Original Story (November 12): Did you finish your Netflix binge of Gilmore Girls yet? Well there is a beacon of light for those who have been recently teased into falling in love with the ladies from Stars Hollow all over again. ATX Television Festival in Austin, TX, released their first wave of panels with one very special reunion on the docket for 2015!
The Gilmore Girls, Alexis Bledel, Lauren Graham, and creator Amy Sherman Palladino will come together 15 years after the show’s initial airing to relive the days spent in the town square, at Yale, and with all of those well bred Connecticut men!
Could you think of anything better for Lauren Graham to say in response to the news than, “There’ll be coffee, right? Can’t wait!”
Amy Sherman Palladino’s enthusiasm for the reunion will certainly make fans of Gilmore Girls‘ hearts sing with delight, “So after years of peace and quiet these lunatics have chosen to get the chattiest chicks in the world back under one roof? Really? Okay. You asked for it… Gilmore was the highlight of my ridiculous life. I can’t wait to sit with these unbelievable broads and relive a time where sleep did not exist where stress and coffee were mama’s little helpers and where we all dove into the deep end together to make something weird and very very cool.”
The ATX Television Festival will run from June 4 – 7, 2015. Joining the Gilmore Girls reunion is the Dawson’s Creek Writers’ Room. Those in attendance will hear from creator/showrunner Kevin Williamson, showrunner Greg Berlanti, and producers/writers/assistants Jenny Bicks, Julie Plec, Rob Thomas, Liz Tigelaar, Paul Stupin, Rina Mimoun, Maggie Friedman, Anna Fricke, and Dana Baratta.
The ATX Television Festival is entering its fourth season in 2015 and the festival has a unique focus on “history, where it is now, and where it is headed.” This is a must attend for anyone interested in the behind the scenes work that goes into television. (And Gilmore fans, alike!)
