The Gilmore Girls Netflix revival, launching on Friday, November 25, will showcase the infamous final four words that were always supposed to end the series.

But with Netflix’s release model making all four “movies” available at once, those who can’t wait to see how the story concludes can (in theory) jump to the end to spoil it for themselves. “It would be great if people who wanted to see the last four words first got some therapy before the Netflix series aired and got rid of that inclination,” Gilmore Girls executive producer Amy Sherman-Palladino joked during the show’s Television Critics Association panel.

“Because it really is a journey leading up to the last four words. It’s really going to mean a lot more if you’ve taken the journey. It’s going to mean a lot less if you skip to the last [figurative] page. That being said, what can I do? I would hope the people would want to take the whole trip.”

Sherman-Palladino also acknowledged that as of now, there are no plans for the series to continue on beyond these four installments. “This is what it is right now,” she said. But since this also once seemed unlikely, so nothing can be totally written off.
