LOS ANGELES, Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino told reporters that she still hadn't seen the show's final season after she exited after the sixth season.

"Nothing against the seventh season," she said, "but any writer who was so emotionally connected to something and then pulled out of it is going to find it very hard to go back into that world and not feel like you either want to slit your own wrist and die slowly in a swimming pool, or be angry or be jealous."

Sherman-Palladino and writer/director husband Daniel Palladino walked away from the network in 2006 after failed contract negotiations.

The duo are back for Netflix's revival of the series, which is set to stream on the network in November.

Sherman talked about how she relied on friends who had seen the seventh season to help her make sure that she didn't "step on" anything in the upcoming continuation.

"There was one thing I wish ... I'm not going to tell you," she said. "It was the only thing where I was like, 'Ah I'll go a different way.'"
