TV: Is this the final season for Gilmore Girls?

Could this be the last season for Gilmore Girls? While talking about her upcoming film Because I Said So, GG star Lauren Graham told ComingSoon.net that she’s unsure whether or not the series will continue after this year.

I’m not surprised to hear this, and I’m sure most GG fans aren’t either. Even before the Palladinos split, the show seemed to be going in a strange direction, and things are really hit-and-miss now under new show runner David Rosenthal.

Here are the highlights of the Graham interview:

“I don't know (if this will be the last season) because it has been expressed to me that they would like another season, but then there's nothing that's happened toward that. I'm not sure. I don't know what would make my decision clearer," Graham said. She goes on to talk about how Alexis Bledel has mixed feelings about returning for another year as well. She also said she’d rather now work on a project in which she is not the lead, calling her work schedule “difficult.”

Graham seems in favor of ending the show on a semi-high note.

“I would rather leave people feeling like 'I wish that they would have continued' than leave people feeling like, 'wow they really did it beyond when the time was,’” she said.

If this is the season finale, Graham said she'd be alright with where the story ends.

"If you took all the other elements away like money and job security and stuff like that, Alexis' character is about to graduate from college. That to me seems to be the place to end it because then what? Then she moves back to town. That seems perfect, you know. It makes sense and that would be an event and then you sort of see that character goes off and does whatever she's going to do. I don't know. It's very weird," she said.

So what do you think? Is it time to say goodbye to Stars Hollow? Gilmore Girls returns to The CW with new episodes Jan. 23. Check back here for episode reviews/recaps and more news.

Kill it. No, wait it's already dead.

Well, I think "already dead" is a bit harsh. It's not dead yet. Just limping a little. What's more, years from now, we may look back at the last seasons and see them as classic, as classic as the first seasons. We'll have to see how well David Rosenthal & co. can finish off the current story. He has his work cut out for him.
