Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is speaking out about the Netflix revival ahead of its November release.
Palladino received some criticism from fans who were upset that all 90-minute episodes would be released at once instead of in a staggered release.
TVLine reports that Netflix’s Chief Content Office Ted Sarandos is actually to blame for the decision.
“If we would not have [released them] all at once the fans would’ve killed us,” he said with a laugh. “I’m petrified of those fans; they are so passionate.”
Palladino plead with Netflix to release episodes one at a time.
“I told them I was going to hang myself with a shower curtain if they put them all out at once, and they said, ‘Wow, OK,’” she joked at TCA, before elaborating on her thought process. “It’s such a journey and it’s such a build to the last four words… However, you don’t always get what you want. The good outweighs the bad in the sense that this is a wonderful place to create things and do things in a different way.”
She does however hope that fans won’t try to spoil the series for those who haven’t gotten around to watching it.
As for the final four words, you’ll have to avoid Twitter until you watch the series yourself because you know people will be posting them all over.
Palladino, who exited the show in its final season, said she never saw the 7th season but asked friends about ideas she had for the revival.
“I called them and went, ‘We’re thinking of doing this. What steps on it?’” she said revealing that nothing really affected her ideas except “ONE THING.”
“There was one thing I wish… I’m not going to tell you,” she said. “It was the only thing where I was like, ‘Ah, I’ll go a different way.’”
What could this one thing be? Was it Lorelai and Christopher’s wedding? Rory’s engagement to Logan? Lane’s pregnancy?
“Nothing against the seventh season,” she added, “but any writer who was so emotionally connected to something and then pulled out of it is going to find it very hard to go back into that world and not feel like you either want to slit your own wrist and die slowly in a swimming pool, or be angry or be jealous.”
We can’t wait to see what she’s got in store for us on November 25th!
