In the future you should modify your original post rather than reposting - multiple posts like that are frowned upon. If you have any questions just head to the community centre and they will help you get some answers Smiley

Go Go "Gilmore Girls": Graham and Bledel to Leave Stars Hollow

Carole King once said, "Where you lead, I will follow," but I think we've reached the end of the road with those two girls called Gilmore.

According to a source inside the production, there will not be an eighth season of Gilmore Girls, which will wrap up its run this May.

While there have been rumors of a possible eleventh hour contract renegotiation with stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel (who, according to reports, have only decided to sign their contracts if the other does as well), purported (and disastrous) Season Eight storyline plans, and petitions to save the show, it seems that it's not in the stars (hollow or otherwise) for any future seasons of Gilmore Girls.

According to my source, staffers on the Warner Bros. Television series have been told that the series will not be going forward and have begun to look for other employment next season. The same holds for the actors: Melissa McCarthy, who plays chef Sookie, recently signed on to co-star opposite Christina Applegate and Jean Smart in ABC comedy pilot Sam I Am.

Hell, Gilmore Girls' showrunner David Rosenthal is allegedly looking for work as well.

For fans of the show, at least we got five fantastic years with these girls and two not-so-good ones (you all know which ones I'm referring to), but I wouldn't trade those pop culture-laced memories for anything.

First of all I don't like how this person began their little article. They used something they deemed familiar to anyone who has seen GG to get fans's interest but it's not an indepth quote from the actual show. Second, Carole King SANG and WROTE the song not "said" so this person shows no respect to the person mentioned.

This person re-states rumors we've all ready heard and worried about with the actors/actresses looking for other jobs. Nothing new.
I for one don't blame the people involved with the show for looking for possible jobs just in case. It's only senseable so it's not really shocking... in case it really doesn't happen you want to have a back-up.

Most importantly nothing has been announced officially from the CW yet so any "sources" aren't 100% reliable.

One thing I did notice most of all from the above article is how they ended it by bashing GG's last two seasons. Any true GG fan would see that sure the first five season were better but the last two season can't be pushed away like they didn't matter. There were some really good moments and episodes from Season 6 and 7 this person failed to realize that and pushed their own opinion on everyone else.

In conclusion this person may be attempting to intimindate the support of GG's 8th season and stall efforts in their own personal desire to end the show. This person is therefor not a realiable source themself and I question their so-called source.

Don't give up no matter WHAT people are saying until we know for 100% sure! Thanks!

I will for sure have mine coming this week...I just keep trying different things with the photo...but will just take a photo and post! Smiley I really enjoyed reading the above piece. And you're right...no matter what people say or what the word is on the street, we've got to keep on working and supporting season 8! The minute we let up, the minute we lost our chance! So...keep up the great amazing work!

If interested, because I had a request to repost this, here are a few sigs that people can use if they wish. I have a few more but can't seem to find that post right now.

Heidi Could you please refresh my memory on what exactly you're doing with the photos, where you're sending them? So sorry, I went back pages upon pages to find it...but can't seem to figure out where it is. I apologize for having you post the info. again. I will do my best to get something together by the end of the day tomorrow...hopefully that won't be too late!

Long Live Gilmore Girls!!

That is such a cool shirt stillstanding! 

Heidi is sending in the album tomorrow guys so get your pics in.  They are going to be done filming in like a week, so we need the album to get there before they are done.  Email the pics to Heidi and/or post them on this thread and she is then making it into an album to send to the CW or the cast, i don't know who exactly, but she said she got almost 50 pictures, so the album should turn out really good!

I'm not sure of the source on this one... I don't really believe it.  Some blogger wouldnt be the first to post the big news...

I think you're right.  For example, the first report of 7th Heaven's new cancellation came from Kristin (who wasn't Wrongda this time) last Friday afternoon.  If the situation were that bad with Gg, she'd have posted about it in her fan Q&A on Monday because she's had a mad-on against Gg since she was banned from the set over the Pissy Polly rumors.  (How do I know she was banned from the set?  Well, Samantha Harris interviewed Lauren and Paul Anka about TRPA and Jason Harris interviewed Lauren for Because I Said So.  *Sometimes,* it's actually easy to read between the lines.)

Anyway, I went to the source blog to check it out because tvguide.com used to have a column called Ask the Televisionary.  I don't think that this guy is the same Televisionary from TVG.  This one says he's a junior development exec in the biz but gives nothing else, no show credits, nothin' in his bio -- he's just another blogger hiding behing a pseudonym as far as I'm concerned  That means that the blogger has no credibility with me whatsoever -- even if the rumor were to be true.  Hell, at least we all know who Perez Hilton is.

And junior exec?  Sorry, but that's sort of the same thing as a gopher/gofer.  For all we know, if the guy *is* in the biz, he could be a plant by one faction or another at the network, at the studio or among the actors' peeps.  But I went ahead and read a few of his other blog entries anyway to get a sense of who he is, what his blog is like -- he's clearly NOT TV Guide's Televisionary -- and really, even if he *is* in the biz as a junior exec, he's divulging no real expertise or knowledge of the industry.  He's expounding on his own opinions, which are as fine as it goes, but his entries are clearly NOT of the first-hand variety.  He's mostly commenting on articles from Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, various newspapers, etc.  In that sense he's absolutely no different from any other blogger or message board poster and thus much of his credibility rides on making opinions, NOT reporting news or rumors.  Heck, I've gotten better first-hand information about a lot of shows by attending Comic-Con panels (it also helps that I have an entertainment newspaper reporter acquaintance out here in the midwest that I email and talk to from time to time.  Problem is, he's a friend of Milo's so I have to take everything he says about Gg with not just a grain of salt, but a huge salt lick, so I'm not pressing him for Gg info and that's pretty much *all* I'd press him for because other legit sources are just plain faster.)  

So IMO, this guy's post has no credibility.  It comes from a dubious source and there are no corroborating reports from legitimate sources.  I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that this guy's post is bogus. He does commentary, not news, so a sudden bit of rumor coming from him sounds highly suspicious to me.  

BTW, this is a big part of the reason why I use my same handle, ShutUpRob on every MB I post to and sign my name -- I hate anonymous bloggers on principle.

I've talked in private with other posters to certain message boards and at alt.tv.gilmore-girls, where I'm the FAQ-keeper and we're sort of crunching the conflicting reports, the Entertainment Weekly article about salaries that *strongly* suggests that the gals are very miffed at Kyra Sedgwick's $250K per episode salary for The Closer -- I would be too if I were on a broadcast show doing higher ratings and nearly 50% more episodes per year *and* making the same company a heck of a lot of money on successful DVDs, BID -- and triangulating the lack of any formal announcement of Lauren and/or Alexis leaving the show.  There's a lot of information to process out there and while I"m not going to speak for everyone I've spoken with, I just going to say that *I* strongly suspect that we're all being used through all of these conflicting reports through both legit channels and through the rumor mills.

IMO, with respect to the Mandate, this doesn't change anything.  IMO, we want our opinion known that we want the show to continue for at the very least one more season.  That requires at the very *least* the presence of Lauren, of course, but either way, it doesn't change a thing.  We keep posting that we want season 8, we keep writing letters and well, we start making it known that we want the decisions to be made sooner rather than later as waiting until the Upfronts, two days after the season finale, would just be ridonkulous.  Not just in terms of the amount of pressure on how much we want the show to come back, but also on the ever-increasing pressure for these last few episodes of the season aren't overhyped and unable to satisfy anyone (exccept, well, me) due to absurdly high expectations.
