Is the Gilmore Girls revival going to give us the final four words to Bunheads, too?!
TVLine has learned exclusively that Sutton Foster — who headlined Gilmore creator Amy Sherman-Palladino’s late, great, painfully short-lived ABC Family dramedy Bunheads — will have a role in the upcoming Netflix continuation.
Sutton Foster is a two-time Tony winning actress with a quick smile and a desire to play “quirky off-the-wall weirdos” instead of “steely, sexy secretaries, sleeping with everybody and being nasty.” Many Broadway fans met her first in “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” where she was chosen from the chorus to play the lead in 2002.
On Friday, she was focused on her 2012 show, “Bunheads.” The ATX television festival reunited some cast members of the 2012 show as part of its “gone too soon” series. The show was cut by ABC Family after 18 episodes.
It’s been two years and four-ish months since the ladies of ABC Family’s Bunheads danced their way off of our screens (though never out of our hearts). So, what are the former residents of Paradise up to now?
That was one of the many questions fielded by the show’s creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, who was joined by three of its stars — Sutton Foster, Kelly Bishop and Stacey Oristano — on a panel at the ATX Television Festival on Friday.
