It seems as if there must have been a giant miscommunication here, but perhaps it can all be solved sooner rather than later.
Gilmore Girls will return to Netflix with a revival series, and it looks as if a majority of the cast is back and ready to pick up where we left off.
Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, Scott Patterson, Keiko Agena, and Sean Gunn are all returning, but creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is sad to say that Melissa McCarthy hasn't confirmed a reprisal at all.
Amy tells TVLine:
"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."
I mean, McCarthy's character was in all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls. Wouldn't it only make sense for Sookie St. James to return?
Well, it appears as if Melissa's team hasn't made the actress aware of Amy's reach out, as she recently tweeted:
Okay, so maybe McCarthy just finished the sixth and final season of Mike & Molly, and sure she is hosting Saturday Night Live on February 13th. And let's not forget she has The Boss and Ghostbusters coming out in April and this summer. But maybe, just maybe, she can squeeze some time into her busy schedule and make an appearance, as even just one day will suffice.
While no premiere date has been announced, we will continue to hold our breath and hope that Lorelai and Sookie are back together again, even if it's just for a little bit.
