It looks like a Gilmore Girls revival is not off the table. 

Another installment of Gilmore Girls could be heading our way now that a deal between Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino was inked with Amazon Studios was inked.

The Palladinos, the creative duo behind Gilmore Girls, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and many other productions, have come back home to Amazon. The deal was announced by Amazon Wednesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. 

“Amy and Dan have a remarkable partnership, grounded in their complete trust in each other and evidenced by the magic they create on-screen — especially with revolutionary roles for women and with their trademark brilliant dialogue,” said Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke in a statement. “We celebrate the critical success of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and our extended overall deal with them, which will allow our Amazon Prime audience to continue to enjoy their groundbreaking show and future original series from this incredible duo.”

“We did everything we possibly could to scare them off, but nothing worked,” said Sherman-Palladino. “So now we happily plant our flag in Amazon world.”

“Amazon is now housed at the studio where Amy and I first met. How could we consider working anywhere else?” added Palladino.

While talking to reporters Vernon Sanders, Co-Head of Television at Amazon Studios said, “I don’t think [we’ve discussed Gilmore Girls]. We are talking to Amy and Dan about a lot of things. That hasn’t come up. But I do think it speaks to our overall philosophy when it comes to talent, which is we think it benefits us when we have talent that’s creatively happy and have opportunities to do many things,” Sanders added. “If that show were to continue and it isn’t for us, we would obviously be happy to see it happen.” 

Gilmore Girls ran for seven seasons on The WB staring in 2000. It was revived almost a decade later by Netflix with a four-part series titled A Year in the Life.
