The return of Sookie! After all that back and forth, we’ve finally got our first glance at Melissa McCarthy back on set of ‘Gilmore Girls!’
We know it wasn’t easy to get Melissa McCarthy to make a cameo in the Gilmore Girls revival, A Day in the Life. But it happened, and now we have photographic proof of the return of Sookie! It’s official. As if we weren’t already excited enough. See the pic here.
“#Gilmorecostumesjoylove,” the costumer for the show, Brenda Maben captioned the Instagram pic of herself with Melissa and Yanic Truesdale who plays Michel on the show. In the photo, Melissa has on that purple bandana and honestly, she hasn’t aged a day since her final episode of Gilmore Girls, which aired in May 2007.
Melissa recently went on Ellen to announce that she’d be on the show. “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 on the April 8 show. Watch Gilmore Girls on Amazon now.
“There was a whole thing, and then I was gonna be out of the country and blah, blah, blah… 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.”
Are you excited to see Sookie on Gilmore Girls which it hits Netflix later this year?
