Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is an American web television series on the streaming service Netflix. It is a sequel to Gilmore Girls, an American comedy-drama television series created by Amy Sherman-Palladino and starring Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, which ran from 2000 to 2007 on The WB and The CW.
Due to her frequent travels as a freelance journalist, Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel) gives up her apartment in favor of staying at her friends' homes in New York, Stars Hollow, and London. In London, Rory stays with Logan Huntzberger (Matt Czuchry) while working on a book for the eccentric Naomi Shropshire (Alex Kingston). Rory and Logan are in a no-strings-attached relationship, although Logan is engaged and Rory has a boyfriend named Paul. When Naomi fires her and Logan's fiancée moves in, Rory struggles with her lack of a career and her relationship with Logan. She meets with Jess Mariano (Milo Ventimiglia), who encourages her to write her own book about her life with her mother.
Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop) grieves the recent death of her husband and tricks her daughter Lorelai (Lauren Graham) into starting therapy with her. Lorelai has also been feeling lost due to the death of her father, the career progressions of her long-time business partners, and her relationship with Luke Danes (Scott Patterson). Lorelai and Luke have been dating for over ten years but have yet to marry or discuss children. After fighting with Rory about the book idea, Lorelai spontaneously leaves home to hike the Pacific Crest Trail in the manner of Wild.
Emily eventually accepts her husband's death, sells their home, effectively quits the D. A. R., and moves to Nantucket, single and independent for the first time in her life. Despite never actually hiking, Lorelai returns from her trip, reconciles with Emily and Rory, and asks Luke to marry her. Rory visits her father, Christopher (David Sutcliffe), to inform him of the wedding. She asks him why he allowed Lorelai to raise her as a single mother and they agree that it turned out for the best. Luke and Lorelai marry in the gazebo and, in the final scene of the series, Rory reveals to Lorelai that she's pregnant.
