Yes! The ‘Gilmore Girls’ Netflix Revival Will Include Melissa McCarthy’s Sookie St. James

Sookie 1

Remember that Gilmore Girls Netflix revival that was rumoured to be happening? Well, it is, and the very singular Sookie, aka best friend of Lorelai, aka actor Melissa McCarthy, will be joining the other original cast members in the line-up.

For a while there we had to try and imagine a Stars Hollow without the vivacious Sookie, so thank goddess for that!

“I’m going to go back and do it,” McCarthy announced on Ellen. “[Series creator] Amy Sherman-Palladino is going to squeeze me in to do it. I’m very happy to go back to Stars Hollow.”

Sookie is of course known for her bubbly character as the chef and perfect best friend for Lorelai #1.

See some of the newly-released pics of the show’s revival here, in which Rory is a teacher and Lorelai and Luke seem to be living happily ever after. Hmmm…

Gilmore Girls will be released in the form of four movies by Netflix. See a Sookie highlight from the original series below.
