Will Lauren Graham appear on 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' next season?

Lorelai and Susie would be BFFs—change our minds

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has seen many a Stars Hollow transplant. 

Kelly Bishop, Milo Ventimiglia (#TeamJess) and Chris Eigeman are three Gilmore Girls alumni who have crossed over to 1950s New York from 2000s suburban Connecticut. But where exactly is Lorelai Gilmore, a.k.a. Lauren Graham? 

Considering The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 5 will be the show's last hoorah, we cannot help but wonder when the beloved coffee connoisseur, fast-talker and DragonFly Inn owner will join forces with our favorite standup pioneer, Midge Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan).  

Graham would be a perfect fit for Midge's crew, and we think she and Susie (played by Alex Borstein) would most likely talk themselves into a stupor. 



Will Lauren Graham guest-star on 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' season 5?

Ever wonder why Gilmore Girls always ends up on the list of shows like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel'? IT's because both hits are from the same creators: Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino. 

If the fast-talking girl power wasn't enough of a hint, now you know the reason behind the crossover. So it only seems fair that the star of Stars Hollow would also make her way onto the Amazon series. 

Although nothing is set in stone, the husband-and-wife duo is certainly open to the idea of a cameo from Graham. 

"I’d love Lauren to be on, but it just needs to be the right part," Sherman-Palladino told US Weekly

Her husband echoed that sentiment and said they don't want Graham's possible appearance to be out of the blue. “We want them to have the right parts if they do it, so it’s not just a cameo. We want it to mean something. So we found a really good thing for Milo. You know, we’re hoping to have a couple others pop up.” Fair enough, but we are coming into season 5 with high expectations now!

Who else does the duo have their sights on? Kurt (Sean Gunn)! Now, we're incredibly sold. 

Time will tell how things will play out for Midge and her close-knit crew, but in the meantime, catch up on season 4 and all its big questions, like "Why did Mrs. Maisel get fired?" (Oops!) The show is available to stream on Prime Video.
