Rejoice! Melissa McCarthy is Returning to Gilmore Girls

Dry your tears, Sookie is back.

Great news for all Gilmore Girls fanatics—not only is the show being rebooted into four movies for Netflix, but Melissa McCarthy will be reclaiming her role as Sookie!

It's been rumored for weeks that McCarthy wouldn't be returning to the show, which saddened fans and put a damper on our celebrations. During her recent appearance on Ellen, however, McCarthy dropped a bombshell, saying "Literally about an hour and half ago, we figured out that I'm gonna go back and do it and I am so excited. And [the movies] are gonna be amazing."

Watch the video below to see Melissa's announcement.

McCarthy described the show as "near and dear" to her heart, and went on to explain that until recently, she had not found a way to make the Gilmore Girls filming schedule work for her. Thankfully though, they've got it figured out now, and we can expect to see her again!

"I'm very happy to go back to Stars Hollow," she said. "I'm just really excited about that."


What do you think of Melissa's commitment to the upcoming Netflix reboot of Gilmore Girls?
