Why Gilmore Girls Had to End

Unfortunately greed has caused our beloved Gilmore Girls to come to a premature end, before any of the major stories fans had invested so much time in would have been properly concluded. We will never see a Luke and Lorelai wedding, never know what truly becomes of Rory. It is a great, great disappointment for longtime fans.

From Ausiello:

Why Gilmore Girls Had to End

Gilmore Girls by Mark Liddell/The CW

In the end, they just couldn’t strike a deal.

That, in a nutshell, is the reason Gilmore Girls isn’t returning for an eighth season.

Multiple sources confirm that Warner Bros. recently made one final offer to Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel that included sizeable salary bumps for both in exchange for a shortened 13-episode season. As is now obvious, that offer was rejected.

The good news? The May 15 finale was meant to serve as either a series or season finale. And having just read the script, I can assure you that it is an extremely satisfying conclusion to the series. As I previously teased, it brings Gilmore full circle.

The official statement is below.

“Announcing the final season of Gilmore Girls is truly a sad moment for everyone at The CW and Warner Bros. Television. This series helped define a network and created a fantastic, storybook world featuring some of television’s most memorable, lovable characters. We thank Amy Sherman-Palladino, Dan Palladino, Dave Rosenthal, the amazing cast led by Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel as well as the producers, writers and crew for giving us this delightful gem for the past seven years. We would also like to thank the critics and Gilmore fans for their passionate support and promise to give this series the send off it deserves.”

Much more to come. In the meantime, post your eulogies below. Stay strong, guys.Gilmore Girls comes to a close after seven seasons

Gilmore Girls
The CW and Warner Bros. TV have announced that they will cease production on Gilmore Girls after this season’s final episode, which airs May 15. The announcement ends speculation that the dramedy would return for short, 13-episode run next season intended to wrap the series. The CW and WBTV released a joint statement that said: ”Announcing the final season of Gilmore Girls is truly a sad moment for everyone at The CW and Warner Bros. Television. This series helped define a network and created a fantastic, storybook world featuring some of television’s most memorable, lovable characters…. [We] promise to give this series the send off it deserves.” (Variety)

    I am so sad. I knew it had to end sometime. The series came along just as my daughter was in Jr. High and we have related to so many episodes. My daughter is in college now and our bond is very similiar to Lorelai and Rory. CW will have to reach to find a show that can replace Gilmore Girls.
