Could we get our wish? Will Sookie join the Netflix revival of ‘Gilmore Girls?’ Well we could be one step closer with this selfie.
Melissa McCarthy‘s Sookie was one of the most beloved parts of Gilmore Girls so when she said she wasn’t invited back, we were totally crushed. However, Yanic Truesdale, AKA Michel, just reunited with her for a picture making us think that maybe now she has been asked after all.
“Scotch, great meal and catching up with my old friend @melissamccarthy, can’t ask for more! Dont read anything into it guys,” Yanic wrote as a caption of his selfie on Instagram. But we’re totally looking into it. Prior to posting the selfie, Yanic also posted selfies with various members of the cast who have signed on, including Lorelia, Dean and Christopher Hayden.
While most of the original cast is returning — Jared Padalecki (Dean), Matt Czuchry (Logan), Milo Ventimiglia (Jess), Alexis Bledel (Rory), Lauren Graham (Lorelai), Scott Patterson (Luke) and Kelly Bishop (Emily) — the creator admitted that Melissa is really busy.
“She’s really f—ing busy,” Amy Sherman-Palladino told our sister publication, TVLine. “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.”
Well we have a feeling maybe that has changed. Do you think Melissa will join the revival? Do you want her to? Let us know!
