Could we possibly be Stars Hollow bound?!

Are we being treated to another Gilmore Girls reunion? 

We'd all fancy a sojourn in Stars Hollow, cup of coffee from Luke's Diner at hand, but the fate of our favorite nostalgic TV shows has been in limbo. 

After Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premiered on Netflix in 2016—our mouths agape after that unbelievable cliffhanger—we were lead to believe that Lorelai and Rory's journey had come to a close, despite the fact that they had more to tell.

Now, however, fans have a little bit of hope that the mother-daughter duo might make a return—and put our minds at ease with all of that unfinished business.  

Is there going to be a 'Gilmore Girls' reunion?

Lauren Graham, the fan-favorite, fast-talking Lorelai Gilmore, just released an essay collection about her life in show business. With all the hype surrounding the book's release, it led us to wonder whether the series is really done for good.

In a new collection of essays, Graham revisits special moments throughout her career. 

In a new chat with New Beauty, Graham revealed that there aren't any plans in place—yet—to revive the series, but it's not entirely out of the realm of possibility. 

"I’m making plans to see Amy [Sherman-Palladino, Gilmore Girls creator] in the next few weeks," she revealed in her November interview. "It’s always a fun prospect to think about and talk about. It used to be more of just talk, but having done it now, we know it’s possible. I think I feel such a responsibility and so much love for the story that I would just want to be sure it was the right time."

Perhaps when the timing is right (which we hope is sooner rather than later) we can return to our favorite Connecticut small town for a visit with our leading ladies, a few of the most iconic TV characters out there. 

So, just in case it wasn't clear, when it comes to a reunion, we're all in.
