While we were hoping for an ABC Family Gilmore Girls Holiday Reunion... this'll do, pig, this'll do. Amy Sherman Palladino, Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel (and we're guessing some of Stars Hollow's finest) will be reuniting for an ATX Writers' Room next June. The cast of Dawson's Creek will get the same panel treatment during the festival... which is sadly far far away in Austin, but now you can stream a whole bunch of episodes on your way there.
In a statement regarding the event, Amy Sherman-Palladino (the creator of Gilmore Girls), said: "So after years of peace and quiet these lunatics have chosen to get the chattiest chicks in the world back under one roof? Really? Okay. You asked for it... Gilmore was the highlight of my ridiculous life. I can't wait to sit with these unbelievable broads and relive a time where sleep did not exist where stress and coffee were mama's little helpers and where we all dove into the deep end together to make something weird and very very cool."
As for a REAL reunion, Graham told E!, "It wasn't a satisfying ending. And with all this time that's gone by, would you actually feel disappointed because it wouldn't be the thing you'd wanted all this time? I don't know."
As for Dawson's Creek's ATX panel, that will include creator Kevin Williamson, showrunner Greg Berlanti, and producers/writers/assistants Jenny Bicks, Julie Plec, Rob Thomas, Liz Tigelaar, Paul Stupin, Rina Mimoun, Maggie Friedman, Anna Fricke, and Dana Baratta. ARE YOU TOO GOOD FOR REUNIONS VAN DER BEEK?
