Milo Ventimiglia Just Gave Fans the WORST News About Gilmore Girls’ Jess
How many ways can Milo Ventimiglia break our hearts? Not only does he regularly have us crying our eyes out during This Is Us (though, admittedly, he does try to help us out with the emotional aftermath), he’s now given fans the WORST news about Gilmore Girls’ Jess Mariano.
While GG fans keep their fingers crossed and hope for even more new episodes from the beloved series (seriously, they can’t leave us with *that* cliff-hanger!), the man who played Rory’s rough-around-the-edges-yet-totally-lovable boyfriend has some seriously bad news for those on #TeamJess.
“I hear rumors that they’re bringing back everything that I’ve ever been a part of,” Ventimiglia said according to USA Today. “I think it’s exciting. At times, though, I think it’s too much.”
So what does that mean for a return to Stars Hollow? “There are more stories to tell with a lot of these characters,” he began, giving us total hope. But then added, “at the same time some of these characters for some of us actors are more than a decade in the past. It was exciting going back to Gilmore Girls for the four Netflix movies, but I’m satisfied with it.” Yep, that means what you think it means. Ventimiglia isn’t likely to reprise his role as Jess.
He continued, “I think the stories were told. I think it was great for the audience and fans to get just one small taste of that world again. But, at the same time, I think people should not get so greedy.” We can’t help being greedy! We love the Gilmore Girls (and Jess) so friggin’ much!
Are you sad to learn that Milo Ventimiglia isn’t likely to return as Jess on the Gilmore Girls? Let us know @BritandCo!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
