“We've got the Gilmore clause, we've carved it out,” Sherman-Palladino laughs in discussing her new Amazon deal, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and the clause that will allow her to return to Netflix to make more Gilmore Girls. “The thing about Gilmore Girls is, it's an amorphous thing. The reason that it happened the first time is because we all went to that Austin (ATX) Festival and we all sat together and there was an open bar and we were all sitting there saying, 'It feels good now, let's do it now.' I think it would have to be a similar situation. There would have to be an open bar and we would have to have the right story and the right format and it would have to be a time where the girls and us all felt like, 'Yeah, let's dive in again.' There's nothing being planned right now but it's open if the muse strikes.” ALSO: Why it’s time to accept that Gilmore Girls is not coming back, at least not soon.
