Shortly thereafter, Ted Sarandos, the Chief Content Officer of the streaming giant, said this of a potential second revival, that they hope it happens. They obviously loved the success of the show, and the fans loved how well it was done. It delivered what they hoped.

The network added that the Gilmore Girls told the story of a close relationship between a mother and her daughter, “Best friends first.
