Melissa McCarthy Is Returning to Gilmore Girls, and All Is Right with the World

Today is the greatest day.

Yes, it’s Friday, but more importantly…MELISSA MCCARTHY IS JOINING THE GILMORE GIRLS REBOOT. This not a drill or a delayed April Fool’s Day prank. McCarthy is 100 percent, as-sure-as-we’re-breathing reprising her role of Sookie and returning to Stars Hollow. Our favorite TV chef is coming back to life, y’all!

McCarthy announced the big news on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week. “Literally about an hour and a half ago, we figured out that I’m going to go back and do it, and I am so excited,” McCarthy told host Ellen DeGeneres. We are, too. Actually, we’re peeing ourselves, but let’s blaze past that.
