We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: however arduous each TV revival proves, fans will inevitably clamor for another continuation. Netflix’s Gilmore Girls in particular ended A Year in the Life on the cliffhanger creators always intended, but may now be in “preliminary” conversations for another followup, reports reveal.
There’s no two ways about the fact that Hulu’s take on Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale is going to feel horribly relevant in its April premiere. That’s never more apparent than in a new featurette for the Elisabeth Moss drama, which explores the rise of misogynist dystopia “Gilead.”
One wouldn’t necessarily think of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale for a primetime Super Bowl ad, but Hulu’s Elisabeth Moss drama is already breaking down societal norms. See for yourself, as a fresh trailer teases what was once forbidden, and the misogynist hellscape Offred now lives in.
Everything we’ve seen from Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale has seemed equal parts timely and enrapturing, but a first trailer for the Elisabeth Moss-led series very much seals the deal. See for yourself, as the world becomes a dystopian, misogynist hell that Offred is intent on surviving in the first footage.
It could be time yet before Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale gets a first trailer, but the Elisabeth Moss-led continues to outdo itself in casting. Newly revealed among the major cast is Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel, in a role presumably more sympathetic than Rory Gilmore.
Unlike other revivals, Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life seemed expressly designed to return its prolific cast for one last stay in Stars Hollow. That is, until those oft-referenced four final words left further questions to answer, something Netflix now seems to be teasing over Twitter.
Less than a week will see the Gilmore Girls dropping a year’s worth of reunion in time for a post-Thanksgiving binge, as the four-part Day in the Life catches long-lost fans up on all of Stars Hollow. The new trailer brings back even more familiar faces from the oddball town, so kick off the final countdown to next Friday!
It’s been years in the making, but we’re ready to spend A Year in the Life with the Gilmore Girls, even if it takes the span of a single evening to binge through it all. Return to Stars Hollow, as our first official trailer for November’s Netflix revival comes with all the coffee you can drink!
Take a moment, and think of all the coffee you’ve consumed in the last decade. Now double it, triple that, and you might be somewhere in the neighborhood of Rory and Lorelai since Gilmore Girls first premiered 16 years ago. Don’t take our word for it though, see for yourself in a new retrospective before Netflix’s A Year in the Life.
This past weekend saw Netflix breaking with its traditional release strategy, to debut Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down in the first of multiple installments. That owed to chaotic production, but where Gilmore Girls bosses hoped to release the four Year in the Life revival specials in equal installments, Netflix believes fans “would’ve killed us” to break with tradition.
