Ausiello has a lengthy interview with Amy Sherman Palladino and Daniel Palladino about why they’re leaving Gilmore GIrls:

Ausiello: So you wouldn’t rule out returning for the finale?

Amy: A lot of it’s gonna depend on where the show goes next year. I have very strong, emotional feelings about things — some are rational, some are not. [Laughs] It’s going to be a whole different trip next year, with different story lines that don’t come out of my head, so I think that’s something that’s really hard to talk about at this point. Especially since I plan on being drunk the entire year.

Even though there have been a LOT of problems with this season, still very sad… Although oddly, they seem completely unaware of the problems with this season.

  1. I agree that this story is sad and I wish that they would continue writing the show. But I’m actually kind of excited to see how it fares without them. Nervous and anxious, but also excited. Last night’s ep was credited to David Rosenthal, the new showrunner, and I thought it was really good.
    I don’t know that it’s quite fair to say that ASP and DP seem unaware of problems. They’re aware that other people think there are problems. It’s not a matter of fact that the show has problems; it’s a matter of opinion. They see this season’s stories in terms of finding new depth and complexity in the characters. I found their points in favor of this season to be persuasive.

  2. You know, I’ve never had a problem with where the show has gone in terms of storylines — and I really don’t now. I do think that this season has been very uneven and that the quality of the writing hasn’t been consistent. Definitely not as consistent as previous seasons.
    I find it interesting that there was no mention of the show they were developing during the first part of the year that vanished when CW was announced.

  3. Wow, that ASP is a talker, ain’t she?
    There’s a few layers of obfuscation, but underneath them, I read the break-up as: They played chicken with the studio for more writers, more support, as well as the 2-year contract, and lost.
    Is that how you read it, G.?

  4. Yep. And some of the arguments seem a little overblown to me — how are they more certain what they’ll be doing in 300 days now, you know?
