Even though it was reported that Melissa McCarthy wouldn’t be able to join the Gilmore GirlsÂ reboot, the actress revealed that she will be returning as her character Sookie. McCarthy stopped by Ellen to spill the news.
“Literally, about an hour and a half ago, we figured out that I’m going to go and do it, and I’m so excited. [Series creator] Amy Sherman-Palladino is gonna squeeze me in to do it and Iâ€™m very happy to go back to Stars Hollow.”
Due to McCarthy’s busy schedule, her character Sookie won’t have a full story line, but we are so happy she will still be involved.
