the kitchen still smells like butter.”

Amy admitted that when they pitched Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, the goal wasn’t to continue on with season 2.

“We pitched this as close-ended. We pitched it as: ‘This is the year in the life. This is the way it was ending.’ … Netflix and Warner Bros., we all went into this sort of saying that this was it,” she said.

However, she went on to offer a glimmer of fresh hope saying:

"You know, it's the kind of thing where we hadn't planned on doing the Netflix movies... never say never".

Marvellous Mrs Maisel co-creator Amy added that if the show was to return, she would want the original cast to reprise their roles with it.

She added:

"It would just have to be the right time for everybody. 'Cause it was [in 2016]."

One key theme throughout the series was Rory's ambition to attend an Ivy League college and become a journalist, while Loralei's longing to open her own inn with best friend Sookie, played by Melissa McCarthy, was also central.

Of course, as is with any rom-com, Loralei's tight relationship with local diner owner Luke Danes, played by Scott Patterson, and Rory's romantic escapades through her school years also a featured heavily.

And Scott Patterson is one actor who Amy can certainly count on to make a reappearance, after he recently told US Weekly that he wanted fans to finally see Loralei and Luke tie the knot.

He added that show bosses had to give viewers the chance to see Rory and Jess, played by Milo Ventimiglia get together, too.

"You must deliver on these things, and this is what people want," he said.

"Fans have spoken. It's not like they're shy. They let their feelings [be] known. And this is exactly what they want. So I don't see what the problem is."

The show first aired back in 2000 and ran for a hugely successful seven seasons before finally coming to an end in 2007.
