Guillermo del Toro

Director Guillermo del Toro has spent a few years trying to get Killing on Carnival Row made.

‘Gilmore Girls’ Revival in the Works at Netflix

Gilmore Girls

Back in the olden days, when a show ended it just ended. Maybe once in a blue moon it’d get a last-minute save from another network, but once the actors and producers and writers moved on, that was it. And the end came for all shows eventually, even the really popular ones.

But that was then, this is now. In 2015, a show isn’t really dead until every single streaming service has turned it down, and even then the possibility that it might return at some point down the line remains. Case in point: Netflix has revealed plans to bring back Gilmore Girls for a new season, nearly a decade after the last episode aired.

Not Bridesmaids 2, not Bridget Jones 3, Paul Feig has signed on to direct an original film as a result of his massive 2011 success. The director of Bridesmaids and co-creator of Freaks and Geeks has committed to direct The Better Woman, a comedy at Universal about a powerful young woman whose boyfriend dumps her for an older lady. The younger woman then befriends her elder to figure out what the ex-boyfriend sees in her. Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is writing the screenplay and Reese Witherspoon was, at one point, attached. But no longer. Read more after the jump. Read More »
