Alright, who else is confused? Right after the ‘Gilmore Girls’ creator confirmed that she was working hard to get a Melissa McCarthy cameo in the Netflix revival in some way, shape or form, Melissa revealed she hadn’t even been asked.
Amy Sherman-Palladino, you better get on the phone! The creator of Gilmore Girls just started working on the four-episode special that will air on Netflix and while many of the original are returning — Lorelai (Lauren Graham), Rory (Alexis Bledel), Luke (Scott Patterson) and Emily (Kelly Bishop) included — it’s been tough to work around Melissa McCarthy‘s schedule. Now, Melissa just responded to a fan begging her to return — and her tweet kind of shocked us!
It all started when a fan tweeted at Melissa, writing “@melissamccarthy PUH-LEEZ come back to Stars Hollow!! #gilmoregirlsrevival.” And with that, she retweeted and responded. “Thanks for the invite, but sadly no one asked me or Sookie to come back to Stars Hollow. Wish them all the best!!,” she wrote.
This is odd to us, since our sister publication TVLine just spoke with Amy, who said they’d pretty much write her in, in any way they could.
“She’s really f—ing busy,” Amy said in the Q&A. “But the thing I have said [to her team] is, ‘Look, if Melissa is available and has an afternoon free, I’ll write her a scene. Melissa was one of us. If she has a spare moment to run over [to the set] — even if for just a cameo — we would be totally game. And if it’s a last-minute thing, I would write her in and we would figure it out. That’s the way we left it.”
Do you believe it? Do you want to see Sookie return? Let us know!
