Gilmore Girls fans are elated at the news that Melissa McCarthy is returning to the revival, coming to Netflix.
She broke the news Sookie would return on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“There has something I’ve been asked about so, so many times, and it hasn’t worked out. They’re making four new movies of the Gilmore Girls, which is a show that was near and dear to my heart for four years, and we could not get those schedules to work,” McCarthy told DeGeneres.
“There was a whole thing, and then I was going to be out of the country, and literally about an hour and a half ago, we figured out that I’m going to go back and do it, and I am so excited! They’re going to be amazing.”
The announcement has plenty of love from GG fans on social media, many of whom had feared she would miss out.
Netflix has also released “first look” photos of the revival available on Variety.
