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鈥檚 now given fans the WORST news about Gilmore Girls鈥 Jess Mariano.

While GG fans keep their fingers crossed and hope for even more new episodes from the beloved series (seriously, they can鈥檛 leave us with *that* cliff-hanger!), the man who played Rory鈥檚 rough-around-the-edges-yet-totally-lovable boyfriend has some seriously bad news for those on #TeamJess.

鈥淚 hear rumors that they鈥檙e bringing back everything that I鈥檝e ever been a part of,鈥 Ventimiglia said according to USA Today. 鈥淚 think it鈥檚 exciting. At times, though, I think it鈥檚 too much.鈥

So what does that mean for a return to Stars Hollow? 鈥淭here are more stories to tell with a lot of these characters,鈥 he began, giving us total hope. But then added, 鈥渁t 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鈥檓 satisfied with it.鈥 Yep, that means what you think it means. Ventimiglia isn鈥檛 likely to reprise his role as Jess.

He continued, 鈥淚 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.鈥 We can鈥檛 help being greedy! We love the Gilmore Girls (and Jess) so friggin鈥 much!

Are you sad to learn that Milo Ventimiglia isn鈥檛 likely to return as Jess on the Gilmore Girls? Let us know @BritandCo!
