For all the fans that got excited when that picture appeared online, I have some sad news. One of our favorite actresses our right now -- Melissa McCarthy -- will not be reprising her role as Sookie in Gilmore Girls. Here's an interview with E! News with McCarthy:
“I don’t think I am. I didn’t actually get asked to do it. But I think they thought I was busy, and then by the time it did come up, then I actually was. I’m actually thrilled that it’s happening. I loved that show, and I think the fans for that show are super loyal and great and I will watch every single one of them.”
I remember my girlfriend making me watch it back in the day and I am sad to hear she won't be returning. But the rest of the main cast are back, Graham, Bledel, Bishop and a slew of other characters from the show.
So far, the planned revival is on Netflix and there's tad more information to get you geared up for the show. The show has planned four more extended episodes -- that will show the different the seasons as time goes by. Just when you think she's gone, she's asked if she would be willing to return if the show got another season? She replies:
“I want to cook again. I want to put salt and then stir. That was seven years of my life and it was really great. I was proud of that show.”
Are you sad that Melissa McCarthy is not returning?
