Prepare to freak out…ATX Television Festival has confirmed a Gilmore Girls reunion is happening at its 2015 gathering. That’s right, we’re returning to Stars Hollow!
The ATX Television Festival is known for reuniting cast of beloved shows past and has done so for the likes of Boy Meets World, My So Called Life, Roswell and many others, and next year’s festival will see the return of Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman Palladino and stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel! (Sorry, no guys have been announced as of yet, but mayybbee if we wish hard enough…)
Gilmore Girls star Lauren Graham’s “There’ll be coffee, right? Can’t wait!” response to the news was classic, while Amy Sherman Palladino joked,”So after years of peace and quiet these lunatics have chosen to get the chattiest chicks in the world back under one roof? Really? Okay. You asked for it.
“Gilmore was the highlight of my ridiculous life. I can’t wait to sit with these unbelievable broads and relive a time where sleep did not exist where stress and coffee were mama’s little helpers and where we all dove into the deep end together to make something weird and very very cool.”
How great is that news?! And that’s not even all of it!
Another awesome reunion that’s a first for the festival is the Dawson’s Creek Writers’ Room. The unique experience will include creator/showrunner Kevin Williamson, showrunner Greg Berlanti, and producers/writers/assistants Jenny Bicks, Julie Plec, Rob Thomas, Liz Tigelaar, Paul Stupin, Rina Mimoun, Maggie Friedman, Anna Fricke, and Dana Baratta in attendance. This room launched many of these writers’ careers to include creating their own series and showrunning many of our favorite shows.
“Dawson’s Creek and Kevin Williamson changed my life and gave me a career. Nothing
could be more exciting then to be back with so many people I respect and admire than
my fellow writers from the show… and our amazing creator, Kevin.” said showrunner Greg Berlanti of the news.
