Will Melissa McCarthy Return for Netflix's 'Gilmore Girls' Revival? Amy Sherman-Palladino Weighs In

With the newly announced Gilmore Girls revival series coming to Netflix (it begins filming today!), fans are wondering if Melissa McCarthy will return!

The 45-year-old actress portrayed the role of Sookie St. James on the hit series, and soon after the show ended, her career skyrocketed!

“She’s really f—ing busy,” Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino told TV Line. “But the thing I have said [to her team] is, ‘Look, if Melissa is available and has an afternoon free, I’ll write her a scene.’ Melissa was one of us. If she has a spare moment to run over [to the set] — even if for just a cameo — we would be totally game. And if it’s a last-minute thing, I would write her in and we would figure it out. That’s the way we left it.”
