Yes it’s true — Sookie is back! Melissa McCarthy just confirmed it, saying ‘I’m very happy to go back to Stars Hollow!’
After a ton of back and forth and busy schedules, Melissa McCarthy has confirmed that Sookie will indeed make an appearance on the Gilmore Girls revival coming to Netflix! Watch her announcement below.
“There has been something that I have been asked about so, so many times and it hasn’t worked out and there is… they’re making four new movies of the ‘Gilmore Girls’ which is a show which was near and dear to my heart for four years and we could not get those schedules to work,”she said during Ellen, airing on Friday, April 8.
She continued, saying “there was a whole thing — and then I was gonna be out of the country and blah, blah, blah.” However, after all that, she said, “And literally about an hour and half ago, we figured out that I’m gonna go back and do it and I am so excited. And they are gonna be amazing.”
She also gushed over Amy Sherman-Palladino, saying she was “going to squeeze me in to do it! So it just happened and I got asked a lot about it and as of not even two hours ago it’s happening!”

Of course, we are surprised but Amy recently told EW that she’d do anything to just have a few hours with Melissa. “Social media makes people angry at each other for no reason,” Amy said. “There’s nothing malicious going on.” She then aded, “We’ve just put it out in the universe: We’re here until May 10. 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. If she finds that time, I don’t care when it is, we will make it happen.”
Well, it worked! Sookie is back!
