'Gilmore Girls' fans think there's a major clue that someone's having a baby

There might be a third generation of “Gilmore Girls” when the show comes back on Netflix this fall. 

The official Instagram account for the show posted a photograph of an alluring pile of Pop-Tarts, which also featured heavily in the first trailer for the revival, but what really got fans attention was the inclusion of an apple, because it might be hinting that somebody is going to get pregnant.

“Gilmore Girls” established that the only time Lorelai Gilmore craves apples is when she’s pregnant. She was craving them back when she was pregnant with Rory, and got freaked out that she might have gotten pregnant with Luke’s child when she started to hunger for the fruit while waiting for Sookie to give birth. That ended up being a false alarm, but apples are so strongly tied to pregnancy in the show that it’s fair to assume the people running the Instagram account knew what they were doing. 

The Netflix revival is going to span an entire year, which is plenty of time to show a pregnancy come to term. Perhaps Lorelai will have a second child, or maybe Rory will get pregnant, giving Emily Gilmore a great-granddaughter. Or — gasp! — could there be a Gilmore guy!?

We’ll find out when “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” drops on November 25.
