As we frantically binge watch all of Gilmore Girls to get up to speed for Netflix's upcoming revival, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, costume supervisor Brenda Maben is busy posting on Instagram and getting us all excited for the show's big return.

Maben's latest post shows off a cast member we only learned was definitely returning a couple of months back: Melissa McCarthy as Sookie St. James.

And it's looking like McCarthy will be returning to the role with ease, complete with Sookie's signature bandana headband:

It's been nine years since Gilmore Girls ended, and in those nine years McCarthy has undoubtedly become the biggest star from the entire cast of the show. She'll be headlining one of summer's biggest blockbusters, Ghostbusters, and has churned out a number of successful comedies in the last few years.

As much as I love McCarthy and the success she's found, it makes my heart sing to see her back in Stars Hollow.

GIlmore Girls: A Year in the Life will debut on Netflix with four 90-minute episodes, each set during a particular season.
