Sookie is back. Actress Melissa McCarthy, who has become a box office superstar since first appearing on the series Gilmore Girls in the early 2000s, recently told Ellen DeGeneres that she will return for the next season of the fan-favorite show when it airs to Netflix. Despite some early questions about her potential role in the new season (she previously tweeted, “Sadly no one asked me or Sookie to come back to Stars Hollow. Wish them all the best!!”), McCarthy and the producers now appeared to have come together.
In the episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show schedule to air today, she said, “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.”
So far, the official release date hasn’t been confirmed.
