Gilmore Girls - Melissa McCarthy Returning

Thanks to tsukikomew for the heads up.

After months of will-she or won’t-she speculation, Melissa McCarthy has agreed to reprise her role as Sookie in Netflix’s forthcoming Gilmore Girls revival, I’ve learned exclusively.

McCarthy quickly took to twitter to say she never received said invite. “Sadly no one asked me or Sookie to come back to Stars Hollow. Wish them all the best!!”

Sherman-Palladino re-extended the invite this week in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “We’ve just put it out into the universe; we’re here until May 10,” she told the mag. “I know what the scene is. I’ll pre-light it for her. She can drive up, run in, shoot it, and run out. I can get her in and out in two hours.”

According to sources, McCarthy will tape her appearance in the coming days.
