Can’t wait till the new Gilmore Girls series?
According to show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, the Netflix revival will feature a very confused semi-millennial by the name of Rory Gilmore.
Paladin told TVLine that Rory has a little bit of a “quarter life crisis” when A Year in the Life begins.
It’s this idea of, you hit [your 30s], you did everything right — you went to college, you had the good grades, you worked really hard — and yet somehow life isn’t turning out the way you wanted it to turn out.
And because the world is changing I think that’s something a lot of very well educated kids are going through.
They’re turning around going, “I did it. I did the homework. I did the finals. I did the whole thing. Why am I not getting where I need to go?”
Preach Amy/Rory. Preach.
Who knew we’d all end up like super-genius Rory in the end?
As for the other main women, Kelly Bishop’s Emily is recently widowed.
“What does the death of a husband mean to a woman who had a life very specific to her all of these years,” Palladino said.
Lauren Graham’s Lorelai on the other hand is described as a “single-yet-coupled independent woman who has had guards up all her life to protect her daughter and to protect herself.”
With a grown up daughter she’s wondering, ‘Where am I now? Where’s my path? Where’s my comfort?’
