After finishing the four-part Gilmore Girls revival titled A Year In the Life, many fans began to question “what happens next?!” after they were left with a bit of a cliffhanger.
“Just as an experience, it was kind of perfect,” Graham said of working on the Netflix revival. “I always said, while we were doing it, that I couldn’t see more episodes in that form.”
“Five years from now do you have A Very Gilmore Christmas? Maybe, but there’s no reason anymore except enjoyment,” Graham said. “And, actually, I think there’s far more risk to continue — you run the risk of disappointing people.”
Graham also explained that she has her sights on other career goals that go beyond the realm of acting. “I kind of got what I wanted out of this, out of being an actor, and now I’m actually just as interested in helping somebody else have that, whether through directing or producing,” she added.
For now, Graham said that writing gives her a satisfaction that is “very new and refreshing. What’s satisfying to me has changed, so now I like to be part of the creative process, not just get a script and go do it.”
“I’m just devoted to storytelling, and I don’t care as much if I’m in it anymore,” Graham said. “I’d be just as happy to write it.”

At this past summer’s Television Critics Association press tour, Graham said the episodes for the Netflix revival “show how these bonds take us through all the different stages of our lives.”
“It’s not a story about a little girl anymore who’s in high school,” she said. “It’s a story of a young woman and all the struggles she faces and the dynamics between these two women. They’ve grown up, but they’re the same.”
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life started streaming on Netflix Canada on Nov. 25, 2016.
