The 2015 ATX Festival was a fan’s dream, with stars from their favorite TV shows, both past and present, coming out to celebrate the one thing everyone in attendance had in common: their extreme love of television.
The stars were more than happy to come talk about the shows their fans know and love them for. The Gilmore Girls reunion was definitely the premiere event of the weekend (and yes, we have those photos below). Series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, along with almost everyone from the show’s original cast (minus a noticeably absent Melissa McCarthy and a sorely missed Ed Hermann) showed up to greet their fans, reminisce on the good ole Gilmore days and answer questions during a brief audience Q&A session. FanBolt’s Editor-in-Chief Emma Loggins was in the crowd for the reunion, so look out for her recap of the event soon!
Other awesome events and panels for fans included a Friday Night Lights tailgate and screening, complete with a surprise performance from Gilmore Girls’ band Hep Alien; an Empire panel, with co-creator Danny Strong and co-executive producer Wendy Calhoun; a chat with The Vampire Diaries creators Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson and more!
