Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’s premiered to polarized fan reviews. However, there is no denying that the show still maintains it cultural currency. The miniseries picks up with life in Stars Hollow and continues to follow the lives of Lorelei and Rory Gilmore as they navigate their complicated mother-daughter relationship. The show brought back original stars Lauren Graham and Alexix Bledel who play the famed mother and daughter, respectively. The reboot also brings back former teen heartthrobs Jared Padalecki and Milo Ventimiglia.

Since its premiere on Netflix back in 2016, fans have been curious when the second installment will be released, mixed feelings notwithstanding. However, according to TV Line, coordinating the cast’s schedules has proven to be challenging for the production team.

“There’s no [obstacle] behind it except for lives and people doing [other] things,” creator Sherman-Palladino told TVLine. “Lauren [Graham] is in two series right now and Alexis is in Handmaid’s Tale. They all have things… But if that [kismet] moment presents itself again [we’d do it] in a hot second.”
